SPOCK in MOVIE ATTIRE
Picard (upper torso)
Sisko or Bashir (lower torso and legs and arms)
heads, the boil and pop method works fine, the arms should also soften
enough to be pulled off. Carefully split the body of the 1701 Picard
and save the upper torso. Split the body of the T&T figure and
save the lower torso and legs as a unit. Trim the braid off of the
arms of the T&T figure to leave a smooth sleeve. If you wish
you can sand, file or grind off a few pounds from the 1701 upper torso,
Spock was slimmer than Kirk, whose body they used for the 1701 Picard.
Place Ambassador Spocks' head in the neck joint, the T&T arms and lower
torso in the body and apply a small amount of Super Glue alone the seam
of the two upper torso half's, being careful not to get any on the moving
parts, and press together.
|Since the arms and the
rest of the jacket are different colors, I suggest that you find a red
that you feel is suitable for the jacket. I tried matching the paint
I use for the arm with the jacket but it didn't work too well so I just
painted the whole thing to make it one color. You need to paint the
correct insignia on the arm band and the shoulder strap and if so inclined
you can also add the correct emblem to the belt buckle and chest pin.
Remember the strip down the pant leg and to add a belt loop to the back
of the jacket. The piping on the front continues on the back so that
will also need to be added. Darken Mr. Spocks' hair to finish off
the figure and you have Captain Spock for your collection.
