OK I've had the Hines Ward McFarlane ever since it first came out, I never did like the pose it was in, I did'nt like the pole you had to fasten him to. When I saw the Broncos Champ Bailey figure the wheels started to turn. I came up with this:

I did some work on Hines first, patched the spot in his hip where the pole attaches and alittle paint touchup. Champ took alittle more work, I had reposition his arms and remove the football, this created a hole that I had to patch. The jeresy WAS blue so it and the numbers have been repainted. I'm pretty proud of it, what do ya think?
Oh and here's one of my little Steeler Shrines:

Nice job. :applaudit: Wish I could do the same. Wish I could at least put "XL" on my Polamalu's & Hasselbeck's figures.

Thanks guys! It took me about 4 hours I guess. All those years of building plastic models as a kid are finally paying off! I did notice one mistake however, the broncos have a thin orange stripe next to blue "side" stripe on the pants and jeresy. I have to touch that up.

How'd you do it? Did you use a heat gun to bend the limbs? I guess Bailey was in his Home uni? Sorry for all the questions. lol, I'm just impressed and I HAVE TO KNOW! lol.

The arms will move alitle, about 30 degrees out, where the arm meets the end of the sleeve. his head will move slightly too. Some McFarlanes will do that, I got lucky otherwise I would have had to cut them off and then reglue. Yes, Bailey was in the home blue when I started.
