Sweet! Considering The Forgotten Prisoner was my very first model back in 196?, I'm kinda partial to it. I love seeing the various ways modelers build/paint/customize this kit. Strong work Wolfman!

I love the colors! Can I suggest a little really light purple drybrushing over the existing purple? The details of the wall will really pop!

Looks "Aces" Wolf, makes mine look amateurish, but before I got on the forum who knew about 'shading', etc. ! ? Good interpretation !

I can see some other colors in there from the base coat. The purple kind of threw me for a loop for a sec, but it does match the box! Good job in recreating it.

Very nice! I've never seen a Prisoner model painted this way in real life. I wonder — and this is no criticism to those who opt for this painting treatment — if the model painted this way might look better in a photo that in reality. When you look at it in a photo (such as this one) it does looks very impressive, though.

Question: What did you paint the inside of the skull? From the photo, it looks like just plain black. Yes?

All of your models are so excellent, I have the highest praise and thank you for posting. Your ideas are often unique but always well done!!!

Im sure someone has asked you this before, but how do you continue to produce so many finished model kits? I love to build but maybe only build 10 a year! Even at that, Im out of display room. Wolfman, you are an Amazing Modeler!
