Thanks. That Bride at the top all in red is one of my favorites, I really like the way it came out.

Here are some portraits I did of my monster soakies.

Those pictures are probably singlehandedly responsible for the upsurge in support for the Bride of Frankenstein in the Aurora model kit poll!

Hep--- I don't know if that's true, but if people are enjoying my photo's then I'm happy.
Anyway, I just posted some of my Bride photo's in the model kit section.

Pretty neat photos, especially the Bride pics. Her sculpt is probably the best actor likeness of the Aurora series, but it takes good close-up photography to appreciate it.

Thanks Ray. Yeah, the Aurora kit is a nice sculpt and a fun kit to put together with all the lab stuff and severed hand and arm and everything.

I thought the lighting and colors on this one was more like a James Bama Doc Savage paperback book cover, so I did this...

Now that you mention it, it does look like a Sinbad skeleton, just add a sword or shield. I've been a Harryhausen fan for as long as I can remember.

Here's some more of my MPC Pop-Top Horrors. I'm missing the Witch from my set so you won't see her here. Still looking for one.

Vampire.


Vampire again.


Executioner.


Executioner again.


Wolfman.


Monster.


Monster again. Hope you like 'em.

Some of my toys were begging to be photographed, so I thought you might like to look at them.

This first photo is a 1963 blue Marx Hunchback.



This is a 1963 blue Marx Frankenstein.



This is a 1963 blue Marx Creature. For this photo I manipulated the contrast and the colors.



This is one of my favorites. This is the same blue Creature. I manipulated the background, contrast, and color.



This is a manipulated 1963 blue Marx Wolf Man.


wow these are awesome!
