Wild Weasel Custom

Recommended Posts

This figure is for a competition on JoeCustoms.com. Kinda an alternate take on WW. This figure is a representation of Wild Weasal the day he joined Cobra.

 

I figured Id go with a traditional flight suit and flight jacket and a kinda mean, worn look to his face. Enjoy!

I really like this take on him. Though I'm not sold on the head. Looks a bit to calm. The paint aps are top-notch.

 

Thanks. Ive got a whole bio to go with him for the contest thatll explain the 'good boy' look later on JC.

 

When I do joe customs, my main goals are the following:

 

1. 99% chip proof. what good is a joe custom you cant move?

2. to look as production-like as possible. i want my customs to be able to blend into a collection. youll never see brush strokes on my customs and i try to make sure you can see no evident of customizing on the completed figure.

 

typically i dont use washes/drybrushing on figures as you can see in that general hawk figure. on this WW and the croc master i did recently i did use inks and drybrushing since it was a contest. i decided to go a with a little more 'show' and technique to make the figure stand out. plus, on this ww i really wanted him to have a really worn leather flight jacket.

fantastic job. the jacket looks amazing. i'd like to see him with the helmet on though.

 

 

actually, the helmet doesnt fit.

 

i made this figure for a contest, but the helmet i bought for a dragonsky custom. id have to drill the helmet out more to make it fit, but since it already fits the dragonsky head i have, i dont wanna screw it up.
