ok, these are my first attempt at customizing. i tried to keep them close to the originals with only a few minor things different or updated. the hardest part was trying to come close to the original colors.
leatherneck: the brown camo didn't come out so dark in these photos. i could have painted the grenades and knife black like on the original but i thought it looked better this way with more detail. i also thought he looked better in longer combat boots instead of the short boots that hasbro gave him in the original and on their 25th version.
falcon: i wanted to give him the knife, flashlight and cargo pockets that the original had.plus the short sleeves. then i also had to paint the yellow symbol on his sleeve - it came out so-so i guess. im still waiting on a better head and gloveless hands to come from broken arrow. although i think the gloves are growing on me.
heavy metal: i bought a $5 gold marker just to paint the few gold parts that the original one had(although they are completely faded off of my original). the triangle thing on his jacket didn't come out so well. too small and detailed for me. i changed the brown on the side of his helmet. was originally gonna have it in a circle like the original but then thought it looked better this way on this helmet.i still need to get a strap from a bazooka helmet to add to it.
i ramble on too much- hope you enjoy the pix

Those look great. Really digging how you tried to be as faithful as possible to your source material whilst incorporating some perfectly sensible updates.
