Ferret (Iron Grenadier D.E.M.O.N. Driver)

The original Ferret was the driver of the D.E.M.O.N. tank. There were three stations inside the vehicle, so two additional troopers had to be assigned to man all of the vehicle's systems. I decided to elaborate upon the character a bit and create specialty Ferrets (Driver, Crewman and Commander)for all three of the vehicle's stations. This is the Driver variant.

Parts: Head (RoC Deep Six), Helmet (Hunter Artworks), Entire Body (25th Anniversary Battle Armor Cobra Commander).

Supplies: X-acto knife, paintbrushes, Testors paints and Testors Dull-Cote.

Reference: Photos of the vintage Ferret figure. Also refer to the reference section in the post for Voltar.

The original head was replaced with one that looked more like a guy under a helmet, in my opinion. The belt was modified with the X-acto knife, removing the holster and shaving away the Cobra insignia on the belt buckle. Once that was done, the rest of this was just painting. I tried to stay faithful to the color scheme of the original figure as much as possible. Once finished, he was given a light application of Testors Dull-Cote.
