I don´t like what medicom did with old snake, he is just to pale and there are better custom old snakes out there.

So I bought mgs snake from evilbay and gave him a new body and hands (similar to the medicom old snake hands, bedable things) and a new paint on the armor.
The straps from takara Batman and his original usp, a punisher gun on his boots, a miami vice mac 10 and punisher´s rifle.

Now the head was a great fun, I never knew painting 12 " heads is so much easier than normal heads.
Various mixed layers of dry brushed skin colour and done, same for the hair and bandana. The original was gone so I gave him a new one out of leather and it is held in place with glue so it still has some articulation.

Now old snake is old and solid snake from mgs2 was still younger and I guess there must have been some days where he was just midlife crisis snake in his late 40ies and 50ies.
Of course he must have some beard.
