Even MORE Model Kit Madness: Nosferatu
My flurry of model kit building and painting looks to be done for a while, as it's time to get back to other projects. So here are pics of my latest build-up -- Monarch Models' "Nosferatu" -- from the classic silent horror film. Now it's back to the drawing board!

For quite some time I was very active in the segment of the model building hobby known as figure kits -- or sometimes resin kits -- or even "garage" kits -- as the models in question are often created by hand in someone's garage -- casting a small scale figural sculpt in resin using silicone rubber molds. In recent years, my teaching and comic book schedule has mostly kept me away from the modeling table. However, upon getting my hands on this amazing kit, I couldn't resist getting back in the swing and building and painting it right away. This is Princess Aura as portrayed by Ornella Muti in the 1980 film version of "Flash Gordon." The kit was produced by Charlie "Mad Dog" Dunton and sculpted by Chuck "2 Bit" Needham. For my money, there's no better sculpted kit ever produced in the hobby. It features an amazing likeness and an eerily life-like like quality. The pose and anatomy are spot on -- and the attention to detail is stunning. It was a pleasure to assemble and paint, and I'm thrilled to finally have this one on my shelf.

"Switchblade Siren" pin-up sculpture
Here's a project that's been in the works for quite some time. This is a licensed figurine of pin-up model Bernie (Bernadette) Dexter -- based on her "Switchblade Siren" photo shoot. I'll be producing a limited edition of hand-painted figures. This is the first casting from my polymer clay and wax sculpture -- primed and ready for painting -- and then fully painted. I'm not taking orders yet -- and it'll be a little while before I'm geared up to produce the whole run -- but I couldn't resist showing this piece to the world. She's made of resin, and with base, is about 9 1/2 inches tall.
