Fantastic job.Definitely the Horizon Frankenstein is superior to the Moebius Frankenstein which is too skinny.:thumbsup:

Ian,

Great job on the face, really great! You are a master of the brush. I read on another thread you did some box art work. Good going! Post it if you've got pics I'd like to see it.

A little heads-up here: That ain't Franky, it's Frankys monster! You know, as Dr. Franky. :D

I thought I had already commented but I guess not or maybe I did on FB. But that said Ian, another great job by you. You always get the colors right, the detailing right, the clothing right, and the shading right. Simply a great looking Frank.

Ian,

Another great job on this Horizon Frankenstein...one of my favorites and hard to come by these days!

The base and nameplate look great as well...they compliment the kit just right!

You captured the look of the monster perfectly!:thumbsup:

There seems to be something funky about his legs...not sure if it is the sculpt or just the angle of the pics or not...but they look like they aren't quite straight...might be my eyes or the pic. Maybe some warpage or sag to the vinyl? Did you notice that?
From the front, he looks fine but from the sides you can see something...

MMM

the slight shift in the legs are normal, as in the film Karloff wore 'wader' boots - these were visible on many of the production shots.. and since they were like wellington boots the top of the boot made the trouser area bend out more..
