    Thought Hound was missing something, mainly his portly belly, which gave him a lot of character.
    He was a kick your teeth in gruff buster, with a gritty charm & in the trenches feel.
    While I couldn't give him all that, I made something to have a bit of the look.
    My sewing skills suck but I did my best.
    The smaller of the 2 is the prototype, made from dribs and drabs, which I wasn't happy with.
    I went at it again full tilt.
    Made from a camo bandana and mosquito net.
    The torch & grenades are also hand made from various bits of plastic sprue & projectile parts, melted, pressed, and scored.
    Even got a bit of grip tape on the torch.
    The dog tags are cut from a metal candy tin.
    Hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it.

    That's a kickin idea. Love it. I'm thinking about using an ammo belt from a '90's 12inch G.I. Joe. Maybe the G.I.Joe grenades will be in decent scale too.

    Aw man that looks great! Knitting work is actually very impressive. It goes with the look. I know some people like that the toy hound is leaner than his on screen model. But if you ask me, that belly is what made hound! I plan on putting together a belly out of plates of styrene that attaches on the shoulders. This guy needs a belly.
