Hi

This is the same kit I entered in the Aurora/Polar Lights Contest Kick Off last year.

I thought I'd post a new picture of him using my new digital camera.

You can see the colours better than on my older 35mm camera.

Here he is!

Madcap,
Model looks great...neat use of color...this is one kit I'm still missing, but I think a hobby store in Pensacola still has a couple of them left. Great work!!

Well done MCR! The green cape is a nifty change from the traditional red lined cape and works well with the very pale fleshtones.

Yeah, I read a web site that said that the typical Paris Opera capes of those eras could be Green, Blue, Purple or Maroon, all of which would be a crushed velvet. I used Metallic Jade Green from Testors for the colour and then dullcoated it.

Appropriately pasty-faced, and the green is a nice hat tip to the squarebox color scheme (even if you didn't mean it that way). I've seen the usual red lining, also black, gold and a satiny silver-white I went for years ago that didn't quite work. First time for green!

Can't tell from the pic, how'd you get the mottled granite look on the rocks?

Good work - I'm a sucker for new twists on old favs!

The rocks were all done using spray paint. I spray on a base coat of primer, covered by a gloss grey and then by a very plugged up gloss black spray bomb. Sometimes I might spray some silver over the whole thing, just to add the final glittler.
