I've painted up some of my older vehicles. I painted my Ghoststriker X-16 to look more like a real F-16, especially the missles-still a WIP. I also painted some detail on the Cobra Pirrhana to get rid of the bright yellow on the guns, engine, and cockpit interior. And on a whim, i painted my Paralyzer to look more like a HISS tank.

I have started to paint up some of them. When I was a kid I also did but then stopped as they looked like crap. But now, after I have learned to paint ans air brush with model cars, I'm having a blast with them!
I have been getting rid of all the Joes I have worth money and getting ones that are cracked, missing parts, or cheap. I love changing them to what I think they should be.
What I have now, I dont really plan to get rid of....

it's too much fun not to paint them. we don't paint them all but it's soo much fun to do and you get some diversity in your play collection. see hte custom work link in my signature for some of the stuff me and my kids have done.
here is a picture of most of them.

Awesome stuff ((Tank Driver 785)) & ((Arch2B))! I love what you guys did.
What I am thinking of doing is something like HissTank member ((Fireflyed)) did... http://www.hisstank.com/forum/g-i-jo...mp-masher.html
I think the Wolverine is great. I want to add detail kind of like he did on the Wolverine on all of my vehicles. I won't paint the whole vehicle I'll probably just add detail to them like he did.
I also want to make some arctic and desert vehicles buy painting the whole vehicles white or tan. My fear is I spend the time and money to do it and then Hasbro comes out with arctic or desert ones of the vehicles I just did. Like the arctic Hisstank they are coming out with.

eh, most of the time i like my custom stuff better. take the target red hiss for example. looks silly to me next to my recreation sms crimson guard hiss to me. the artic hiss should be nice though however they don't like to paint the bottom track portion to color match. it looks soo much nicer when it is.
