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

This is the last of my Ferrets. As I explained in the posts for the first two, I decided to elaborate upon the character a bit and create specialty Ferrets (Driver, Crewman and Commander) for all three of the D.E.M.O.N.'s crew stations. This is the Commander variant. While most D.E.M.O.N.'s would likely be commanded by a Sergeant, this figure happens to be the unit's Commanding Officer. He'd be the highest ranking member of the company or platoon and his armor is the most elaborate. Like most other IG Officers, his armor features a lot of purple in place of the traditional enlisted man's red.

Parts: Head (ARAH Ferret), 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 the Ferret head, which was hollowed out enough to fit the neck post correctly. 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 modeled this one after the first Ferret I made, except that I substituted purple for the red used on the driver. Once finished, he was given a light application of Testors Dull-Cote.
