Cobra Coyote - Custom door Tim 121RVC
Op het forum van GIJoe.nl postte Tim 121RVC zijn nieuwe custom voertuig, de Cobra Coyote, welke wij graag met jullie delen. Dit was de omschrijving van Tim:
In het Engels, want ik had het al op Joecustoms gepost:
I made this for a Vamp/Stinger customizing contest on Blood Brigades FB page. I didn't want to do a weapons swap + different paintjob only, so I challlenged myself using parts and styrene to almost completely change the look while still keeping a little bit of Stinger recognizable.
Stinger ‘84 (front half)
Snow Cat ‘85 (wheels)
AWE Striker ‘85 ("sidesteps")
Radar Rat ‘89 (the things on the sides)
Piranha ‘90 (back gun)
Metal-Head ’90 missile box (hood rocket launcher)
Mudbuster '92 (back half)
Patriot ‘92 (bumper)
Chap Mei cannon on top
Styrene (several stuff, e.g. new axles, the hood)
I knew I was going to paint it in a desert scheme, but I had doubts until the very last moment (when I was about to put the decals on it 8-O ) about who was going to use it: G.I.Joe or Cobra. Yes, the Joes already had the Vamp II and Desert Fox, but it would look great with Dusty V1 driving it. Still went for Cobra because they´re lacking desert vehicles.
The small missile launcher on the hood might look out of place, but I see this Cobra Coyote driving full speed at a gate or checkpoint, blasting away a road obstacle with those missiles. Supported by fire from the top cannon this vehicle is very suitable for quick attack operations!
