Liar! NOT your first!
How else could that yellow look so good while my paint makes me collapse on the floor and cry? I've been working on my firsts(well, first 25ths and first for a decade or more) and the yellow is driving me nuts! Brand? Tips?
Ballsy move with Lowlight's head! Glad it turned out well, must have been frustrating.
And why no boogieboard for Muskrat? He needs that tiny thing for...I have no idea why he would ever use that thing. So, good riddance!
Great, solid job. Hope to be as proud of mine as you should be of these.

excellent, excellent work... especially for your firsts... I'm in the same boat, I've never really customized before, but now that we know with pretty high certainty what figs we'll never see, I'm thinking of doing these three, too.

I have been wondering if the resolute duke helmet would work for airtight. Now I know. Good job on all of them.

Thanks guys, I didnt think you'd like em so much. I'm really honored.
I just took ideas i saw here and copied them if anything I should be thanking all the guys whos creativity I ripped off.
I guess if anything I owe a reciepe in case anyone wants to further on what I did.
body is Barbecue
head and helmet is from Resolute 5pk Duke.
back-pack and vacume are from original 80's Airtight.
you'll notice I drilled a small hole on the bottom of the canister on his chest and another hole on the side of the back pack, then ran a hose between them.
As for the paint job: I had to do three coats of Model Masters acrylic gloss yellow to finally cover up the orange. the probelm is three coats makes it thick and whenever you pose him the rubbing between parts makes the paint rub off. to solve this I applied model masters paint thinner around the joints, this will thin it enough to where it wont scratch but still retain a solid yellow look.
The back of the knee and shoulder joints are flat black as it bonds well and wont scratch off when you pose him.
Body is Clutch (Vamp).
arms are from Torch.
Vest is from Wild bill (3-pack w/Ace and skyduster).
Belt from Roadblock (canada).
Hat and machete from cheep Ture Heroes soldier.
Shot gun is Flint's from 5pk.
The back-pack holster is from an old ninja turtle belt.
I never got what the boogie board was for either so i scrapped it.
Body is Wild-Bill (3 pack)
legs are from Snake Eyes comando
hands are from Torch
Vest is from Roadblock, I cut off a gun holster from an H-harness and glued it onto the vest, snipers should always have a side arm!
Head is Tunnel Rat from the Venom Vs. Valor two pack.
Goggles are snake eyes comando head dremelled till only the goggles where left.
the anti-material gun is from the Hulk comando two-pack.
Im working on some others, thanks again for the amazing feedback guys.
