Beautiful and very natural-looking paint work on a terrific sculpt! Having finally seen the movie for the first time only a few months ago, I wouldn't mind getting this kit myself.

Well, my days of not taking you seriously are certainly coming to a middle.

Wow! For the first time? That must've been an eye-opener!

Great work on a great kit! Love this classic movie. Frightened the he!! out of me when I saw it as a boy. I remember watching it on the tv on a Sat afternoon and trying to fight off sleep that night because I didn't want 'them' to get me in the House of Pain.

A beautiful rendition Tim

Regards,

I actually saw it for the first time with a friend when I was 12 years old in a theater; it was on a double-bill with "Freaks". My friend, who liked horror films, was very disturbed afterwards and never wanted to see either movie ever again.

Having never seen the movie, I don't know the background, however your build-up looks terrific! I may look for the movie one of these days.

I'm a big fan of classic horror films (and classic films in general, for that matter) and I'd seen both the 1977 and 1996 Island of Dr. Moreau movies, but somehow missed Island of Lost Souls time and time again until the Criterion Collection dvd release last October. It immediately became a "new" favorite, and I'll certainly be adding it to my dvd collection in the near future.

Tim,


Island of Lost Souls AND Freaks on the same bill? And you saw these movies at age 12 !?! That explains a lot...

Impressive work on this model. That especially goes for the graded hairline of the backs of the Sayer's hands and the areas of his face where the hard edges weren't indicated. Getting a natural-looking hairline can make or break a convincing figure.

Here's a small carp, about the size of an underbourished smelt: the Sayer's clothes look really clean; I don't recall a "visit the laundry regularly" clause in The Law.

Really nice build up Tim and I am another who has never seen the film, or actually hadn't even heard of it until you posted this. But whatever you did an outstanding job on the creature, he's much better looking than the classic Aurora wolfman! I really like you detail work and colors, great job.

Yeah, thatís a bit young to see those two very disturbing movies. If Iíd seen those films at that age, I would have needed therapy afterwards.

Island of Lost Souls is still the best and creepiest film version of the H.G. Wells tale. And Kathleen Burke as Lota the Panther Woman was one sexy little babe.

She also did a convincing job as the Panther Woman - her mannerisms and her speech patterns really made her seem like not quite a human being.

His clothes actually look a bit more beat up under normal light. There's a lot of dust on his pants, and his shirt has yellow-brown stains on it.

Ah. Well, in that case, I'm happy. Oh, and you should be, too.
