    Like most of my projects, this one came about on a whim. Finally got a G1 Sixshot cheap after years of keeping an eye out on and off for one and fell in love with the figure as soon as I had it in hand. Shortly after I saw a wolf fanmode for Springer, which I happen to have an extra of, and things escalated from there. My only real regret is no ball joint on the wolf's neck, but the only good way I could come up with required parts forming, which I avoid unless necessary. Comments and critiques are welcome. Thanks.

    I'd say it needs just a bit more work and better color matching. I think you could really be on to something if you modded just a bit more...

    Paint looks a little too thick and splotchy, but this is a great custom nonetheless.

    Thanks for the comments guys. I've started toying around with some ideas to get a better wolf head on there should a decent-looking head show up at some point in the future. This was just kind of a simple spur of the moment thing with minimal mods. I'm also considering repainting the green. I decided from the get-go I didn't want teal, and was happy with the color I had until I put it all back together and beside the original. I'm not so sure now. May get a rework after I get to some other projects that I've had waiting pretty much forever.
