I couldn't stand Duke's suicide wrists so I kind of fixed him. I don't think Duke would be the type of guy to flip open his cell phone or pull out a pocket watch to get the time so I sculpted a wristwatch for this left arm to hide the horrible wrist slit. What about the other arm? He can't wear two watches and he doesn't seem like the wristband type so I just got rid of the gap with Sculptey. Sure, he can't do the beauty pageant wave now, but at least he looks better. I also repainted the whole figure. The arms were different colors than the torso and the legs' tones didn't match up.
I made the strap for the binoculars with masking tape. Even though he still can't hold them to his eyes, at least he can wear them around his neck.
I also switched his head our with the superb Aloysha head. I see miked beat me to posting the head, but here it is...

Only the left swivels. The right is fixed, but I did it at an angle so he can hold his rifle. It doesn't really affect posing that much.

Looks Great! I really like the paint job. The watch is awesome- you really did a great job sculpting it. The Ally head is a real Duke saver and the quality is top notch. The casting is crisp and the cut of the neck is actually better than the stock 25th heads. I love the binoculars. I tried putting a strap on a pair of Marauder binoculars for mine, but I used plastic bands that are used to tie hair (someone on the boards reccomended them for gunstraps, etc.) and the bands are resistant to glue, so it didn't work out. I like what you've done, though. Very creative.
