It feels like years since I've had the time to actually finish a model kit (between work and the kids) so when I do get some free time, I usually work on 2 or more at a time.
This was the case with these kits that I just finished.

The James Bama Wolfman by Monsters in Motion.

The biggest (only) problem that I had with this one was trying to paint it to look like the box art.
On the box it shows purple lighting along with a purple sky.
Well, I couldn't do the sky but I did the best I could with the general lighting effects.

I also just finished Wonder Woman from Retro Resin.

Yes, I did add my own stars on her shorts and I'm sorry.
My hands just would not cooperate with the tiny little original stars on her shorts.
If you've painted this kit and were able to paint those stinking stars...
You're a better modeler than I am, that's for sure.

Enjoy the pictures.

Trendon,

EXCELLENT! Great job on both of these kits! What a GREAT looking WOLFMAN too! You make me want to break down and buy those BAMA monster kits from MiM...but they are just so DANG expensive! Gene does a great job at RR with his Aurora kits too. I've got his WW in the pile just waiting for the right time to start assembly on her.

MMM

Thanks guys for the kind words.
I'm glad that you all liked the pictures.

Beck, I'd like to see pictures of your Dr J when he's finished.

Thanks again,
Mike

OK, Trendon, NOW ya did it....

.. ya made me have to order both that Wolf Man kit AND the "Bama" Phantom kit.... :)
LOL!:lol:
Considering how expensive these kits are, I'll apologize.

In all seriousness, the rumor is that the next kit in this line will be the Dr. Jekyll as Mr. Hyde kit.
I'm actually surprised that they (Monsters in Motion) didn't do that one sooner based on the fact that most people like the Aurora Jekyll box art more that the actual Aurora kit.

Eh... no apology needed. I'm making up for the years when I saw cool kits like that & couldn't afford them. :) A Bama-style Jekyll/Hyde would be cool... I'd also like to see a Bama-style Dracula. That was one of his best Aurora monster paintings, IMO.

I agree that I too would like to see a Bama Dracula made as well.

DinoMike, I have been teetering also about getting these kits thanks to TRENDON's awesome build-ups. I just have to scrape together the cash for them....this is tough for me as school is starting soon and the kids need a new pair of shoes!
