No, not Al Franken...





Trying to get the right exposure on the face:





Base painting details:

The skin is ModelMaster Panzer Interior Buff. It had just the right "deathly flseh palor" look to me. Then I went into the shadows with slate blue-gray chalk pastel on a stubby brush. The under-eyes are rose pastel.

I had a lot more fun doing the base than the figure - you don't have to be careful painting a dungeon! Washes and dry-brushes and layers of crap. How can you mess it up? :)

Outstanding work! Yours is the first kit I've seen where someone detailed the side of the door. I plan to do that as well.

Great look. I like the skin color and will use about the same. Base does look super. Thanks for sharing!

Oh, that big blank end of the door was screaming at me "I'm too plaaaain!" :)

I also stone-textured the sides and top of the wall, and the stone sides of the doorway with a dremel grinder. Couldn't stand any of those blank sides!

And NONE of it showed up in my photos! :lol:

Great job, John! I also love what you did to the edge of the door.

And I know what you mean: I'm currently working on the floor section of the base, and having a blast. This is a fun kit.

John, that is a beautiful job. I love the skin colour and the extra detail on the base.

The gash and bruising on Frankie's forhead and just the right gloss on the eyes really brings him 'to life'. Wow, I'm channeling Colin Clive! :)

I alwyas hit a figure's eyes with a dab of Future floor polish to make them wet-looking. I wasn't sure if I should'a with a dead guy, but what the heck. :)

The door edge really makes a big difference to the overall detail. The paintwork is excellent!!

Yours is a terrific built-up, John. I really like the skin tones which closely resemble the color video of Karloff in make-up. (If only Son of Frankenstein had actually been released in color! Sigh).

Thanks for posting your pics and for sharing your technique & color scheme.

Thanks folks!
I'm having regrets that I didn't give him an argyle sweater just to be different.
