ABDUCTION 1919

Resin, 1/6 scale, sculpted by Thomas Kuntz, Artomic Productions

I recently (2020) decided to re-photograph this iconic model, but when I examined it, I was disappointed in the paint job, so I re-painted it from scratch
- while the whole thing was already assembled - something that I would not recommend!
The following photos are the re-paint, followed by the paint job from 20 years prior.

These are the old photos and the old paint job. I'm leaving them up because others on the internet have links to them :

 

A great shot of the entire piece.
This was a difficult model to put together due to the weight of Jane
(no offense to Lil Dagover) who is supported almost entirely by Cesare's arm while resting a bit on his hip.
You have to paint everything first, then hold Jane in place while gluing the arm on.
Then you have to putty the arm and try to cover up the seam and paint it inconspicuously.

CESARE

Resin, 1/6 scale, sculpted by Thomas Kuntz, Artomic Productions

I bought this model through a contact on the web before Thomas Kuntz of Artomic
started re-popping some of his models of German Silent Horror Films.
I didn't think I'd ever get "Abduction 1919" so I settled for the lone Cesare figure which comes with a small base and no diorama.






This kit only included the figure; I built the cabinet and the sign out of balsa wood.
All I need now is a figure of Dr. Caligari himself, but I've never seen one produced!
