This is a very BIG Kit It was produced by Resin from the Grave back in the 90's
it is 1/6 scale Igore is about 12", and Frank is about 14" (he weighs a ton)
the base is very large and detailed. I've toned down Igore's hair with some
darker browns so I hope it looks more natural. Randy Bowen sculpted Igor
BTW!

OH NO MITCH, I've seen a Color Pic of Lon Jr. as The Wolfman (from A&C Meet Frank) and the Fur on him actually looks like your Bela Kinda Reddish.So I personally thought thats what you were going for.You achived a realism that is Uncanny! I hope you didn't tone it down Too much.

Look forward to much more,

LON/JOHN

Thanks for the comments! I heard Igor's hair was red, that's why I painted it that way. I would LOVE to see that color photo of the Wolfman. Can you post It?!!

Mitch- you'll have to go to www.monsterkid.com this is like an Online "Famous Monsters" And this Site has the Color Wolfie as the Cover Pic Sorry I can't get ya' DIRECTLY to it.

I think they refered to it as "Crepe" Hair? Like Lon Sr. wore in "London After Midnight,So PLEASE Don't think I'm Citiquing your Work I actually want my Vamprire Lon to have that Very same Coloring as you do with Igor. Well again well worth Observing at least I can see What these pieces can be Detailed like, IF, done by a Master Craftsman such as yourself

Thanks , John for your kind words . Tonight I'll round up the names of the colors I use on the hair, and I'll let you know how I did it. I do use Krylon Brown
primer on my human faces (I used it on the entire Ygor figure).

Wonderful job on the kits.

But something is bothering me about the original sculpt: From this angle, Frankie looks eerily like an undead Garrison Keillor! :lol:

YES, I SEE IT!!!
ACTUALLY, a different sculptor did Frank, but I've done more work on him to
make him look more like Karloff.

you can go to the photo album- Go to the top of the right hand corner of the
page and click on it. then look under models you can see them there.
