    Super simple custom of Deathcobra to go along with the Platinum CW Liokaiser set. Got the KO CBB CW Green Alpha Bravo from sirtoys.com and the Naja Gunship head by Steam Shield's Bot Foundry on shapeways.com, a little Tamiya X-28 Park Green acrylic paint (a pretty good match with the body color), silver for his face, yellow for the accents, semi gloss black for his hands and red for his eyes and that was it! The head was designed for the CW figure's ball joint but the KO toy itself uses a mushroom peg (also had to pry apart the Alpha Bravo head along the seam), so if you are trying this you might want to modify the peg so that it fits better, but for me it stays on good enough, i do remove the head for transformation but you could dremel out the section of the tail to store the head better.

    The whole team (with my custom Jallguar from a couple of years ago)

    Nice! There's a Mil-24 cockpit for this figure as well, didn't know if you were aware of it.

    Thanks for the heads up! I see he also has a 5 rotor blade kit as well. Maybe I'll add them to my next shapeways order.

    I have the oversized Blades from Sirtoys, and have been tempted to get the kit, just 'cause I love the Hind. Haven't bit the bullet yet though. Keep up the good work.

    Excellent. Literally working with the same mold and same head now for the same guy lol. Nice seeing it done. Thinking Slitherfang for Cobrabreast. Excellent work. That head prying was a pain though, wasn't it? I "built" the mushroom into a balljoint with Bondic. I had hoped the head would be fine on the mushroom owg, like you say yours is, but mine was too loose.

    Excellent!!!!!

    I am also working on the Deathcobra.
    I believe that everyone will choose Alpha Bravo mold for Deathcobra since it's amazing match to the character image.

    If your Deathcobra head is from Shapeaway??
