12th Doctor 'The Lie of the Land' Custom

Post by canton the Fifth »

The second custom I've done recently! Series 10 is my favourite of NuWho and I was never quite happy with the 12th Doctor figures release by CO due to their scaling issues. To make this look from 'The Lie of the Land' I used the torso and arms from a S7b 11th Doctor figure which I picked up on eBay, carefully cut off the watch chain with a knife and sculpted small buttons on the back of the coat with milliput. I also removed the bowtie and sculpted a closed collar. For the legs and boots, I used a Series 8 12th Doc. I sprayed everything black, then applied several dry brushes of lighter greys to the coat to give it a worn look. I used the head from the original 7b release as it is much sharper than subsequent releases, and the 11th Doc torso combined with the smaller Series 8 boots helps a lot with the scaling issue.

That's nice, I'm a big fan of the linen coat, wish it was in more episodes.

I did something similar. It's a great custom, isn't it?
