All: Vintage GI Joe Howitzer


I had a beat-up vintage Howitzer in my fodder box that I really did not know what to do with. I picked it up cheap at a local toy show a few years ago since I'm a sucker for the old battlefield accessory sets and I can never get enough. I already have a clean green vintage set, a desert custom and a blue Cobra custom, so a Night Force version seemed like a fun version to do next. I had to cut off the end of the cannon barrel since the tip was melted as well as drill a new hole for the trailer hitch. After that, it was simply a matter of painting the whole thing black.

Usually Night Force vehicles have red guns and missiles. In this case, since the whole playset is a gun, I opted to use stickers for the red highlights rather that red painted parts.

To teach, improve, share, entertain and showcase the work of the customizing community.
