So, I've been sporadically cleanin' & reorganizin' my workbench & have been comin' across some kinda interesting parts... I don't know about the rest of U guys, but, I try to give my customs as much articulation as possible w/o sacrificing design elements. The afore mentioned "interesting" parts, I had previously considered "unusable" - specifically a World Peacekeepers (PTE) buggy driver figure... I was intrigued by the hybrid "T-crotch/hinged" hip articulation combined w/ the mid thigh rotational articulation, but disliked the lower boot/ankle construction... What to do??? Well, I had a WW2 CaptainAmerica that had rocker style ankles with rotational articulation @ the boot tops & decided to attempt a "mating" of the 2... here is the process & end result --- not completely satisfied w/ the position of the single hinged knee, but the proportions seem proper & hopefully I can "disguise" them in the finished product. I am NOT a tutorial guy - this just demonstrates how to get the most out of odd combonations of parts (somethin' I seem to have a knack for)
World Peacekeeper (PTE) crotch & legs - unaltered & pics of the crazy articulation
Lower leg surgery - stage 1
Lower leg surgery - stage 2
Lower leg w/ transplanted CapAm boots
Post surgery - articulated poses
With torso added & belt area dremelled down...
Feel free to add any articulation modifications U may have done to this thread...
