CHEWIE's customs updated 06.22.2012
« on: May 18, 2003, 01:19 AM »
UPDATE - Please go to the latter pages of this thread... the first pages are almost 6 years old!  Therefore not only do the customs look terrible that are showing, most aren't even showing anyway as the hosting services I used back then is no longer active... you can also see more of my stuff under JUSTIN COOK at www.thecustomalliance.com

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For all you customizers out there, here's a recipe for a Qui Gon that I just created.

parts needed:

- Naboo Qui Gon
- Jedi Nikto arms
- headless Tusken cape
- Fleet Trooper hands

Boil-n-pop like normal, and after removing Nikot's hands, dremel a little in there to make room for the Fleet Trooper's hands to fit.

Cut a little off the Nikto arm pegs and put them onto Qui Gon's body.

Paint the arms and cloak as desired (don't put the cloak on yet though).

Apply a coating of acrylic seal.  Paint again after drying.  Do this several times if desired.

Cut a slit on each arm hole in the armpit area of the cloak to add flexibility.

Add the cloak to the figure.

Ta-Da!

Sounds good "on paper" CHEWIE, but I need to see a picture or two to be convinced that it's worth doing!   ;)

Got any?   8)  I suppose I could look into it even if you don't have any pix though...  Thanks for the recipe!

Those are all just phenomenal. Seriously...I'd buy that Bib Fortuna in a heartbeat!

Even though it's all identifiable parts (for the most part) your use of them is absolutely great. You take the pieces of that Jedi Warriors 3-pack and make 'em look good!Hasbro could sell 3-packs of sets like these and I'd eat up whole cases at a time.

Greta work all around CHEWIE! Even the backdrop is outstanding!

I know a plethora of people who would be irate that you used a Battle of the Bulge XD figure for customizing since they were (at least at one point) rare.  They're still something you can only get online.  :)

I agree on the Bib.  Best of the bunch, easily.  Very good parts use.

Hey guys, thanks for the kind words.  I'm not very talented in customizing as you can probably tell, but I do try my best.

There's an update on the custom alliance for my stuff, just click on my signature and you'll see that one photonovel (part 2 should be on there very soon) and a few diorama pics.

Thanks and feel free to make comments and suggestions.

Grrrrrr.....

I've been trying to get my second photonovel onto the customalliance.com for about a month now, but it still hasn't been added...

Would those that run the site here be interested in hosting my photonovels?

Yes! Please host the photonovels!

A custom showcase on JD would be pretty damn cool!

Thanks Jesse!  If it goes through, I could have as many as 10 to send before the end of the year.
