There's no such thing as too much golf Bones looks good, nice choice for your first vinyl.
Actually vinyl is easier that styrene. Fewer parts, therefore fewer seams. Like you I haven't started a resin kit yet, but I have a few in the pile.Ravenauthor said:I have yet to attempt any of my vinyl and resin models, but I may have to try one soon. Did you find it that difficult to do a vinyl model?
Yes, Kirk, Spock and Scotty are next up on the bench. I'll probably do all three at once since they are so similar.Got Kirk and Spock in the works, too?
It's still a work in progress. I've been thinking about doing that, I just don't want to overdo it.Mark McGovern said:The effort that Ziz has put into his McCoy shows just how far from a likeness to DeForrest Kelley the kit is. In fact, if I were Ziz I'd add a little putty to round off the flat top of McCoy's flat noggin, too.
Heh. The irony of it is that I originally got into figure kits because I wanted a kit style I thought I could build "straight from the box" without obsessing over accurizing and details like on ships and vehicles.normlbd said:Ziz, your McCoy is definately going to look like the real McCoy. I'd like to see all 4 when you're done. I don't get into accurizing kits myself. I build 'em straight from the box.
Unless you bought it during the initial release, you overpaid. I got the Kirk/Bones/Scotty 3 pack for $10, and found Spock at a liquidators for $3.99.True, the kit doesn't really look like Bones, but then I only spent $15 for it.
I just shaved off and repositioned the one from the kit. At first it looked a little too small. Once I modified the body, it didn't look as bad.I spend all day at work obsessing over details so I don't worry about it during hobby time. Although I'm not at all happy with the way the science insiginia on his tunic looks. I'll redo it when I do the other 3.
Just so you know, I wasn't suggesting that you should. It would have been nice if the kit's sculptor had obsessed over the details, though...normlbd said:...I spend all day at work obsessing over details so I don't worry about it during hobby time. JB
