    Noyce job. The paint really brings out the details on this mold. What gun is that revolver pistol? Reminds me of Vash the Stampede's weapon from Trigun.

    Thanks guys!

    I had to remove the original hands and insert a ball joint socket in the forearm cavity. It's just lodged in there, but it's pretty secure. Nothing is glued, so I can easily use the old fists again.

    Thanks man. The pistols come from this Kotobukiya set: M.S.G Weapon Unit 24 Handgun (Parts) Kotobukiya No.24|Weapon Unit MW24

    Looks great mate. How did you get the sheaths for the swords to stick to his back?

    What sockets did you use for the hands? And which hands are they specifically? Look like HGUC EFSF.

    He's so much better than Hasbro's to begin with, but bringing the silver down the arms further like you did really makes a great difference. I don't think my Sharpie skill are clean enough since the detail there is so fine and complicated to color around.

    All I've done to mine is pop off the tanks and smokestack and chrome them. Nice little touch though, and they come off really easily.
