Wow!  Haven't updated this in a while. 

Here's my Grid Iron I just finished. I used the 50th Duke as a base and basically added vintage stuff to it and some holsters for holding the pistol and football grenades.

The hardest part was finding a decently priced vintage Grid Iron.

I've had this Slipstream for a while and after seeing so many nice Slipstream customs that incorporate the hose attachments that the vintage one had, I decided to update mine.  Unfortunately, I couldn't add the holster to mine or else he wouldn't fit in the Conquest as I had modified it and gave it interior details.  To date, this Conquest is probably my favourite vehicle interior update.

I know the vintage one had the hose on his crotch area come from the left side, but since there was a pouch on the right side, I decided to make the hose come out of there instead.





Goggles are removable so I can have them up or down.

I think you got Salvo spot on there.
Great customs...as usual.

Just finished up with Iceberg.

I managed to get some parts to update my Iceberg.  I gave him War Machine's head cause the skin tone is not as dark as the Star Wars head I previously used.  Now I can get rid of the neck scarf to cover the skin tone mismatch.  You can still see a slight mismatch if the flash is used, but in natural light, it's not really noticeable.  I wanted to use other legs, but don't have any to use, so I just changed his feet out with Frostbite's feet so they aren't so flat and skinny.

I really wanted to use this skirt piece as it flows perfectly with his jacket.  I used his vintage rifle in some pics and the wrapped one that came with the club one.  I like the vintage rifle, but it's kinda long, but just wanted to show him with it.
