I'm takin' Dave M.'s advice and building a model. I find it's much more fun than sitting around worrying about what might or might not happen.....:rolleyes:

Here's a shot of my PL Munster's Living Room in progress...

That's good advice. I can relax now knowing Dave still has input about the refit and his ideas for improving the Wonder Woman kit. The PL Booth said Dave was the heart and soul of Polar Lights so I'm glad thats still there. Now I'll be quiet.

Thanks, BatToys! I knew you weren't trying to stir trouble. Now then, got any advice for me on fixing Lily's makeup? (I guess I should get tips on that from my wife and daughters!) :p

Lilly looks like she needs a whole new face-lift! WOW,,is that molded like that? Her top of her nose looks alittle misplaced!

Great advise to everyone...thanks Dave!

Larry,

Looks great! Thanks for the pics and sharing!

These figures are very small and tough to see as well.

You should see how shakey my hands are at my age...:freak:
Gotta use small brush tips too!

GREAT stuff Larry!!!

For makeup, I usually use artists pastels on the upper eyelids and cheeks.
Works pretty good.

BTW: You're doing a great job, can't wait to see it finished.

Larry,


I've been a little intimidated to take this one down out of my closet because I've heard that it's one of the most difficult kits to paint. What's your opinion now that you well into it?

Afilmdude, this is actually a simple kit, much simpler than some others I've built. The challenge comes in the painting, because the Munsters was broadcast in black-and-white, and the color shots from that time look "odd" in comparison.


Like the Creature from the Black Lagoon, this is one kit that would really be spiffy if painted in the correct grey shades, as seen on TV!

Well, I'm taking some much needed "Me Time" & building as well. I'm finishing up the Enterprise, 1st pilot version. (2nd & Production are in progress as well!) Right now, I'm putting on the decals & for the first time I'm using Micro Sol & Set. Man, I love this stuff! Frelling brilliant results!! When I get some decal shots printed & scanned, I'll post 'em, but for now, here's a couple shots of it painted up. Sorry for the quality- guess next time I'll have to open up the apeture a bit more! :rolleyes:

I also did a bit of a mod on her to match the three footer's flat bottom of the saucer. I used this photo for a reference:

Prince of Styrene II: Your Enterprise looks awesome! I've been using Micro Sol and Set for years, and I agree; the stuff is great! Hope to see all the Enterprises when they are done.
