Desert Patrol Squad Part 2 - Tunnel Rat and Gung Ho
Tunnel Rat was one of the solid figures from the original 6-pack, so I stuck close to recipe for parts and colors. He is basically a repaint of most of the 25th figure. I swapped out the torso because I felt that the original was too skinny and cartoony (I also needed it for another custom).
Head, legs, scarf, holster, weapon: 25th Tunnel Rat
Torso, arms: 25th Shipwreck v2
Gung-Ho's recipe was tricky to nail down. He did not look right using 25th parts. When 50th Gung-Ho was released, it helped define the figure in a big body frame. It allowed me to rebuild him with bigger modern parts. That meant moving away from the original's jacket to a tank top, but I think it still works.
Head: DTC Guillotine
Torso, arms: Ret Roadblock
Hands: Ret Firefly
Legs: 50th Gung-Ho
Head band: 25th Hard Master
Bullet belt: Ret Kwinn
