Hello,always wanted to make him especially reading him in the pages of x men,with one of the coolest armor back in the days,my buddy asked me if i could somehow make him near comic accurate i said il try..
made from a full head sculpt sanded over the factory head then sculpt the full head also made some sculpting on the upper body as well,the lines on the arms and legs were carved so retaining factory muscle formations and wont give the figure unwanted weight.the shoulder pads were round plastics,reshaped and attached(by drilling)on the shoulders, hard to explain it though,modded to give the arms normal articulations.
the 'thing' at the back which i think is an oxygen reserve(saw him before how he use it,its purpose is to give him oxygen in the very toxic battlefields)is from a gundam part modded,also attached black rubber cables on it (drilled and hot glued)..
for the paint apps it was requested to have that semi battle damaged look like subtle chip paints and all that,sorta reasonable and realistic that the armor is a battle expose one indeed and hes a patriot/soldier to start with..
gun was modified and i gave it weathering as well
