CARTOON BEATLES
Unknown maker, resin, about six inches high.



TOO cute! I actually had a lot of fun painting these.


Shown below are resin recasts of four separate styrene plastic models originally produced by Revell during the 1964 Beatlemania days.
Ringo only came with a snare drum, so I went hunting for a drumset. I found this one on eBay for $10; it was already mounted on the maroon velvet riser.
I also added a bit of hair to John because his hairline seemed awfully high on the original model.
The background is a lucite box I built which contains a flourescent light.
The light kind of washed out the photographs I took, so I only have a few photos with the light on.

 

 



Ringo's tom tom fell over while I was photographing this and I never noticed. Sorry!
