Re: THE SHINING- 1;6 Resin kit Plan 9

As a massive Stephen King fan models based on his books are few and far between. Apart from `Christine` this Jack Nicholson figure is only a handful of kits I`ve seen.

I`m not sure about the likeness- once some primer is on it may be better to tell if the sculpt has captured him. With time it looks like the resin has degraded somewhat but it should be ok- I may lose the base and go for the film end scene in the maze. His arm and axe are still in the box by the way!

Incidentally, although the movie looks great the book is far better.

Smidge of progress- basic colours on- good job the feet are supposed to be hidden by snow- those feet castings, woah!

Like others on the site basic painting accompanied by Nirvana and Rammstein, detail work and its all dropped down to The Cure; Standing on a Beach. Ahhh, the the joys of a day off......

Finished. Base is tissue box with original base inside. Snow is baking soda and some blood on background for a bit of added interest.

Really nice.  Love the nods to the movie with the typing and the carpet.
