    Thanks!
    They are very hard to paint.......especially the Packer "G" on the helmet.
    All of them were players from other teams that i turned into Packers.
    AJ Hawk and Nick Barnett were both Ray Lewis.
    Favre and Rodgers were Chad Pennington.

    I just finished one of Jordy Nelson. I used a Tony Gonzalez to make him.

    Wow, those are sweet. I've seen plenty of customs made from the larger figures, but none from the 3 inch line. Seems like a project that would take a lot of patience!

    Thanks! I have seen the bigger ones customized too. Thats kind of what gave me the idea to try the little ones.
    I have whats called "familial tremors", so it makes it even harder. But i like the challenge it gives me. Makes me work even harder to try to make them look half decent. My wife knows when i screw one up.....she hears me curse! :lol: The nice thing is, i can usually go back and repaint the mess up to fix it.

    I used to paint D&D Minis, so for you to be able to paint those with those tremors, hats off. :cool:

    The figures usually are $6 each, but i got them on clearance for cheaper then that. It takes several days to paint one, as i do it a section at a time. Like i'll do the jersey one day, then the pants the next. Then i work on the helmet, and then detailing on the jersey. If you try to do them too fast, you end up smudging up the paint because of their small size.
    So you have to be VERY patient!

    Cheesey, didn't we have a discussion about you posting pictures of your 3" "figurine" on the website. We don't run that sort of operation here (outside of the smack area).
