    this will be my 1st attempt at this kind of thing . so im doing all i can. I also know it may not be great but it will be the best i can do.. i wanted to portray a Marine with a flame thrower so i cut the pack off the back. i wanted to have this bust side by side with the same bust ( i did earlier) so i cut all the starps holster and things off the front so as not to be identical.

    i am making the back of the helmet cover out (seen this done in some photos). making the flamethrower out of CO2 cannisters and the frame from paperclips, with everything else plasti-struc. (even the Bible in the front pocket). please keepin mind i really am just winging it lol. comments welcome.
