Creator:littleT  
Date Added:February 1, 2014
Base Figure:Gung-Ho & Wild Bill

Completion Time:10.00 hours
Started with "the_angelforge" (from ebay) torso which is an awesome repro and upgrade from the original USMC Dress Blue Gung-Ho. Accurate to the original but not to the real USMC Dress Blue uniform tried to close the gap a little by adding the lower part of the Dress Blue top. From the top down it is EPOXY sculpt the arms are Wild-Bill's with EPOXY sculpt the rank from COBRA STICKERS the lower legs some G.I. Joe with, lots of EPOXY sculpt added. The head was made using 25th anniversary Gung-Ho's head minus the top portion adding EPOXY and a little sanding. The cover was made from the original Gung-Ho figure dremeled, EPOXY and refitted to the 25th anniversary head. The shoes are EPOXY, still working on the sword but don't think thats coming along any time soon. Looking at making it out of real metal like the knife from MY Flint Night Force.

Ha ha, that first pic made it look like he is at a gas station, pumping gas into that dudes motorbike. Anyhow, nice sculpting work, man.

Wow did'nt catch that I guess if I was ignorant of what a United States Marine guards I would of guess the same thing.

Yes, what a fool I am, not that it looks like he is at a gas pump, in front of a pet store/gas station (is that a giant bone? A special Military Marine Bone-store perhaps?). Exactly like it looks at Army/Marine/Naval bases. It's the custom we should be praising though, not the shoddy background, my mistake. Way to take a very, very, very slight/innocuous critique, chief.

Edit: You may not know this, but I thought I should take this oppurtunity to educate. Marines actually do more than just "guard" things. Think of "The Marines" as the ground force of the Navy, an amphibious assualt force, if you will. Though, they aren't always limited to the Navy, so don't misunderstand. Marines actually perform many, many Military operations. There are many sites out there that you can research for further information.

Thanks for clarifying your first post, thought you might of not appreciated the effort the Marine Corps has in the influence of the security of the United States.
