  1. Looks terrific!! As a side bar I didn't read the title correctly and was wondering what the heck "My chin ass" meant... Doh ๐Ÿ˜›

    Fr. Merrin

    This is another beauty kit from Gillman Productions. Any horror fan will recognize Fr. Merrin as Max Von Sidow, one of the two exorcists who came to help the possessed Regan. This is a 3 part, 1:4 kit, in flawless resin. There is a minor seam-line you can detect through the hair, that is done away with in no time at all. As usual I started out with black primer, and a highlight of light gray. When dry I added Beige Red for the first skin tone. Since the Holy Water bottle isn't quite correct (the one on the movie was made of glass) I decided to make this one gold. So to get that

    Hehe If they offered a resin Bob Marley ghost I'd have a crack at it. ๐Ÿ˜‰ LOL
  4. I was reading on another forum that they noticed that a bunch of Companies are no longer letting Squadron sell their stuff. The thought was they were having financial troubles again. I've only dealt with them in the Nats Vendor Room, so I have no dealings for mail order first hand. If you paid by Payapla etc... I would keep track of the clock to get your money back. Maybe a good idea to forgo the order and get the $$ back in case the business goes south. Just my 2ยข what do I know...
  5. As soon as I read "short run" I was wondering how difficult it was. LOL ๐Ÿ˜‰ You did a VERY nice job with it! Some, with a lot of work turn into nice models as you've shown.
  6. For the foam out of the hose you could use clear caulking like whats done when making waterfalls on train layouts. Just don't flatten it. Lay out clear caulking on a piece of clear kitchen wrap. Measure out the distance and just run a bead that long. When dry you can peel it off the clear wrap. It should be flexible enuff to make it mimic water out of a fire hose. For the foam on the ground you could take some 2 part epoxy like Aves or Magic Sculpt, mix the two parts, and with a wide paint brush and water smooth out the epoxy until you like it. As long as you keep the stuff wet you'll be
  7. Thank you sir! ๐Ÿ˜ Was a fun lil kit.
  8. This is another kit from deep in the stash. I'm guessing I saw it on FB somewhere, had to have it, and then buried it in The Pile. LOL ๐Ÿ˜‰ It's a 1:24th scale kit from Modern Armies in Scale (MAiM). It's listed on their website under the category "What If '46." It's 3D printed and then I'm guessing cleaned, molded and cast as I don't see any grow lines. I'm guess whats supposed to be a fuel tank has a lot of edges rather than circular, but it's so obvious, it had to be on purpose. There's ~20 parts to this kit. The main body comes in 2 parts and gives you enough room to paint the
  9. All sounds terrific. Looking fwd. to it! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks. The Citadel paint for a tarnished copper look really makes a good ghostly color. ๐Ÿ˜‰
  11. Thanks. Basically just remembering what the cartoon kid wore. LOL ;) I like how these sculptors can turn a 2D illustration into a 3D statue.
  12. WOW, nice get! That'll keep you busy thru the those Calif. "winters." ๐Ÿ˜‰
  13. This kit has been in my stash for a very long time. So long in fact that it outlasted the producer - Two Fat Guys. Sidebar: one of the guys went on to form JPG Productions. The 1:2256 scale model came in 7 or 8 parts (I forget now) and was very easy to clean up and get ready for building. The parts went together effortlessly. Looking at images from the Phantom Menace movie, it had this beige, almost rust looking color. What I decided to do was start dark and then mask off sections which would be panels. Then sprayed a lighter color. I did the masking and painting for

    Another excellent sculpt from John Dennett and Moondevil Studios. The 1:5th bust was cast in a light green odorless resin. The kit comes in 2 parts - the bust and the base. After washing with warm soapy water, and giving it a coat of primer I wanted to make Jacob the ghost he was when seen in his scene of A Christmas Carol. I had used Citadel's Nihilakh Oxide on the Ghost Lighthouse Keeper and decided Jacob needed the same treatment. But first he needed his earthly colors. As this movie (1952 film) was in B&W, I was free to use whatever I want. So I decided on a white shirt, bla

    Thanks. It's a fairly new kit from Troy, so he may have some on hand, or if not only a few days away with his caster. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I picked this one off the shelf as I saw it as a fast little build. Sculpted by Troy McDevitt, is a very nice caricature, with one two bubbles on two of the teeth, and seam lines that were nearly invisible. The part fit very well and only a little bit of Aves was used along the spines, and where the spines met his tail. After that it got a coat of Vallejo Air NATO Black as a primer. I like the NATO Black because to my eyes it looks like there a little green in it, and models don't just look black. After that it got a drybrush of a mid range gray. while that was drying I got out some I
  20. With the table cleared it was time to dive into the pile again for some new kits to work on. This time I pulled out two, both from Gillman Productions. The first is Pepper from the series American Horror Story, and the Freakshow story. We find the kit is similar to Twisty from the same show with a sort of carnival base. The kit comes in only 3 parts - the head, bust, and base. Every so often you'll get a cool illustration from Mark Van Tine, the sculptor! Base colors added. except for the ice cream (at the time I was still researching that). ;) (EDIT: chocolate, strawb
  21. Today's subject is another from MoonDevil Studio. It's the Howling Man, from a 1060 episode of the Twilight Zone. From IMDB: Just looking at the sculpt you get to see how the story ends. The kit comes in the usually 2 parts, the bust and the base. The kit is typically well done and only the slightest seamline is seen across the slicked back hair. Looking at images of the actor, Robin Hughes, the first obvious thing is that it's all in B&W (Duh, it was 1960, Kev...). My first idea was to paint it up that way. But it was only a few days after JerseyFes
  22. Looks good to me! Re: the air spitter - I see you're using Vallejo. If the a/b is clean, I would suggest thinning the paint at least 50%, and bring the psi to under 20. I'm shooting Vallejo at about 12-15 psi and never get a clog (or spitting). HTH
  23. Thanks guys! Wow a second in SciFi? Excellent! There are always so many good looking, well done models in the SciFi category.
