Although I have been building models since I was about 8, I am still just learning all the skills that turn a cartoon model into a real life model. This is my first monster kit using these techniques so have a look and let me know what you think.

I used the article in a recent issue of Kitbuilder magazine. Dan Jorgensen did a very detailed article on building this kit and I used a lot of the tricks he used on his. I did change some things though and actually did the head 3 times before I got it the way I wanted.

Great work; you only did the head three times? When I paint a kit, especially when I screw up, I do the head and most other parts a lot more than three times!

So I'm not the only one in that boat! LOL I even had to buy a can of Easy-Off for removing the paint. But at the same time I removed the paint from an Aurora Frankenstein base that I will be doing soon as well. I started it some years back under the same circumstances and stopped when I realized it wasn't coming out the way I liked much at all. I am getting a bunch of ideas and suggestions on here and from the mags and appreciate it and the kind comments. Now I just need to hone my skills which can only be developed with practice.
