Ok back on-line! several weeks gone, was busy relocating to our new house after 3 years of renting in an apartment!
This 1/6 scale figure kitbash is inspired from the Call of Duty Modern Warfare video game, I noticed the SAS unit got some kick ass outfit and gear especially those hooded gas mask style, really freaky! I make use of what’s available in my loose items and heres what i ended having:
British Parka – from Dragon DML – this is similar to Hot Toys on their British figure but no weathering and cloth material is softer and not too thick. the hood is great since it can cover the headsculpt including the helmet ; British DPM pants – from Hot Toys. They say the DPM pattern on the Hot Toys is not right, which I cannot verify since im not familiar with British uniforms.
Body – Soldier Story S2 body with Brad Pit look-alike headsculpt ; Sidearm – M9 pistol with black leg holster from Soldier Story ; Take note i put a wire along the rim of the Parka hood rim to make it manageable around the mask and helmet.
Helmet – can’t identify the style but this is from Hot Toys ; Military vest – from Dragon DML. I think this was from their SWAT or maybe a BBI brand can’t be sure. Some of the older gears are still ok so don’t throw away keep it.
Weapon – G-36 rifle. I purchased the G-36 rifle set, the maker is unknown, they say ACE but can’t confirm it. They look generic but quality and material is ok. no rifle sling included in the set. The set consist of 3 CQB type and 2 Sniper type (as shown above), 2 grenade launcher equiped type, and 1 SAW type. 8 variety of G-36 total.
The G-36’s have folding stock option except for the sniper types.
Gask mask bag / Leg pouch – Large black keg pouch from Soldier Story; Boots – Danner boots from Soldier Story ; Kneepads – from soldier story ; Gask Mask – SF-10 Gas Mask from Very Hot Toys ; Gloves – Mechanix gloves on bendy hands from Soldier Story ; Balaclava from Dragon DML.
The Soldier Story S2 body works well in different poses. Having small headsculpts suited well for the Gas Mask – Helmet – Hood set up. The size, shape, proportions of the body usually dictates what kind of kitbash I can make and most of the time (for me) the headsculpt is the biggest factor in the decision.
