    Thanks Golem! The body twisting and tailoring arm swaps was a bit stressful, but it all worked out.

    Yes but it is rewarding when you get them in the right pose.

    One more conversion.

    I really don't like the original "back scratcher" position, so the sword arm was brought down, and I also extended the hacking arm, as the previous one was to much "kung fu" to me.

    I though it would be quite simple, but it took three pin to the sword arm alone.

    That's a really sweet idea, but I'd be terrified of the sword and arm not being strong enough to support all that weight!

    Raoul Spector made from the JSA Ryuken HRL fellow and the Tiger Soldier BSG arms and Jetpack.

    I like the Batou-style eyes, painted 'Red for Recording', as that fits in well with Raoul's fluff.

    Recently put together a fun Desperado. Wasn't in love with the model and wanted something a little different.
    I mounted him to Voronin's attack puppy and then magnetized his now-empty bike for my LE dismounted maverick.

    @Randomcallsign That is a neat idea, Antipode bikers. I might have to copy this.

    They're only slightly larger but the old 40k space wolf attack puppies(fenrisians) also make great mounts. That's what the shotgun toting desperado is riding. I'll see if I can find that model on my work bench tonight.

    @Randomcallsign Now there is an idea. I guess I'm off to buy a few Fenrisian Wolves for my USA bikers.

    You can also easily use the ones from the antipode box yeah they are bigger, but thats why Silhouettes exist.
    And nothing top´s Clint Eastwood on a rearing up antipode :P

    Also they allready have a saddle thingy on their back, so just add some stirrups and its good to go

    Despite the loss of motivation to follow the japaneese route after the split, after two years shelved, I finally moved forward with my O-Yoroi project. :slightly_smiling_face:

    @Ursun If I get the box then I'll go that route.

    @Barrin Glad to hear you still went through with it. That is quite the feat of glueing two different sets together.

    If only glueing... I had to cut the bottom part of original torso and work with putty to make it work with the open body. Even the head is not properly fitting to the original backfin. I might post some more pics later.

    As someone who has used putty myself I understand the work and detail that goes into putting a model together. Even though it is not perfect at least it is still intact.

    Hi infinity folk,

    This is my conversion for the Intruder combi+light flamethower.

    I used the following parts:
    Body: Intruder HMG
    Arms: alguacile hacker
    Combi: alguacile hacker
    Light flamethower: from the mobile brigada multi
    Pistol: morlock assault pistol (witch I cut the blade of)

    I bended the leg but cutting half way through the back of the knee and groin section. I also twisted the head to a more central position. The combi+light flamethower was a real surgery, usinf a razor thin saw blade :D
