    Changing my BBI Japanese

    I been thinking about changing the look of my BBI Japanese Marine by using the hat rather than the helmet, but I want to know what you do with yours before i decide!

    Thanks

    I put the helmet over the cap on my figure, one of the ways it was worn. One of the disappointments with "Dusty Rhodes", the Marine was that he had no cap (cover) to do the same.

    You can also tie a white headband (hachimaki) on his forehead, under the helmet. It can be plain or have a red "meatball". You can also add kanji, the Japanese characters. Here's a site where you can find info on that -

    Because of the Club Photo fiasco, I haven't posted anything lately, and haven't moved to another photo sharing location yet.

    If they show up as Club Photo ads, you should be able to see them by right-clicking, copying the properties, and pasting and entering in the address line.

    Sorry. I've only used and displayed him with his soft cover.

    BTW, the sculpt is the BBI zero pilot, which I liked better than the original Rikusentai sculpt.

    Would you recomend me using the Cap instead of the helmet. The reason I use the helmet is because it looks so darn nice on him! and I love the netting inside!

    Thanks

    Ideally...

    You would pull the first part of the chin tie under the chin, and tie the knot just beneath the mouth.

    This style mimics the ties of the Samurai kabuto (helmet). It can be done with patience, but would require tacking the knot to the chin with glue.
