As Uncle Forry might have said: "Those are fang-tastic!"
If you get a chance, I'd love to see close-ups of your Aurora kits. The Phantom and Prisoner look to be really cool.

Very nice. I, too, like how you cut down Frankenstein's monsters' base.

Nice jobs, and I can see other good looking models lurking in the background. Keep posting, I never tire of seeing other builders kits, I can always get ideas for my own when I get time to build.

Thanks for the kudos, can't take credit for the base idea though.
Got the idea from another member whom I agreed with that the base
took up too much space on the shelf.

Yes, as well as the Frankenstein kit!

Great job--very creative detailing! Would love to see details closer up and a brief comment on your methods.:thumbsup:

Perfesser, Seaview the base was just cut along existing plank lines with a
razor saw and dremel with a cutting wheel. I then measured the space and
cut sheet styrene to desired lengths glued, puttied, sanded and painted.



All the painting is done with varying shades dry brushed over a base color
usually sprayed on via a rattle can. Think I used around 6 shades of brown
on the base.

Here you go Murph, took some shots of most of the Aurora monsters
on that shelf plus a few others and made up a slide show.
Click the link below to view, sorry in advance as I couldn't get them to
load in order as some are multiple views.
