The idea is to get figues bent to fit a new use, like these Iraqi crew, whose arms and heads have been altered to get them to hold a machine gun or the turret cap rim, and to look natural doing it. After moving arms, it's also necessary to see if the head is looking in a natural direction too.
I wanted some pilots for a helicopter so at the moment I'm using Revell infantry figures and changing the position of their arms and legs. I've used the same principle for tank commanders and so on amd found that while some things are easy to do, other stuff needs a bit more thought..
This one was fairly straightforward - the arm was cut off and glued back with superglue in the new position.
