I wanted to do a Daredevil in a long time. It seems like neither ToyBiz, nor Hasbro nailed a DD figure. I've used Face-OFF DD's head and gloves, ML4 Punisher boots and lower legs and the rest is from two pack SHIELD Agent. This was my first contact with this body and I'm totally in love with it. So many possibilities. It's cool Hasbro's using it for Steve Rogers in the ML relaunch.

Used Model Masters paints this time, black and insignia red. They're quite nice and half the price of Citadel where I live. Though mixing a good color is a bit tricky, since I wanted the figure to be in a bright costume and it turned into a movie-ish color palette. MM flat sealer gave DD this shiny look. It's beyond me how this happened, but I like the leathery look.

Devil's symbol are two Ds cut from a normal sticker and painted over a couple of times. His clubs are ear cleaning sticks cut in half and the big "joint clubs" is a lollipop stick. He also comes with long and short strings which, of course, are twist ties.
The pouch on his leg is from XMC Stealth Wolverine.

If you want my usual step by step write up, let me know. I'm not even sure anybody reads it ;)

I love this custom. your detail and effort does not go unappreciated, but I will confess that I don't read the step by step, simply because I can't customize. but this is such an awesome daredevil. I love everything about it, right down to the pouches and the boots. great work man!

Great sculpts! The parts came out great!

@thor: Thanks! No, I didn't stir the sealer. But I'll do it next time.
@cfc: The shorter one is from Playmates movie TMNT and the longer one's from MS Abominations. Yes, it's a little thicker than usual.

Thanks for the kind words, guys!

curious about your step by step, new to the forums and I along with others have wips and a tutorial like section going on in the custom workstation. Where did you get your twisty tie wire from, it looks thicker than normal? Still just great and love to see more over on the workstation.

I really like how this turned out! Great DD.

sweet looking, this is a great daredevil, I am not the biggest fan, but he looks spot on. I kinda like the shiny look, his costume to me should have more of the shiny feel or maybe a satin, rather than flat. But either way 10 out of 10.

Very cool!

"MM flat sealer gave DD this shiny look"
Did you get the brush on kind? If so you have to stir that stuff real good or it won't go on flat.
I used a similar build for my DD too.
MM Guard red mixed with tamiya base makes the perfect regular red.

I really like this daredevil the punisher lower legs looks awesome. I have a broken wave 4 punisher and would totally steal your recipe. Thats how cool it is.

Excellent, nice work!!!
Whiskeytango - Thursday, July 21, 2011
thats a great looking DD. I love the FO Punisher body too, and have used it more than any other base figure. I do have a critique though. I love the use of Punishers boots, but the lower legs look strange with all the fabric fold and wrinkles when compared to the rest of the skin tight body. That aside, really awesome figure.
Shinigami - Thursday, July 21, 2011
Yes, I was on the fence with the swap, but when you think about it, when someone tucks his pants into boots it has to come out and start to wrinkle. At least that's my was of explaining it.

Oh, the figure is much darker in hand and has a lot of different red shading. Maybe I'll try to take a better pic later.
