Well, it's finally done, Panthro V2. First things first massive thanks to Crisco on this one for advice on solving paint rub issues and for inspiring me to finally buy a dremmel, also thanks to mighty Tom, Glennwebman69 and Esbat for their female figures advice.
This one has been in the works for at least two months now, mostly due to shortage of spare time. Anyways, here goes on the recipe:
PART 1: Started of with WWE deluxe Shelton benjamin, cracked open his bottom part and swapped the top of his legs with a curt hawkins as he had the trunk tops on them.
PART 2: cracked the top part open so I could secure the spikes inside the body. The spikes are from my dogs old collar (thanks Retro for your services to customising). I drilled holes in the body then pushed the spikes through before sticking them in with Aves fixit. Used medical tape for the straps trimmed down and painted.
PART 3:Sculpted over Shelton's mouth to give him that Panthro chin.
PART4: The belt is made from an old pillow case with twistie ties hand sewn inside.
PART 5:Before putting it all back together I dremmeled a small amount out of the neck to add much needed articulation
PART 6: added articulation to the hands so he could hold his nunchucks
PART 7: Cut out toes and heels of boots sculpted over to add toe effect and sculpted top of boots. Added twistie ties to top and bottom of boot for his laces.
PART 8: Glued sheets of plastic to the side of his head and dremmeled into ear shapes then sulpted over.
PART 9: Nunchucks were made from wooden skewers with Saesee Tiens hands from starwars drilled out and put on the ends then sculpted over real chain from th wifes old jewelery then painted with humbrol enamels for a glossy flavour.
Part 10: Made wrist band from wrestling elbow pad fixit and wifes jewels again.
Part 11: glued on printed picture of cat symbol and painted the whole thing with games workshop paints
Part 12: cursed the wife for leaving the digital camera at work over weekend.
Part 13: Done

Cheers Crisco, it's been a while since I did this one, the face is kinda bugging me lately and I'm thinking of Panthro V2.5.
