Those look great! I love the black bkgnd and dim lighting! The paint comes through nice and clear, though.

All are great, but the Prisoner is amazing. Also, there is nothing "plain" about that Frankenstein, it's fantastic!

Thanks everyone for your great comments. These pieces don't seem truly "real" until I've shared them.

Super job on all!  They look great.  I'm curious about the changes you made to the Wolfman.  New head or did you modify the Aurora head?

Thanks for sharing.

Kind Regards,

Mark

It is a new head. I had an extra GEOmetric Wolf Man head and decided to use it here. Also, though it's hard to notice, those are not the original Aurora rats, they're from the Monarch Nosferatu kit.

The pics seem to have been removed from the source. PM Jim and see if he'll replace them.

'Love seeing your version of the Forgotten Prisoner. That's the only kit I've built 3 or 4 times, each time taking more weeks to super-detail paint it. But I have given all of them away many moons ago.

That kit has ALWAYS deserved a much more generous display wall and bars. 'Makes me want to act on
a hobby I could enjoy during retirement: Make deluxe, detailed backgrounds which would adapt to the foot patter of each of the Aurora monster kits - then expand to offer several more backgrounds and graveyards and other items and make them interchangeable, offer super detailed castle building blocks of several different shapes and styles........ monsters, monsters, monsters
