MOVIE UNIFORM ADMIRAL KIRK
Kirk (arms) 1701
Picard (torso & legs)
and pop all the pieces free from their bodies. Place Gen. Kirk's head on
the 1701 Picard body. Then place the arms in their correct sockets. Next,
use a knife to scrap away the black seem of his jacket that falls to the
right of his chin. Playmates made the seem go around the side of his neck
but in reality, it stops at his chin (see reference photo). Sculpt his
rank band on his left arm and sculpt his shoulder band to wrap around to
his right shoulder blade. Finally, Scuplt a patch to cover his belt directly
on the center of his back. (to make it look like a big belt loupe) See
Star Trek 2 for reference.
|Paint a stripe on the
outside of each leg, the belt loupe, and his arms red to match the body.
Paint his shoulder strap and arm band white with gold trim. Paint a gold
stripe along the outline of the black seem of hisnia on his shoulder and
arm band. If you choose, paint his hair slightly darker than the original
color. Now your figure should be done.
You may need see a shot of Kirk's back from the movie to understand the
belt loupe and shoulder strap's shape.
