    Default Re: Custom Belloq figures..

    OK.. took a grinder bit on the dremel to Belloq's hair to give his hat the appropriate tilt.. then yesterday I got brave and started grinding away at that huge jaw... worked great.. after fine sanding it down afterwards to smooth it out I think this looks MUCH more like Paul Freeman... just gotta paint it now... plus that pith helmet needs some serious work to look accurate..

    By the way.. for those curious.. the jungle outfit is comprised of:
    Did John Coleman pants
    Did Erwin Rommel shirt soaked in diluted bleach to match the color of the pants
    Newline Japanese officer's boots
    Belt by Battlegear toys
    Still lacks a holster (which I will just make) and a wristwatch

    That looks FANTASTIC Mike!Wow, changing the jaw REALLY makes a huge difference. The Belloq sculpt suffered from the same problem as the 1/6 Legolas...too much JAW! A little grinding and sanding...HUGE improvement.

    Now, how do I get a Belloq head to look like that (Get a dremel I guess)

    Oh, and what's the recipe for your 'safari' belloq outfit? That looks pretty cool too!

    Just stripped the head down with acetone to remove the factory paint... it is always amazing ow thick factory paint is and how once removed the clarity of the detail around the eyes is just great... also you can really get a good look at the perfect likeness this sculpt has now that the jaw is thinned out.. they nailed the likeness around the eyes nose area...

    I'm going back and forth on which project I want to dive into right now... jungle Belloq or Katanga.. ( he has been on my desk at 90% done FOREVER..) but i think Jungle Belloq is going to go first... i want to do some kind of small scene after he gets back to his camp WITH the idol... kind of a Belloq kicking back and gloating over his victory

    That looks really good. Repainting the eyes and if it had a more squinted look would have gone a long way.
