    Default New Custom Belloqs..

    OK.. so there is already a thread dedicated to the Belloq figure.. mine came in about an hour ago.. and I don't know what the fuss was about.. this figure is great and has tons of potential... The tie is short and the thread knot was lame.. but ten minutes of scissors, pliers and superglue.. bingo.. tie is fixed.. better knot and length is good now.. obviously still needs to be refined.. but again.. I have been working on this figure for all of ten minutes so far..


    Then I threw on a khaki shirt I had in the scrap box ( won't be using this exact shirt for my project as it does not have epaulettes ) but it gives me the idea of what this figure can look like later.. also dug up a safari pith helmet from the parts bin...



    Anyway.. point being.. I thought a new thread was warranted for custom projects without all of the " I cancelled my order" etc etc posting.... I'm curious to see the projects people have ongoing with this figure.. I plan on ultimately doing three customs, one of belloq sitting in the cairo cafe.. ( scratch building his hookah is gonna be interesting), one dig site Belloq.. and a jungle gear Belloq...

    Would have loved to see some pics of your figure before you fixed it...but the changes look great!



    Anyway, here's my now infamous Tanis Dig Site Belloq:

    Mfisher, you'll have to show us how you fixed the tie! I can see that you probably folded it over to make it skinnier, but how did you manage to make it longer??

    Looks great! Glad to hear you're not dissatisfied with it.

    Yeah Mfisher, I'd rather hear positive things too, and I love customs, so it'll be fun watching your projects come together. Please, more photos as you progress, when you can. Thanks a bunch. :chew
    I can't wait for my Belloq. I'm not sure but he may be coming Monday.

    The tie was easy.. I just snipped the thread that was at the top, removed the elastic and the tie was much longer due to being folded nearly in half... I then cut one short portion off to fold into somewhat of a triangle for the top part.. then folded the edges of the longer portion so that it became narrower towards the top.. adhered it all together with the glue.. it is now tacked in place with hotglue and looks much MUCH better than the top picture I posted.. need to do a few more pics.. but I also have to re-sew the coat buttons and make button holes for the coat too...

    here's another shot of the tie done... I have already cut off all of the small white plastic ball "shirt buttons" as well as cut off the metal snaps for the shirt, pants and coat.. I tac all of the clothing in place with a hot glue gun so those big clunky metal snaps do not show... gives the clothes a slimmer profile..


    what I am considering.. and I am just timid right now.. is using the dremel and grinding down some of the hair over the left ear so I can ^^^^ his hat over his left ear a little deeper... just scared to screw up his noggin.. although if I do I will just use the head on the jungle gear belloq and slap a pith helmet over the messed up hair !

    A simple but effective alteration mate well done and the jungle Belloq looks great already.

    I'm putting together my Safari Belloq this weekend and we'll be having a repaint done on the head soon.

    For those doing a safari Belloq.. go look for the pants that came on the Did brand "John Coleman figure.. they are the perfect match for the screen used pants.. British Jodphers with the correct pocket on the rear... Did also put out a good shirt with epaulettes on their WW2 german Rommel figure.. I am going to get those, bleach them out and re-dye them to match up... will take a while to get the parts in and get it going... the pith helmet will take a lot of work though.. best one I found was off of a Twisting Toys brand Italian figure...
