H.I.S.S. v5 Prototype Camouflage Custom

hisstank-jungle-camo-custom
It's been a while since we have featured a V5 H.I.S.S. Tank. This one comes from boards member Balaclava and his is first try at a G.I. Joe Custom.

"I started with a 30th Crimson H.I.S.S. v5.
1) base coat of flat tan or khaki
2) put some 'sharp' pieces of tape in random places
3) wrapped it with a mesh laundry bag
4) light coat of satin nutmeg
5) more 'sharp' pieces of tape in random places
6) light coat of flat olive drab
*opened it and thought wow that looks like a snake or lizard's mouth
7) factory stickers
8) long and painful process of adding the raised camouflage..."

This is my First Custom!

I started with a 30th Crimson H.I.S.S. v5.
1) base coat of flat tan or khaki
2) put some 'sharp' pieces of tape in random places
3) wrapped it with a mesh laundry bag
4) light coat of satin nutmeg
5) more 'sharp' pieces of tape in random places
6) light coat of flat olive drab
*opened it and thought wow that looks like a snake or lizard's mouth
7) factory stickers
8) long and painful process of adding the raised camouflage...


Thanks Maverick for encouraging me to stop thinking about customs and start customizing...

























Jinx723:
Nice, me like.
maverick2076:
This turned out so well. The camo pattern and the raised mesh breaking up the outline fit in well with the angular lines of the HISS, and the whole scheme really fits well with the hyperrealistic POC style. Outstanding job! Now that you've opened the custom can of worms, I can't wait to see what comes next!

And that last pic, showing the sun shining through the plastic, is freaking cool!
DESTRO:
Very good work on that Tank.
orezona:
Yo dawg, I heard you liked tanks so I shot your photos of your tank on a tank!

Awesome. The camo pattern turned out really sweet.
A.V.A.C.:
Me likey!!
Dusty79:
Looks awesome. Great paint work. I don't think I would change a thing.
Dusty79:
Was leaving the interior red done intentionally? Because it looks like a snake opening its mouth that way. Pretty cool.
theprocess:
Nice pattern man, looks phenomenal!
Mr Hebime:
Awesome!!!! Congrats on the front page
1FormidableJoe:
This is very nice!
swampmojo:
Beautiful!
soundwavempl:
Awesome custom! Great job and congrats on being front paged!
Xerofall:
Impressive, even more so once I realized you have him on top of an actual tank.
Balaclava:
Thanks guys!!!

I was shocked that this made the front page...that's a lot of pressure for any future projects...

The red interior was not planned. That just sort of happened. I opened it up, had the same thought, and then showed it to Maverick (while he was working on the Iron H.I.S.S.). And gotta give Mav some more props...he took the photos.

Thanks for looking!
Jasonwelcome:
This is insanely cool! Front page this!
gruppenfuhrer88:
pretty cool man, nice work!
Dake:
Really great details and I love the "mouth". That's an awesome accident.
danielgogeta:

Marine_Deadpool:

^^agreed^^
Balaclava:
Again thanks for the compliments!

I'm also glad someone finally noticed the tank...Maverick has taken multiple photos on that thing and I don't believe anyone has identified it up to this point...
DARKWIND:
Love it!!
