I usually have several projects going, aside from my other businesses, so I never go from start to finish on any one piece. I jump around to prevent the burn out factor, but still meet clients deadlines.

I used to paint the individual parts of my Aurora kits prior to glueing them together when I was a kid. Do any of you pro fellows still do it that way?

Stunning paintwork on the Phantom and Wolfman. I love how you have painted the Phantom's face and his cloak. The rocks on both kits look amazing and lifelike.

The Phantom! ...and the Wolfman.

Wonderful job on these kits -- some of the best I've seen.

I think the Wolf Man is my favorite.

That's certainly up there with the very best Draculas I've ever seen.

Here's a scan of the ad for the Aurora Batman kit that ran on the back of DC comic books cover dated June 1966:

My favorite is the Phantom, any chance of getting a close-up of his face?

Sorry, mate...those were shipped off to the collector some time ago, so unless I do another one, that's the only pic available at this time.

I've always wondered how the base of the Mummy kit should be coloured. Should the polished steps be a different colour than the background rock? What colour should the pottery be? Should it be all one colour?

When I was a kid I think I painted the polished steps and the pottery black and the background rock grey; all glossy colours of course. The cobra I painted a metallic green, with red eyes.

I haven't assembled a kit since I was a kid, and I believe the correct way would be to paint then assemble, but I never had the patience for that as a kid. My folks would always tell me to do it that way, but I wanted to build the darn thing!! LOL!!!
