Project CanvHISS injects art with a G.I. Joe flair

Announced on Facebook a short while ago, the canvHISS Project promised to be a very intriguing experiment by long time collector and G.I. Joe fan Kevin Watts.  Always having a fascination with the HISS Tanks, basing many of his custom vehicles around it, Kevin has now brought it more into the art spectrum.

Working alongside a few collaborators, Kevin presented the first ever demonstration of the CanvHISS Project, which takes the HISS Tank template and uses it to create unique forms of art.  Sometimes that art is a custom vehicle, but sometimes it is something completely different.  John from JoeCustoms submitted a very unique Wizard of Oz project, while Nova presented a fantastic homage to Knight Rider, with a real strobing red headlight.

Your imagination is really your only limit, and the exhibit is quite fascinating.  It premiered at JoeCon, and you can see the gallery below.  The next time this awesome experiment will be debuted will be at New Jersey Collectors’ Convention April 28, 2013.  Check out more details on this great project at the CanvHISS Project Facebook Page, and some images are mirrored below.

    Wow, that last pic reminds me of the very old modular BSG toys. You could take the front end of a Viper and stick it on the back end of a wheeled vehicle. I haven’t thought of those toys for 30 years!
