    This section looked a little lonely, so thought I would show some works from an earlier passion of mine, 1:6 scale "action figures, or as those in the hobby call them, mandollies Very Happy

    First is a psuedo mini-me from Desert Storm..

    Then, my mini-me from OIF. Might sound a bit vain, but I actually had my noggin commissioned 1:6. Two of them actually, as I thought they would make a neat memento for my sons after I am gone. This was one of them. Plus, I can't deny it was kinda fun seeing how I would've looked as a GI, or dirty Nazi in WW2, lol. I also made a psuedo mini-me from Kosovo, but since this board is all about ODS/OEF/OIF, won't show it.

    My second mini-me figure actually in Iraq on a return trip. I might be a hard ass, or asshole depending on your view,my ex would go with the latter, in real life, but my inner child will always be there Very Happy

    Mike,
    I see absolutely no reason why you couldn't or shouldn't post your Kosovo model. Post away!

    I've often thought about doing exactly what you did, minus the custom head. Your "mini-you's" look great. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Never really liked Mega-Death too much. Just a couple of songs back then, one of which seemed fitting at the time, lol. Here it is on my actual Kpot, which this and my choco-chips were the backdrop. And my thanks to those who commented. Glad you like!

    And some pics, showing the use of the CVC "chicken vest" as depicted in the figure..
