So here is the blonde chap after a bit of treatment.

I used to go in a lot for Dragon/BBi uniform bashes but prefer the more basic uniforms nowadays. This lot I found bagged up at the back of the loft on a recent trip up there, I seem to remember it was on a 40th blue pant figure many moons ago.

Lovely job Brian have you tried freezing the other head sometimes that can cause the superglue to crack.

Good tip Andy, never tried that before. Tbh not that impressed with the anti super glue I have bought, but will try again. The BP figure is ok though, just fine tuning him.

Change of plan re work so had chance to look at some lots that arrived yesterday;



That should keep me busy for a while!

Another small lot that arrived


This figure is in nice condition with a good head and face



Been lucky so far, just waiting for the postie to bring some more!

These just dropped through the door



Nicely complete and in need of attention.



But what is this? Unusually articulated for a Knock off.

nice additions Brian !

Your k/o figure looks a lot like my smiley joe (he has the same body mined used to have before his upgrade). I think he is an action mike, or something?? If you wish to upgrade him to a nice 64 vam body, pull his head out of his body and slice off the lower attachment, heat in warm water on push onto vam neck post !  cheers , Job done  Very Happy

ps - he would great flocked too  bounce bounce bounce

Very happy with these two that arrived today. Nice tight elastic and good all round condition. Just need to swop the arms round on the hard hand figure and give the faces a good clean.
