Thread: 1980's GI Joe - Destro!

    1980's GI Joe - Destro!

    For years, maybe over a decade, I have been wanting to make a Destro Mego....but no heads really fancied me...until a few weeks ago.
    Rachael made a great Trek Ruk figure. When I saw that head, as my mind usually does, I saw the final product immediately.
    I messaged her, and she graciously sent me the head to modify.

    My tools of choice:
    Milliput
    Toothpick
    Exacto Knife

    I love Milliput. When that stuff cures, it's amazing.

    I see another trifecta in my future. Destro, Cobra Commander, and Baroness.

    WIP:

    Very cool. It will be great to see them complete.

    wrapped up the head. Still on the fence with his eyes, but i put it in silicone tonight to make a mold. He was starting to get brittle in a couple thin spots.
    The Boy conjured up an on-the-fly collar to affix and finish off the mask.
    Did a test on one of the base-head-clones with the new Chrome paint I got in. Would make a good Silver Surfer for someone.

    Wow, I like the modifications you did, looks really nice.

    I hear the trick with the chrome paint is to let it cure for a week or so and then buff it. Is it hard to work with?

    the chrome paint is that acrylic stuff in a pen. It's pretty darn shiny ...almost too shiny. I am gonna have to black wash it first then highlight with the chrome or try a black wash after the fact...dunno yet, still experimenting.
    Cast a couple heads this am to see how they did and I was happy. Almost thinking about using one of my ZICA buff bodies from the Buck Rogers line...but I only have a few left - best better be right before I use one haha
