Hello. I really wanted an awesome 80's style Wolverine. The aoa sabertooth recipe really spoke to me, especially after checking out some old Art Adams drawings of Wolverine. I gave the sabes body the usual treatment with the dremmel tool then sculpted over the holes and gaps. I removed the legs and shortened them also with the dremmel. The costume details including the veins and boot details were all sculpted with magic-sculpt. The claws are cut from a styrene sheet, and the head is just a ML brown suit wolverine head repainted. I used a few different shades of brown on his costume, and a flat flesh on the skin. The claws were painted with chrome silver. I hope you like my interpretation of this character and recipe. Please feel free to comment and thanks for looking!

Thanks man! I just cut them out of some styrene sheet, painted 'em, and used the sculpt instead of glue to adhere them. Thanks for the comment!

Yeah, my most fav Wolverine version too! 80's rock and this costume is the best to me! I can't believe it what people can do with some sculpt (doing a new figure over a so different figure it looks a real art and you're a great artist!). I like a lot everything, the colors, the shading, the boots, the claws, you sculpted even the veins!! Excellent work Master! As always!
