Ok finally the custom figure i've desired to own for the longest time is now in it's preliminary stage of becoming a reality.
A custom vintage looking Muftak.I know you've all heard me asking and talking about this for a while well now it's becoming a reality.I would like all positive reaction to this.I'm looking for help "info on what part's you guy's think were used to make this figure in this pic"what arm's and leg's are on this figure".Also what type of paint's do you customizer's use to paint these with?Gandalf,Wolff yes i need your help bud's.A.Jame's i alway's can use your advice too is alway's helpful.
I await your all info and i thank you.
Dan the man. :buzzing: :buzzing: :buzzing: :buzzing: :buzzing:

100% ewok with his head lopped off and replaced with Muftaks moulded in milliputt or somthing similar. Arms/legs have been shaved and rebulked with putty also to give slight change in apperance but still from the same ewok (stabbing a guess at lowgray). As for paint im a great fan of GamesWorkshops acrylics as they stick really well but ALL white plastic paints are a nightmare to get good coverage on.

Yeah its definitely Logray for the torso, I think even his arms + legs as well.

If they were lengthened it might simply be a case of chopping each limb in half and filling in the gap with some type of putty to make it longer then filling it over and around the leg with more putty to bulk it out a bit.

The face on that piece looks like the holes were done with a pencil lol, I am sure it can be done better Wink

It's not Paul's site , it's another aussie. But I guess you've done well to be able to read & type when you're pissed Laughing
EDIT I think it's Teebo (better leg lenth to torso length ratio), white primer paint may allow the dark grey stripes to slightly show through. Cut just ears off & ....

Teebo is way too fat and shot in the body , he looks like he had a six pack every night for 10 years!

And here you can see that just before the arm pits the body sculpt kind of slims down then gets bigger again (like hes got a corset under his fur haha )-

Lol, an extendable Ewok.

Nice to see some work in progress, but just wondering aren't the arms and legs not looking a bit longer as on the muftak in the picture?

Definately interesting to se how the custom figures are made. Funny at first when ya see a) him hacksawing on his bed and b) the ewok being chopped into pieces, lol. But clever work dude ;-)

No worries the furball is being created into another cool furball,just a little bigger one.

It does look like I'm in the nude making my customs ha ha ha Will try and put more clothes on for the next step.

As for the length, with the figure coming from an Ewok base it doesn't seem he is to scale so I've kind of gone very slightly longer. Wouldn't be far off the one pictured. Still time to adjust the lengthg if it is an issue for Dan. Whilst I've been asked to replicate it exact something in me just struggles when I see room for improvement. The main thing is the bend in the left arm in the one pictured seems not anatomically correct the bend for my judgement looks too high so I'm planning on making that little adjustment whilst maintaining the look of the other.

welcome
welcome to the boards, Paul, great work so far on Dan's Muftak (he's been after this custom for a while now, so he's probably well stoked!).
Be great to see more pics as you progress! cheers
