Well I take the figure of David - The Lost Boys - NECA and use the normal head, hands and feet. I add and re sculpted the hear, the chin and ears. After that I painted all the head. I removed the jacket under the long black topcoat. I filled with the epoxy putty the holes and cut the parts of the jacket molded on the topcoat. With a needle i make several poke to imitate the texture of the long topcoat! After this I painted the topcoat with acrylic matte black. I molded the gray scarf in the neck. With a thin plastic I cut and made the Iron cross holded in the Topcoat and the dog tag of the neck. With small wire I made the chain. After this I take and image of the Belt bucket from a pic and printed on thick photographic paper with my printer, I protect with transparent tape and paint the back and the sides with metallic paint and after this glue in the belt. I re sculpted the feet and with putty modeled the boots, the sole of the shoes was made with thick plastic sheet. After this I painted it. The Gretsch white guitar was made with several parts of plastic sheets cut and glued (see the pics) after this I add putty in several parts to complete it. The strings is nylon threads hanged first with tape and after this glued with acrylic instant glue on the thin peace of rubber. Well after this I painted all the guitar! At least I made the Billy Duffy Action Figure the partner of Ian Astbury figure of THE CULT!!! I hope you enjoy it!!! Bye!
