Ok, this is my first stab at an original. It's a fusion of a CI Boys mini destroyer and a WWII tank. I've always liked alternate history machinery so I thought it would be cool to turn the "bucket" of the mini destroyer into a WWII era army helmet. From there I just cut the turret and some of the top off of a small tank and sunk it into the bucket. The hardest part was probably dremeling through the diecast hull of the tank. I took my time though and I think it came out clean. I also had to insert rods into the hull to attach the legs. They can move at the hips, knees, and ankles. Painting was easy enough; primed him, sprayed him green, drybrushed sand.

The worst part of making this guy was painting the spade on his helmet. Not because painting it was hard, but because in my attempt to open the bottle of white paint, I broke the bottle twisting the cap off and spilled it all over myself and my workspace...ruining my beloved Ramones T-shirt. Sucked.

Thanks for the comment! I'm glad you like the figure but I still think he needs a cooler name. I was thinking either HELLmet or ED-2069. However, I'm open to suggestions...

I like this one!! it makes me think that if they were to put out a megaman live action that this is what those little dudes(sorry can't remember their names) that hide and shoot would look like if they were going for a realistic look. very original and very nice good job on it!
