This was another very simple custom. The base figure was not really modified in any significant way. I popped off the head and replaced it with the new one. I repainted the trousers and cover to match the uniform I painted on my Leatherneck figure. The mustache was repainted dark brown. The vest was added and I trimmed off the holstered pistol, replacing it with a SAW pouch from a bbi Elite Force Marine figure. I also cut a rectangular shaped slot in the back of the vest, so that the machete could be easily slid into the vest. It was positioned so that he could reach over his shoulder and pull it out, if needed. I gave him a modular M4 from Marauder, Inc. The appropriate parts of the weapon were painted gunmetal and flat black. Finally, the entire figure was given a light coating of Testors Dull-Cote.
