Bruiser driver

Tamiya BruiserPosted by xilsoe Oct 26, 2016 17:02:41
After some research and time spent getting ideas, I decided I wanted agent Smith (From the Matrix) to drive my HiLux. He would make a quite insane driver and he doesn't strike me as one who would be wearing a seat belt. So no reason to do seat belts.

I ordered an agent Smith from ebay, but decided he didn't fit very well into the driver's seat and his head was undersized, For this reason I decided to modify the original driver figure into agent Smith as he would definitely fit well into the seat.

Using the figure from ebay and pictures from the internet I modified the figure using needle files, polystyrene sheet, filler some framing from PE parts and needles. Here is the result:

I know he isn't perfect, but this is the best I could do for now. Note the sunglasses and the missing ear piece. This indicates that this is after agent Smith has been "liberated" by Neo. Also note that the suit isn't completely black. Instead it is slightly green as is the fabric of the matrix.

Then I wanted to get him a gun. The standard gun for agents of the Matrix is a Desert Eagle. I could however not find one in an appropriate sacle, so he will end up with some other gun.

I hope you like him as much as I do and look forward to see him drive my HiLux smiley
