Dreadnok Swamp Boat with Pin-Up by Dusty79
"Look out GI JOE! The Dreadnok SWAMP BOAT is the fastest craft in the swamp! It's drag boat engine and powerful weapons allow it to outmaneuver, outpace and outgun GI JOE troops in the swamp! Features machine gun, missile launcher and front mounted buzz-saw to shred through GI JOE vehicles! Includes Dreadnok driver PIN-UP!"

When I origionally bought the 1/18th die cast drag boat that this custom is based on, it was intended to be made into a new GI Joe Devilfish. When I started messing around with parts and ideas started flowing, it just felt like it should be a Dreadnok boat. I really like how it turned out, but I wish the cockpit could have been a little bigger. Its size limitations required a female driver and Pin-Up is what I came up with to fill the role. When coming up with her character, I wanted a different kind of Dreadnok. Do they all have to be so rough and tumble? Can there be a Lady Dreadnok who fits in on a modeling runway and in a swamp? I say yes.
