Hi All , Hope your Good .

     Being a huge NAM fan I have toyed with kit bashing the characters from the movie Full Metal Jacket for years . If you not seen it , it`s well worth watching , full of violence and bad language though , so be warned . Very Happy  It is quite the task finding head sculpts for these characters . I have " Animal Mother " in the making , I hope to make "Rafter man " and " Cowboy " , but not sourced suitable sculpts for them yet .

    The main character from FMJ is " Joker " , he basically tells the story . A marine correspondent . Here is a break down of the work that went into " Joker ".

   Had to put plastic lenses into the glasses , bit of a nightmare trying not to get glue on the lens , not perfect but good as I could get . Scratch made peace button , made from a nail head . Art work to the helmet using a fine pen , scratch work C- ration toilet paper in helmet band which was made from push bike inner tube . Re- vamped 21st ammo bandolier , and "H " harness . Sports taped and Painted plastic DML pouches , added new more convincing strap to M.16 . Printed off map of Vietnam , re - eyed and laced DML Jungle boots , scratch made note book . 3D printed vintage Nikon F ( cost a fortune )  Very Happy , had these a while , painted and added leather look strap , it`s not the actual Nikon Joker carries , though Rafter man does . Most other stuff off the shelf so to speak . Well here he comes , hope you like .

Amazingly detailed work! Looks like a museum quality replica!

You made the miniature notebook? Impressive work on such a tiny scale!

Excellent figure! A lot of work, and a lot of time, but I'm sure, as it began to come together, it was a lot of fun, too!

So kind thank you . It was a pleasure putting him together , a few frustrating times but was pleased with him when finished .

Thanks Daryl , the cover for the note book was cut too size from a Tea bag box , just for the colour and that it was thin card . Cut thin paper to size ...might of been cigarette papers ? ... Then I drilled small set of holes through the top with a pin vice , and threaded fuse wire through the holes , and rounded them with a cocktail stick as I went along , to make the metal binder at the top . I hope that made sense . Very Happy

It does make sense, but it sounds like a lot of work!
