  1. Hi all, I picked this kit up off eBay last year at a good price, I will be building a diorama as a follow up to my previous build a few years back. This is a huge kit; shortly after buying it I found a pair of resin replacement heads, which look far more accurate than the kit offerings. I hope to have this build completed by the autumn. Included are some photos of my previous build and I have a video of it on my YouTube channel (Skyray Models) for anyone interested.
  2. "She's ALIVE!!!!". Won this kit off eBay this week, a few parts missing but nothing I can't scratchbuild. I'm going to try and make a screen capture diorama and I will be adding lots of extra props and lighting.
  3. On the first of January 1818 "Frankenstein,or the modern Prometheus" was published ,and with it,one could argue the birth of the science fiction era,In 1983 acclaimed American illustrator Bernie Wrightson,with Marvel comics, released the novel with his beautiful illustrations ,a hardback version was released in 1983 and 2008. In 1995 Sideshow released a vinyl model of the creature and its creator,a kit that these days commands an extremely high price(usually about £500.00)and even at the time was prohibitively expensive ,So imagine my surprise when in Morecambe market (of all places) I came across a bagged version with no box or instructions for sale for £75.00,Not having been born yesterday,my suspicion was aroused to the legitimacy of the kit,the dealer claimed he had bought it as part of a job lot,and had no idea of its Provence ,My cynicism got £25.00 knocked off the price,so home it came. Initial inspection seemed to confirm my fears that this was a knock off with badly warped pieces,especially the base(however further research showed that this was a problem with the original kit as well) So into the cupboard it went. Five long years passed before I plucked up the courage to have a go at this vinyl monstrosity. Having wrestled with what to do about the base,and having tried various ways to strengthen it (all dismal failures) I decided to go for the nuclear option,that was to replace the base with a real wooden one and cut out all the features from the vinyl base and re-site on the new base. Having gone better than anticipated I began building up the figures and features(which went surprisingly well,So once again unsure on the models legitimacy) One of the spurs to get me building this kit was the awareness that Bernie Wrightson died last year,i had always greatly admired his skills as an artist,not only on Frankenstein,but Swamp Thing,and the Stephen King short story "Cycle of the Werewolf"
  4. Hi guys, this is the final reveal pictures of the Bride of Frankenstein screen capture diorama. I scratch built a large part of this project and had a lot of fun adding all the effects and extra props to make up the laboratory, also just in time for Halloween LOL! Enjoy the pics. Finally, you can see my work in progress in the link below.
  5. Here is my finished Christmas present that my fantastic boyfriend bought for me. I love the novel and have studied it at A Level and now I teach it to my GCSE students. I enjoyed this kit, it was VERY easy to build and went together easily. My favourite thing is figure painting so the building part is necessary but not my favourite pastime. I am pleased with the finished result and, if I was to do it again, I would consider doing a black and white version which would be tricky but interesting.
