I pretty much followed the painting instructions from the kit using Vallejo acrylics both airbrushed and by hand. The sofa was a mix of red and mahogany for the leather and yellow ochre/mahogany for the wood which was then oversprayed with mahogany/burnt umber for the dark areas. Toonarmy over on resin illuminati explained the process for the nameplate painting and the colour for the bride was inspired by a mike hill sculpture of Elsa Lanchester.

Looks great! Love it! And color me old school, but I think I'm going to go green with my Monster, too. You've got some nice subtleties going on with the skin tones on yours!

Perfect choices for skin tones. The paint job does an excellent job of pulling the whole scene together. :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

I need to try Vallejo paint; I see some beautiful work done with these paints. I am still on the fence about a BW or color version of this kit. Thanks for the information on the other site. Again, fantastic work!

Thanks for the comments chaps. Anyone who hasn't invested yet, go and get one of these kits. It is without a doubt the most fantastic styrene figure kit I have built, well engineered and beautifully sculpted.

PS WhittlePlastic,
this is the first time I have used Vallejo and I am very impressed. They seem to have more "depth" of colour than the Tamiya paints I usually use.
Also, their matt varnish is by far the best I have ever used, flat, even and non yellow. Bloody marvellous stuff.
