Celebrating Netflix’s THE PUNISHER with my 11-year old 1/6th-scaled kitbash
With 3 more episodes to go before I finish up THE PUNISHER on Netlix (launched Nov 17th), I’d thought to share something else instead of a “review” (which at this time is “with watching”, BTW :p): my kit bashed interpretation of a jacked-up “Frank Castle”, done in 2006 - over a decade ago, in my 1/6th-scaled hobby heyday!
I’d used a Hot Toys muscled body (from the “early days” of HT’s pre-Hollywood-license military/PMC-releases, most likely), with it’s upper torso stuck on with red colored sticker (cut in strips ala “cuts”), while togged up in a skull-print on a tee (closest I’d get to The Punisher’s skull without painting anything lol), with a pair of yummy jeans (bought loose from a possible Brothersfree figure?). Complete with molded pouches, and weapons from mixed toy brands.
Can’t remember WHOM the gloves were from, but I used small cable-ties at the end. I love having multiple-“straps” (Thanks Jim Lee’s X-Men!).
I seriously cannot remember the headsculpt underneath the gas mask tho, but I remembered adding cut-up plastic “shards” to simulate a broken eye-screen. Background props were make-shift, and “bullet shell casings” were bought from a hobby store, most probably used to make arts-n-craft bracelets and necklaces LOL
Initially, I had posted these on onesixthwarriors.com (under my earlier nick “ONESIXX”), and as well on my TOYSREVIL16-hobby blog, and since then on my TOYSREVIL16 Facebook, AND TOYSREVIL over the weekend (before I started binge-watching LOL).
Oh man, I really, truly miss kitbashing 1/6th … and am gagging to go back into the hobby again soon … as soon as I clear up my toy-situation in TOYSREVIL HQ :p
