Some more Re-paints I've been playing with.
First up another red head with slightly better brows in a vintage Gilbert Toys Man from UNCLE
jacket (it's getting crispier by the day!!)

60's Adventurer.

cheers cheers cheers Not only majorly impressed with the actual paint work, but how you've got an EE to look so cool (ie NOT all googly-eyed) is beyond me!


Fantastico!

Cheers! Thanks for all the feedback, I'm just glad you like em'! Very Happy I'll post some more piccies soon.
Any one tempted to attempt one? It's very rewarding to fix up battered figures....and these heads were pretty
messed up.
One quick question though, where can I source the screws to hold together an clamshell talker body?
I've tried a few, none of any use, the red haired figure with the Dragon arm's body is just taped together.
Any thoughts? I don't want to use a glue.

Great looking mods fella, love the grey haired guy! I'm going to attempt one seeing as you started it.

On the screws, drop me a PM, I'm out on the road all week but pretty sure I've got some screws and the arm connection if you need some of those, I'll look on Monday for you.

Blinding, I'll do just that.
If you want to match the colour on the grey haired chap I used a revell acrylic called earth brown. The red haired guy's paint is Squig Orange from Games Workshop.
I cant wait to see your version Very Happy

If you had of told me that you were going to do that to the EE heads before I saw the pictures I would have said "no way that will look #hit". But to my suprise they look fantastic. Great job and nice choice of colours. They have come up really well.

Thanks Dan, very kind. I'm about to embark on turning one of Taff's EE heads into a Man of Asia based on your original version so keep em' peeled for that. It's going to take a bit of graft but I feel confident I'll pull it off.
Thanks all for the feedback everyone, it does mean alot.
Can't wait to see Sgt Elias versions......get em' done!! Very Happy

....now back to the sanding, that flock won't come off by itself...it's not 40th! Very Happy Very Happy

I am definitely going to attempt a refurb like one of these - they look amazing - excellent work! A few questions though - do you have to use grey primer or can it be white? Do you re-paint the eyes too on the BP figures or do you cover the eyes up when you put the primer on, so they stay as they were? any other tips on how to make them look as good as yours? Very Happy
