WWII Mini Destroyer

This is a fusion of a CI Boys mini destroyer and a WWII tank. I've always liked alternate history machinery so I thought it would be cool to turn the "bucket" of the mini destroyer into a WWII era army helmet. From there I just cut the turret and some of the top off of a small tank and sunk it into the bucket. The hardest part was probably dremeling through the tank's diecast hull. I took my time though and I think it came out clean. I also had to insert rods into the hull to attach the legs. They can move at the hips, knees, and ankles. Painting was easy enough; primed him, sprayed him green, drybrushed sand.

This little guy is now part of my friend Adrian's collection of awesome designer toys.
