    after scrawl was kind enough to remind me (in the review thread) how good this face could look courtesy of TJ Duckett's creative photo as seen here:
    I decided I liked it enough to give it a shot.

    These are all the parts of the head:

    The face is glued to the clear red plastic block and the jaw inserts from the back of the face (almost broke mine thinking it was nubs in pockets!):

    I used some model car body putty to fill the top and a good ole razor blade to shave down the "teeth". Then a quick paint job with some testors silver and a bit of orange to the eyes for effect.

    Results: AWESOME (if I may say so myself ;) )

    Awsome job, gonna try this myself I think!

    One slight suggestion though, would it maybe look better if you shade the sides of the jaw piece dark gray/black instead of silver? It might look diifferent in person, but from the photos it kind of looks like his mouth is narrowed or he's got things in his cheeks when the jaw's down.
