Heres a request from a buddy. Prior to him requesting it, I had never heard of the character, let alone this version of him. Apparently he's a British legacy hero, and a total bad @$$. I liked everything I read about him, and I especially liked it when Deadpool knocked his block off. Take that England.

Something special that the guy want was that he have his v-wing glider, and that he can fold it and store it on his back. Gah... that was no fun. I ended up building it from styrene, with a few bits and bobbles thrown on. Its got a dubro hinge to old it over, and three magnets in it. 2 on the wings which attach to the magnets in his feet, and one on the turbine that connects to a magnet on his back, and to the one on the stand, which is from the ML Green Goblin. I'm not going to lie and say its perfectly stable, but its not hard to find the sweet spot for him on top of it. Only thing I wish was really different would be that I'd wish I had a double-hinge, so that it can lay flat against his back, but the cloak hides it well.

He's completely the 2-Pack Nick Fury, except for his head which is the XMC Archangel, and his shoulder pads which are from the WM exclusive I'm. The piping is fishing line, and everything else was sculpt.

The cape was made by the amazing SpawnSauce, so big thanks to him. It really helps pull the whole thing together.

I'm shedding tears because 1) it seems no one read the 90's Thunderbolts comic, 2) It's Deadpool that turned a whole generation to knowing who Citizen V III is, and 3) how excellent and well executed this custom is...Great job!!!

no one reads thunderbolts?
Haha, I haven't read Thunderbolts either. I was introduced to Citizen V in Cable and Deadpool. After that I was hooked.

Perfect! This is just perfect! The accessories are just great too, like the sword and the glider, just awesome! The mask came out fantastic, I think you executed it spot on!
I like that this guy is kind of a customizing rarity as well, so good choice in subject matter as well!

I sure don't. I thought the Citizen V that was in Thunderbolts was Baron Zemo in disguise? Or were they both in it?
Thanks Fitz. He's pretty cool, you should look up his miniseries.
