He does indeed! I am very happy with the result, but yeah, he needs an M32 to broaden his shoulders a bit bounce bounce

Thanks Dal. But I have the tremor problem with my left hand, which would be the one I paint with (I'm left handed) so maybe if I used the small
finger to make it steady? My first attempt will be doing the hair on a vintage Joe I picked up. I don't think that will be a problem. My main concern
are the tiny details, like the eyes. I also have a Bruce Willis head molded in white that I was planning on doing a Joe Colton figure from the Joe movie.

Can you tell me the name of the color for flesh tones from Citadel? I will need that for both heads. Is the white color called bone white? I also need
to get it along with some red to repaint the scar.

Ah man, too many projects and too little time. In the last month or so I was able to get four vintage Joe bodies. Each need a little, or a bit of work.
And I already had some figure projects to do. I think I'm biting off more than I can chew. lol!

I got a chart for Action Man hair colors from a member at The Trenches, which has the new color names.

I'm wondering if I should use Cadian Fleshtone or Kislev Flesh for a Joe face? I've heard the color out of
the bottle is darker than it is once it dries. Although that is with a different brand. Liquitex seems to be
the brand mostly used here.

But I can get Citadel paints at Amazon.

I usually use Cadian, but I usually add a little white to lighten it hope it helps?

Thanks Dal!

I've never used acrylic paint, it will be interesting to see if I'm successful or not.

It's great to use, remember to have a small pot of water to dip he brush first, then into the paint, will help to water it down a bit. It does give really nice results cheers

Thanks Dal,

But what is the best way to mix colors? It's my understanding that red and white is mixed to
make the color for the scar on the cheek.

For mixing colours I usually use a small tub and dad blobs of paint into it then mix it together to get the colour I want. As for the scar colour, I think your on the right lines but it is an ongoing experiment until you get the right colour? I have never repainted the scar, so I'm afraid, I don't know?

That sure is a classic oldie from you Dal. It’s really good to see this picture being shared once again.

Impressive ‘Nam type scene! Very nicely posed. I can almost feel the heat and humidity of that jungle setting.

Okay, so as a few folks who know who pop into chat, Commander Rivers has recently been upgraded onto a TBL M33 body. There were a couple of reasons for this, 1) His old custom body was becoming extremely loose, and 2) having him on a TBL, makes his articulation so much better for comics.
Fear not, vintage fans, Jake has a mint EE Talker body which lives inside his Talking commander AM box Very Happy . Here are a few black and white pics of Jake on his new body.

These pics look great in monochrome! Dramatic and impressive!

Good to know that Jake can be "restored" to original condition if ever there is a need to do so. This looks like a a great way to enjoy your figs in the "modern era" while preserving the potential value as a collectable vintage piece.

Thanks Dave! the new body is so much better for movement. Yeah, he has his vintage body if ever the occasion arises fr him to need it. Though In truth I doubt he will Laughing .
It was great fun to be able to upgrade Jake and give him the body, I think he deserved bounce bounce
