Gun/Holster/Radio: Chap Mei

This was/is my very first custom (I have over 50 to post, that have been sitting around for a year or more now), and still one of my favourites; he's a little rough around the edges, but I still think he's OK. There's not enough purely naval characters in GI Joe (as opposed to SEALs and divers); off the top of my head, I can only count Cutter, Keel-Haul, Topside and Shipwreck, and this is my own attempt to redress the balance. I sliced off the pouch from Scrap Iron's torso and replaced it with a holstered pistol. The orange paint scheme is supposed to suggest a life-jacket look. It's debatable whether it succeeds, but I hope that at least it goes some way towards hiding the torso's origins.
