Hi guys. I was wondering if anyone has any tips (or links to a tutorial or other kind of page) on modding or hacking a regular plastic body (eg. a Hot Toys narrow shoulder body for example) to make it a little bit more realistic?

Like adding bulk? Increasing flexibility/posing potential? Adding detail or form to some of the more simple and/or shiny plastic parts like the arms, shins, calfs, ankles, etc?

I remember a few years ago seeing a post or link to someone who had a tutorial to mod/hack 1/6th bodies by wrapping and taping foam to give them more natural bulk and to dremmel and sand down certain areas to increase their flexibility and enable more natural poses... but alas, I cant find it :(

Would sincerely appreciate any tips or links anyone can provide :)

Never be afraid to search on here:

http://www.onesixthwarriors.com/for...odifications-aka-chopped-bodies-tutorial.html

The tutorial still works too. I have pics for the thread you mentioned, but, they date from 2002 and the search results I had only went back to 2006.

Here's an HT one:

Another, which even has mods I did:

There are more, but then I'd be doing it all for you. Just search body mods, start at the last and work back.

Just don't necropost, many OP's from early posts may not be active now.

CHEERS!

Thanks rogerbee. I tried searching! :D I entered "body hack mod" - thinking it would return threads that had any of those words in the title - but it only returned about 4 threads, none of which were what I was after. The search must only return threads that have ALL of those words? Weird.

EDIT: Yep, doing a search for just "body mod" returns a lot more results. Now I know I guess ;)
