From the desk of Bucky:
Overboard and Devilsharc:
I didn't have any ideas on a vehicle for the project until I stumbled across the Corps boat at a toy store last October. I'm not much of a vehicle customizer. I think they turn out ok, but I have nowhere near the talent I see all over the forums (or my partners in crime Dusty and Oreobuilder). I tend to stick with smaller builds if I try to tackle them. Of course, I ruined the first attempt by dropping it off the shelf one day. The upper shell cracked, and I was more than just a little annoyed by that. I was able to get another after a search, and started over again. In the meantime, I had the diver/pilot built and ready to go. I did my best to try to get him to look a bit unlike the divers we are used to seeing. I had really good luck with the paint in that it took great and left the figure fully poseable!

  1. Nice diver! His backstory reminds me of my fascination with sea life as a kid.

    The parts allotment should actually be torso=Rise of of Cobra reactive armor, arms=25th Snake Eyes, legs=DVD pack Snake Eyes, mask=Jvs.C Wet-Suit, flippers=POC Beachhead.
