    GI Joe Aquanaut Kitbash

    First, a Masterpiece Edition Sailor:



    Drop most of the uniform, and all the extras, leaving the boots, Dog Tag, and Cap to be used later.

    Next, a reproduction Uniform from 3rd Son Books.



    The pin will probably go in my hat, and the Adventure Team sticker will go towards an Adventure Team member who needs it on their uni.

    My Land Adventurer probably.



    These go to Eleven...

    So, thrown all together with a GIJCC Reproduction brown shoulder holster, I figure I've got a play-Aquanaut that's pretty nice. The neck of the sweater is a little Velma for my tastes, but for 8 dollars, I can manage. The sweater is actually knit in some way, and is fairly stretchy.





    Posed with my GI Joe Convention 2016 Aquanaut (left) for comparison.

    Vintage 3D Joes Aquanaut for further comparison.

    Fantastic, I did that exact same thing except I used the ME Joe along with his cap and dog tag and I had a vintage sweater, pants and boots. One problem is I wanted the same pants from the Con set that has 2 front pockets - I may have a pair custom made.

    Well done!

    Forgot to mention a repro holster and pistol - also need a repro box.

    Are you using that 3SB uniform also?


    Never mind, just read your first post again, you're using vintage.
