Working on another Hybrid BBI G3/VAM. Sanded down a VAM head to a nice shiny Bald.

Going to make the 40th Annic Gripping Hands fit the BBI body somehow.

All kit is from the DAM Toys UNIVERSAL SOLDIER figures.

Need do a slight mod to the ear piece to fit the VAM ear better. Then will try the Washer trick to a BBI neck

Still need to purchase the wrist Device that tells them TEMP is up, M92F & Desert Eagle Pistols and of course the Mp5-K with Designator fitted.

As for this UNISOLS designation, seems very fitting GR-66. Nice 50th Birthday custom bash

Thanks RT & BB.

Got to say the drmelling of the VAM head was intense, as close to breaking the layer but thankfully didnt LOL

Wanted to makea custom UNISOL and then dawned on me what a fitting way to have a New Custom UNISOL and celebrate AMs 50th Birthday.

Um..any chance of more info on how you did the head ??

I'm attempting a Predator team bash and I can't seem to source a good bald head for Bill Duke. So I'm thinking maybe I could try your method.

@Dal, thanks mate and Yeah awesome kit indeed from DAM (as always). This should be interesting lol

@RT Good old trusty Dremel and taking my time. Once fuzz shaved off, then the molded hair, just need be careful not to go to hard and make a hole. Came close but thankfully didnt.
Just keep stopping and letting areas cool whilst tackle another area. Once all sanded, then a polish for that Bald shine we emitte Very Happy

Very nice. I'll look forward to seeing this done.
I loved the movie in it's day. It was a clever idea.
