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

This is the second of my Ferrets. As I explained in the post for the first one, 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 Crewman variant. He'd be the lowest ranking member of the team and his armor is the least elaborate. If one team member were needed to get out of the vehicle and take care of a dirty task, it would be this guy.

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. Like the first Ferret I made, I tried to stay faithful to the color scheme of the original figure as much as possible. But this one felt kind of odd in the respect that the first one came to me naturally and this one I tried deliberately to make him less flashy. Once finished, he was given a light application of Testors Dull-Cote.
