I have had this plan to swap out the Lion rock bodies on my WWII guys. I am using the Neo-Madelman 6" body because frankly it rules. Also fits and looks perfect:
This was the first guy I tried it on. I was very happy with the results. However, a couple nights ago I took him of the shelf to find that somehow the color from his rifle had stained his hands. Pretty badly I might add.
It doesn't look so bad in this picture, but it is a deep indigo color, like an ink stain. The madelman was brand new, fresh off the card, as was the Lion Rock guy. What could have possibly caused this? Keep in mind he has been displayed holding his rifle for only about a month. Is there a way I can fix it? I'll probably just clear coat the rifles as I planned on repainting them anyways, but can the hands be saved?
