Hey Guys,

Marvel Select Repaint & Mod

Well I am on a roll with my Avengers stuff , and even though this is Caps from the first movie ,I wanted a movie Caps in my line up I'm collecting but have to wait for the Avengers Cap to come out .I have noticed that all of the First Avenger Caps the suit is not scuplted accuratley. I was unable to do any re-sculpting in fear of ruining the figure. But decided instead all he needs is a repaint , custom made belt strap , and sculpted chin strap. This repaint is version number 3, it took a while to get it right when it clicked that the suit is actually a light blue and the helmet a dark blue. All paints used were citadel paints to give a nice smooth finish followed by washes to make him look dirty.The shield was sprayed with gloss to make it as shiny as possible. I will be doing the shield in Chromed colours soon. I also think that he looks better now with the neck painted skin rather than blue.

The result is an awesome looking figure and the Marvel Select factory version was cool but not quite there. So this is as good as i can get him for now,

Well hope you guys like this one, please let me know what you think

Cheers

MIKE

I noticed the same thing about the chin strap not being included on the sculpt too, but I guess that has to do with Diamond Select having access to only concept images provided by the movie producers during the early production stages of the figure. I gotta give it to you bro you've done an awesome job on this figure! I never really cared for the head sculpt on this guy, and I don't know if it's the chin strap, paints or maybe both that made this guy look so much better! I might give this a whirl myself, and fingers crossed that MS makes the Avengers movie version next year!
