New Restoration project, Whiting treatment.

Got this on a lot a long time ago. i was always bummed how it was complete (the vehicle) and that it had all stickers on. but the heat damage for the way it was stored was bad.. pretty bad. so i found it on a plastic bin that was almost full of damaged vehicles and figures on a spare room on my parents home. and i will admit.. i wanna restore this now even more. looks pretty white and solid. now it only needs new stickers.. and a complete pilot (Sci-fi) Method- Salon #40 mixed with Oxy Clean powder. a resealable bag big enough to cover it. just cover all the vehicle with a clean paint brush (2" preferable) and let it get direct sunlight. it took almost 3 days to reach the white desired.

A collection of Snow Serpents 85'

I will be filling this with all kinds of pictures from the awesome cobra Snow Serpent figure.. from 1985 to the present.

Some classic copperhead piece. to be honest i would loved to see this version of copperhead made reality on any of the late joeclub exclusives. but we can always make our own.

Whiting other vehicles

Finally had the chance to try and clean my cobra Maggot from that awful greenish color that takes over when the heat and sun damage appears on blue plastic.

Today i worked with the Sgt Slaughter Triple T tank. the vehicle is missing some parts like the engine cover.. two of the wheels under it were broken.. the two black missiles are missing and the man itself Sgt Slaughter is missing also. got it on a lot a couple years ago and i keep it since all tabs were unbroken. after the process of whiting i noticed that unlike previous whiting project the ink in this particular stickers started to come off. apparently these stickers are not like the previous clear ones that cleaned nice after the whiting process. so in the end this vehicle will need a new set of stickers.the final result was nice.. clean and bright.
this is the result. i applied the mix only on the white parts with a paint brush of 2 1/2 inches and bagged it sealed under the sun for about 2 hours and 1/2. rinsed with clean water and let it dry.
This are some stock photos of the vehicle brand new and the box art.

Got a couple of these a long time ago.. i love this Cobra boat "Water Moccasin".the newer versions are noticeable bigger than the original 1984 boat. i will aim for a HTF version for my personal display. these days these vehicles are getting harder and harder to obtain.. and prices are not affordable for the average collector.. so my best option is to create a custom that can fill the shoes on a display case while keeping the pockets from suffering a loss of sometimes of about a couple hundreds. if you like the final product i am open for commissions.. like with any other of my projects. contact me if interested.
