I'm pretty much done with my latest model kit. It is a Polar Lights Kit of the Headless Horseman. I'm not completely happy with the ground paint job, so I'll probably play a bit more with that. Plus I need to switch up the browns on the posts, ax and tree. Every time I tried to mix a brown, it got too muddy looking, so I just ordered the colors I wanted!! LOL!!!

I changed it up from what it supposed to be. It's supposed to be from the Sleepy Hollow movie. In other words, black on black on black. Black outfit, black cape and black horse - boring. Besides, I liked the book a TON more than the movie. When I read "Legend of Sleepy Hollow" as a kid, I sat on the edge of my seat with every page!! I honestly think it was the first "horror" type book I ever read and it fired my thirst for more!!!

So, I painted the horseman as he was betrayed in the book - a Hessian soldier. Now, there are different Hessian outfits and the one I liked best was for the Hessian Jaegar. They were the light infantry, scouts, runners, skirmishers and sharpshooters. And I went with a typical quarter horse color, sorrel (maybe chestnut), with white socks and face. I modified the ax and put it into a post. I only included 2 of the 4 or 5 pumpkins. I plan on getting a head (preferably with hair) from an 8" figure and putting that in his hand. That may take a while. I'm not paying $10-$15 for a head off of eBay!!!

Anyways, I hope you like it. My next project should be arriving later today or Monday.

your modeling skills are superb and the color choices are quite well executed.....do you seal your work with a sealer to reduce the gloss and give a more lifelike appearance

@Darkseid_of_town Thanks for the compliments. I do not use any type of sealer or clearcoat, although I do plan to do that to the headless horseman once I get it totally finished. I've actually found that using acrylic artists' paints works just as well, if not better, than model paints. Plus, most of the artists' (or even craft) paints are water based, so thinning the paint and cleanup are a lot easier. And, artists' or craft paints are a LOT cheaper than model paints!! I do have a semi-gloss (or satin) acrylic clearcoat the I plan on using.

A sealed copy of The Legend of the Mystical Ninja for the SNES. One of my favorite games from the early 90’s. It took a little of time to remove a twenty five+ yr-old price tag on this without damaging the plastic. Thanks, goo gone.

I 3D printed these for my Grandson for a Halloween costume..
the Helmet and the Gun
They're first sealed with a epoxy sealer then colored with water base acrylic paints
applied with a airbrush. Living in humid Florida I add a drop or two of alcohol to speed the drying process..

@Gotlift That is pretty awesome!!! Did you print them in pieces and then assemble them? And I wish I could airbrush paint. For the amount that I would do, I just can't justify the expense and upkeep. And honestly, I'd buy a 3D printer first!!! There is SO much I would make with thing!!! LOL!!!

Yes these were printed in pieces then glued together with super glue. Then I use bondo to fill the cracks. I have a larger printer. But still had to print in pieces. I’ve printed a 13 inch hulk for him and a 14 inch Wonder Woman (with base)in one piece For the granddaughter. I’ll take a couple of pictures and post them.

@Gotlift Those are incredible!!! Thanks for sharing those! TBH, I think someone 3D printing, assembling and painting a figure is a heck of a lot cooler than any Sideshow or Diamond Select figure could ever be!!!!

I love the composition and shading on the splash page. I was going to ask if it was Mike Grell, but I see Ed Hannigan & Dick Giordano are credited with the art.

If you look close Mike wrote I did not draw these pages

Coolest thing I have to show right now is this project. Took one wall of a walk-in closet and built these comic box cubbyholes. The bottom 42 of them sized for silver-modern books, the top six for slabs/GA/magazine boxes. Every comic now inventoried, organized, bagged, boarded and boxed.

I've also cut 48 individual doors, one for each cubby. Each door will have two cardholders mounted on the front, with print-outs of the cover of the first and last comic in the box behind it.

Pleased with the construction. No nails or screws; everything is held together with dowels and pressure, and is sturdy enough you could climb the thing.

@CatCovers Looks nice. I would like to recommend a simple way to identify your boxes. I use these peel and stick index card holders. I can easliy change them out or add extra smaller note on the index card too. I just bought another pack of 100 On-Line for $17.99 plus shipping from Juvo+ These hold standard 5" × 3" index cards.
