Fighting Soldiers from the Sky...

Postby Wowboy on Thu Apr 12, 2007 5:06 pm

...Fearless Men Who Jump and Die,
Men Who Mean, Just What They Say,
The Brave Men of The Green Beret.


Needless to say, this custom is inspired from the old John Wayne movie, "The Green Berets" I used the BBI head that resembled John Wayne, and tried to paint a decent likeness. It's not perfect, but Its a good enough homage for my collection.

Now I just need a code name to integrate him into my Joeverse...





Parts Used:
Head, Beret - BBI
Torso, Waist - Dart
Arms - Duke
Legs - Crosshair
Rifle - Comic Pack M-16

Aside from the head looking a little small, it's great! The paint looks fantastic. I am stuck on a name, since Duke is already taken.

Also, great work on the torso.

That looks great...I can see a likeness, and I'm not a huge John Wayne fan! lol..yeah, too bad Duke's taken...Would one of THE Duke's character names work?
His mind is the ultimate weapon...

Knowing is half the battle!

It's all fun and games until someone loses an eternity.
