    Gene Autry America's Favorite Singing Cowboy

    The head sculpt and painting by Dave McCormick, I believe it's supposed to be Gene Roddenberry
    but I thought it also looked a bit like Gene Autry, and thought it would be a nice addition to my custom
    western collection.

    Type 2 mego body

    CTVT shirt-pants-guitar

    Doc Mego, gunbelt-six shooter-gloves and boots

    White scarf was from a t-shirt I cut in strips and tied

    The white hat came from ebay, the material was a softer texture and fit nicely on the head,
    and doesn't remove the paint from the hair when taken off.

    The box is from the Toyroom.

    Looks good. Minor correction... DaveMc didn't sculpt the head. It was Capt Dunsel.
    Fresh, not from concentrate.

    Thanks for the info on the head sculpt, I had picked it up from Dave since he had it pictured on his site at the time
    I just assumed it came from him, so I appreciate the shout out to Capt Dunsel, I think Dave did have it stated it was
    a Dunsel sculpt along with a few others, now that memory serves me.

    Don't think I've ever seen an autry custom done,nice work.

    Very nice! So glad to see some of the classics getting some custom love. Very cool.
    It's not how hard you hit, but how hard you can be hit and still move forward.

    Very good looking figure and box. That was a great choice for the head.
