Hi All

I have had this figure sitting on my bench for a long time and finally decided to complete him.

RECIPE

McCoy - The whole figure and equipment is from Artasylum/Diamond Select TOS series which was made a few years ago. The figures joints were superglued together and then puttied and let dry for a few hours.

The uniform (top & pants) were done by using tissue paper, I cut out the tissue paper and then used watered down PVA glue and attached it to the base figure and once the tissue paper dries it's actually very rigid.

The equipment as mentioned above is also from Artasylum/Diamond Select TOS series, the communicator's flip top section was cut and glue in place to simulate a closed communicator. The medical pouch was made using another tricorder and some left over leather and both the figure and equipment were painted and weathered using Vallejo, GW and artist paints.

Base - is from another old base I had lying around I'm just using it as a generic base till I decide what type of base I want for the figure.

Hi All

Thanks guys I had fun with this one and also I wanted to see how using tissue paper would look on a larger figure after I did it with my 3-3/4" Aquaman.

Absolutely beautiful work! That's genius how you used tissue paper to give his uniform some added dimension! Bones looks awesome!
