MY War of the Colossal Beast - Jeff Yagher WIP
« on: January 10, 2011, 06:12:42 PM »
Hi guys...
...Here's a few shots of my War of the Colossal Beast WIP ....I'm more of a styrene guy, but over the past few years I've also taken a liking for Resin...
This kit is a lot of fun...I've tried my hand at a 'forced perspective' here and did a little kitbashing too...
I'm still working on the figure and so I haven't got the proper tension on the electrical cables yet...Oh and I added to the base in order to put another electrical tower in the scene...
Hope you like...























I should be slinging some paint on the  Beast this week
Cheers
Mcdee

Looks AMAZINGLY COLOSSAL already! I've got to go away for a few days, so look forward to seeing it finished when I get back. :)

Your forced perspective is working out beautifully. Keep us posted!
You knew the job was dangerous when you took it, Fred.

Thanks guys :D I'm working on him right now...1st coat of flesh and basework...in the photos I published the foreground looks Ballpark green but in fact it is a darker green...the camera seemed to add a technicolor aspect to the scene...I'm going to add some texture to it and use a different light source to take the next series of photos...also had to drill a hole through his clenched fist in order to run the high tension cables through...if you are going to attempt this maneuver...remember to hold your tongue the right way and keep your eyes closed!

That looks fantastic! I need to repaint and repair my old Billiken Collosal Beast. Years ago I had a diorama base for him with chains and tanks, but that didn't last. I want to make a new base for him, possibly with the school bus, one of these days.
Crazy am I? We'll see if I'm crazy or not!

I've got this one in the pile to do. I hate drilling holes in hands for stuff! You just hope you don't screw it up.

Thanks Tom I really appreciate those nice words
This is a real fun kit and I really hope Jeff considers sculpting more Aurora-like kits !
Right now I'm working on Mikes' Escape from Death Valley/the Vulture kit...another incredible kit done in the old Aurora style...
Man lovin these kits

Thanks Tom and Lester !
This is simply one of the best Resin kits I've ever built.
Man that Jeff Yagher is awesome!
I'd like to see him do more kits along the Aurora line :D
