Here is another GI Joe Classified scale custom RC vehicle I just finished. Base vehicles used were the Milton Bradly Big Trak and Bear River Ignite Black Ops rc tank.

Modern Take on the WOLVERINE

Enjoy

That is all-around awesome. I remember the Big Trak from when I was a kid and was wondering if/when I'd ever see a worthwhile custom using it. Great job on it - is the chassis/outer shell the only original piece, or were you able to salvage other bits?

And what all went into CG? I see the Peggy head - what was the rest of the recipe?

Again - amazing stuff. Just a great idea and execution from top to bottom.

the tank looks great, but i'm really loving that take on cover girl. thank you for not making her look like a centerfold! i always thought covergirl was like an ironic nickname for a tomgirl, or at least someone not worried about looking like a covergirl.

Thank you.
Recipe for Cover Girl is as follows:
Arms and Jacket: Marvel Legends Captain Marvel Bomber Jacket Figure
Legs and body: GI Joe Classified Lady Jay
Head sculpt: Marvel Legends Series Captain Carter

Oh and a lil bit of painting.

Yes I feel the same way. She should be portrayed as a bad ass not just a pretty face.

Thank you very much. If I can catch you off guard with a custom I've done something right.

You served us a plate full of awesomeness, thanks!
I'm seeing a lot more custom RC G.I.Joe vehicles recently. Very inspiring, I'll have to look into that too now.

This is amazing. Really great work on both the Wolverine and Cover Girl. The parts combo for CG is perfection. Great paint apps on both
