Phantom of The Opera

Recommended Posts

Yet another kit that has been sitting, waiting for paint for a while now.  It's Lon Chaney Sr., as the Phantom of the Opera.  This is a four part kit - the bust and 3 pieces for the base. Silent Screen Icons also included sheets of miniature music to add to the base.
Diving right in, things start with some research and I found that Lon Chaney Sr. had both brown hair and eyes. Being that the film was in B&W, I'm free to paint the figure whatever I wanted, so I used the typical dark suit, ivory shirt, and the reddish tie. Base was painted like a dark dank sewer walls. The sheet music was provided and all I did was give it a wash with Citadel sepia. Thanks for looking.

Excellent. I love Saul's kits. I have them all except for the new one he announced for Jerseyfest

Thanks.

Agreed. Saul has some outstanding stuff. I picked up his Daenrys (or however she spells her name)at last years JF. But I'm on a mission to finish one of FPs Avatar helicopters that I was told is a real dog and stopped another modeler in his tracks. (The model does remind me of one I would have gotten in the early 90s). 😯

I'm not much for the garage kit genre, but you have done a  remarkable job with this.  Kudos.
