A little project long in the making... Figured the Joe team could use a good Marine sniper, so I made them one. Initial progress on this can be found below...
No code name yet... but I am wokring out the details for his File Card.
Using an SRO Duke body and Head, I made some major modifications to the upper torso and upper legs. I added pockets to the upper arms, on the chest, and made the uniform look like an undersuit of a Ghille. I took the head and added milliput to the hair and completely altered the hair design, changed the skintone alitlle, and added some face paint. No, his hair cut is not with in Marine Corps standards!
I used some camo netting and a Ghille strands from a Dragon Toys Ghille Suit material set to construct the suit. Each string is tied to the netting, the suit alone probably took me one full night to make! I also sculpted a padded war belt and straps that hold the SERPA Holster and ammo pouches on his legs. His hands have sculpted NOMEX Flight gloves (Sculpted Cuffs), painted to match with gray leather palms.
Weapons include a MEUSOC .45 in a quick draw Blackhawk SERPA holster (holster is detachable from the thigh rig), and an M40 Sniper Rifle. I may switch it out for one Marauder Johns M14 EBR's that I just ordered last night.
Anyhow, here are the shots!
