Well my painted Timothy Dalton head sculpts arrived last week and the miscellaneous bits and pieces have also started arriving from the US and China, so I've started kinda piecing the first figure together.... The bodies I'm using are the Hot Toys TTM18 narrow shoulder version.
The first figure I'm putting together will be from the defection scene where Bond has to take out a Russian sniper as a Russian Colonal defects. In the film 007 dons a padded shooting glove on his left hand, so I purchased a pair of Dragon DML fingerless tactical gloved hands to get the one gloved hand. The rifle he uses is the Walther WA 2000. Since the grip on the 21st Century toys rifle is not contoured like the real gun, the TTM hands do not grip it realistically so I'll need to work on modifying the grip to better fit the hand. When I compared the supplied TTM hands with the DML hands, the DML hands are a bit smaller than the TTM and placing the DML hands on the rifle, they don't grip it any better, but they appear to be more correctly scaled than the TTM hands. Checking the toy rifle length against the real gun, it appears it is very close to 1/6th scale.
So my first build question is are the TTM hands oversized?
