I'm too tired to try and figure out what parts you've used right now but that is some fine work on ole Snake Head!

 

I think what really does it for me is the fact that the helmet is flaired just right around the edges-- not over done like the DTC Wave 3 Cobra Troopers and not enormous like the DTC Major Bludd.

 

Great work!

this is exactly what new-sculpt stuff should be like.

 

ditto

 

it's really impressive, i always felt bad about my CC not having the stripe on his helmet when i was a kid

Thanks guys for all your comments! I thought my wife was going to kill me before I finished this one. I started it in late December and went through so many parts configurations, paint color selections, etc. I'm really glad to be finished. :D

 

I've racked my brain and finally got the parts I used:

Head: Beach Head base (heavily modified with Epoxy Putty)

Torso: Destro v11 (sanded and modified the collar)

Upper Arms: Cobra Commander v19 (did a little sanding)

Lower Arms: Destro v11

Waist: Cobra Commander v22 (Comic Pack #9)

Upper Legs: Zartan v4

Lower Legs: Cobra Commander v19

Helmet: Major Bludd v6 (DTC, did a little sanding)

Cobra Insignia is from ReproLabels.com

In time, I must say that this custom turned out great! The paint choices were perfect to me and the mods are spot on.

what brand blue did you use for CC?

 

I looked and looked for the "right" color to use on him, I'd bought several of the Tamiya paints, but the color just wasn't it. I looked at Model Masters paint as well, with no luck either. So don't laugh too hard, but I ended up using Folk Art's Periwinkle acrylic paint. It took me quite awhile to paint him using it. I had to paint very thin coats.
