Jungle Ops Gung-Ho

Post by Dark Perceptor on Mon Nov 16, 2015 10:49 am

Time to add more members to my Jungle Operations Team... next in the queue was Gung-Ho, an obvious choice to me for many reasons. This custom was fairly straight forward... really just wanted to update his v1 look (my favorite) and borrowed a little from his early Marvel appearances. The challenge here was muting the tattoo (which was in really nice shape) without distorting it. I applied several washes to dirty the entire figure up, and the results are a little better than the camera could capture. Regardless, I'm happy with the turn out and it's on to the next piece. Thanks for looking! Smile









Recipe:

Head: Gung-Ho v1
Arms: Gung-Ho v2
Torso: Gung-Ho v1
Waist: Hardball
Legs: Crankstart

Love the muted colors, actually one of the best Gung-Hos I've ever seen.

Love the camo on Gung-Ho. Nice parts selection and super painting.

It's amazing how much those v2 arms bulk up the v1 torso! This is a recipe to remember.

absolutely! i'm working on a roadblock custom that's essentially the same upgrade... should hopefully balance out that already-bulky torso, heh.

Very nice custom. I just finished a similar Gung-Ho myself, putting him in more military colours really helps the figure work.
