Step 1: Duke's Gun

And i'm all outta gum...

Let's start with Duke's Pistol.
Lay your Cap gun on newspaper and Prepare your Gold and Black Paint.
with some masking tape, cover the Black areas and handle on both sides and then paint it Gold. leave it for 24 hours before doing the Black.
Masking tape the Gold and the Handle and then Paint the uncovered areas Black.
Leave it for 24 hours
for the Handle, i'd recommend using Modelling clay to fill the Handle's Gaps. leave the Clay to dry for 24 hours before painting the Handle White., i'd use a small printed picture of the logo for the Handle as it would professional skill to paint it on.

Step 2: The Vest.

The Vest is Relatively easy, just find a Red Vest in your loal town centre. i got mine for £1.99 from CargoBay.
i'd pick up a cheap bullet belt and attach them to either soide of your vest (Attach it to your Belt)

Step 3: Jeans and Belt Buckle

You need a pair of Blue Jeans, if you don't own a pair of Blue Jeans, you haven't fufilled a life task!!
The Belt buckle can be attached to any Belt Buckle. just cut out a Duke Nukem logo onto some Cardboard, stick it together and just glue it down to the existing Belt Buckle. or you could make a buckle from steel.

Step 4: Duke's Hair

You can do two things here.
you can buy a blonde wig, stick it up and starch spray it to keep it's shape.
you can go to a barbers and get a flat top done.
