Son of Frankenstein
Monster: vinyl, Geometric // Igor: Mike Hill through Village Comics, resin // base: resin, Geometric
WOW! Igor was absolutely the perfect way to fill this diorama!
Thanks to Fritz (the Headless Hearseman) for giving him up!
Lugosi was SO malevolent in this film.
The close-up of Karloff shows that I re-painted the face using very few colors.
I got the idea from watching the film again - Jack Pierce really hurried through the makeup this time. He didn't use much shadowing or depth.
XOFacto, sculpted by Jeff Yagher
1/6 scale, resin
Excellent model, excellent casting! I got it for a good price through the Clubhouse (thanks again, Greg!)
Yeow! Looney Tunes!
I'll be using him in a huge diorama, so I didn't need the base. I also needed a torch instead of a whip, so I made one out of Alves.
Let this be a lesson - you pay someone minimum wage, they don't take pride in their work. They mistakenly grab the abnormal brain, etc.....
1/7th scale, resin
from Kitkong's Mansion
This thing is a beast! It took forever to build and paint, with lots of roadblocks and dead ends along the way.
But wow, was it worth the effort!
I usually don't go for girl models or for variations on the classic horror icons, but this one knocked me out and became a "must-have" for me.
THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN
Moebius, 1/8th scale, styrene, sculpted by Jeff Yagher
This is probably the most beautiful styrene model I've ever seen.
The bottles were a nightmare, though.
What an expression on Karloff's face....
....and also on the face of the Bride. I have a feeling this date is not going to go well...
1/4 scale, hollow-cast resin (head and hands are solid-cast) KitKong Mansion -this is a BIG model!
Nice base, too - excellent nameplate!
Here's a side-by-side size comparison between the Aurora Frankenstein and this behemoth:
Here's what it looks like in my living room. It's too big for the Model Museum room:
1/6th scale, vinyl, Horizon
"Crazy, Am I?" from Monsters In Motion (Colin Clive)
1/6th scale, resin:
The Bride of Frankenstein
1/6 scale, resin, scratch-built table:
"Frankenstein", 1/8 scale styrene, Moebius Models
with replacement head, extra trunk and ceiling piece, scratch-built back wall through the doorway.
BIG FRANKY! with a BIG bottle of wine!
(but alas, with no neck bolts! I lost them!)
Old faithful, from Aurora:
