A few of you may have seen my Timeless MOA Condition study. The most blazing part of it was his hands.

I got some HobbyCrash Geyper hands from Cotswold, and a few other bits. Very Happy

Let's compare:

Pretty good, minor differences, but they look like they'll fit very well. Now, on to the operation.


Initially, the plan was to replace the hands and the pegs, but I soon discovered that the pegs don't come out.

Undeterred, I decided to get the hands off (which were held on by a rivet), so I warmed them up, and prized them over the mushroomed ends of the rivets.

Then I used pliers, and smashed the living daylights out of one of the rivet ends, so I could pull them straight through the holes.

I lucked out, the Geyper hands fit right on the pegs, but as of right now, I have no means of making them more permanent.

See how they just rest on the pegs at the moment.

Decked out, with his new medals. The Silver Star, for 12 or 13 years of active duty, and The Purple Heart, awarded for his hand injuries, sustained in the line of play.

The first issued Action Man grippers had the same problem with fingers breaking off, so Palitoy issued version 2 on later releases of Action man, I think they made the fingers slightly thicker and strengthened the rubber/vinyl more. Nice guide Cool
