Gold Monkey Custom Action Figures

TOTGM is a series that I remember very fondly, in fact I recently bought a set of episodes off ebay. It is as good as I remember.

One hobby I have is making custom action figures. I was looking at a spare Indiana Jones figure I had and wondering what to do with it. I figured with just a little bit of modification, the jacket would turn quite nicely into the A2 style. A full repaint later, I printed off a blood chit on inkjet treated silk and glued it onto the back of the jacket. Jack is a repainted Schleich pvc figurine with an eyepatch added

Revised pics

I am thinking about getting the Playmobil seaplane and repainting it. It would be as close to a 1:18 scale Grumman Goose as is possible at the moment. There are about 3 different p-40 planes available in that scale, but no seaplanes. The thing would be a monster anyway.

Mea Culpa!

Been watching a few of the episodes again. Noticed that I got the colour of the jacket completely wrong. I wasn't really satisfied with the cap either. Sanded it down until it looked right.

Left the original pics up as a comparison.

Action Figures

Those action figures look great. I've actually been working on a TOTGM computer game for a while. It's slow going since I have to struggle to come up with art work and sub-plots, and get the game play jusr right. Seeing your work, may just motivate me to get back to working on it.
