Greetings and salutation. Posted some new pics. Off and running on another replacement base this time for the Aurora Frankenstein kit. The nameplate is provided courtesy of Fritz Frising. Look under the This & That section:

Thanks guys! I thought Franky needed a change of scenery. I think the figure works as well in the 3/4 pose as the classic straight on pose.

Thanks HB! I'll add you to the list. I've got one of the GS sets on order as well. Got a few customizing ideas myself. Be sure to post some pics of Dracula when you finish him up.

Greetings. Posted a couple more recent photos under the This & That section. Last I'll be able to post for a couple weeks while my camera goes off to Canon for repairs. Anyway the nameplate is finished and I've added the partial archway. Thought making it a seperate piece might make the casting a bit easier. If all goes well I hope to have this wrapped up later this month.

Excellent work, Rick! I like it even more than your Drac base (which I like, too, and have not had a chance to work on yet since WF).

Whatcha got in mind for the Wolf Man? Come on, we all know you're thinking it...the tree addition helps but he needs a whole new base! :)

Gotta admit Rick, he's right. so far you've batted two out of the park, and most people agree that the Wolf Man base is one of the, if not THE weakest of the Aurora bases...

The Aurora Wolf Man always struck me as kinda a generic, fairytale-type werewolf more than anything else...maybe a base fitting that setting might be interesting? Gingerbread house? I dunno, ain't up on my Grimm's.

Thanks for the great feedback everyone! Okay, the thought of a new base for The Wolfman has crossed my mind... once or twice. I've had a couple different ideas. The obvious would be something close to the box art with a tree. The other would be a graveyard style base.

The next project I'm working on however will be an add-on for the upcoming Dr. Jekyll as Mr. Hyde kit. A shelf with some bottles & books and an extra floor piece to add a bit of space.
