PostSubject: Kitbash: Russian Sailor   Fri Feb 28, 2014 11:52 am

Was watching X-Men First Class the other night and was inspired by the Cuban Missile Crisis sequence to 'bash this Russian Sailor circa 1960...



Apart from the AK47 the kitbash consists of all Hasbro/Palitoy kit. The helmet is from a GI Joe Classic Collection WWII Russian Infantry card, with the star added by me...



Sailor suit and boots are from the Action Man British Sailor basic figure and the belt is from the SOTC/SOTW Russian Infantryman set...



The shirt is also from the Action Man British Sailor basic figure, but with stripes painted on by me using fabric paints...



The Kalashnikov AK47 is from one of Cotswold's Hasbro styled range of weaponry that Hasbro and Palitoy never got round to making. Bought a few of these as I really liked them...



All modelled on a 40th fuzzhead. Smile

It was a real gift, that helmet coming in blue instead of green in that GI Joe Russian army set. On second thoughts though it seems a bit of a tight fit on a fuzzhead. Might transfer it over to a painted head guy.

Nice bash--don't think I've seen anyone else ever make a Soviet sailor before! I'd have to say top marks for originality!  cheers
