Finished Judge Anderson and took some quick photos before packing her and Dredd to go off to the client in the morning. Need to work on my flesh tones and get some better balanced lighting. Thought she was looking good and then brought her up and saw what she looked like in sunlight and she's really washed out. Sigh. She looks good from a few feet away! The last shot is the first time I really looked at the two of them next to each other - I hadn't realized how much shorter Dredd is!
I've had this kit for quite a while now, to build for a friend who's a big Judge Dredd fan. Due to circumstances I can't go into, he asked me if I could this one, along with Judge Anderson and possibly Judge Death put together and painted for him. Second vinyl figure I've worked on, and I thought some of you might find it interesting. First picture shows the components cut out and cleaned up. The second is the major subassemblies. One of the tricks with this kind of kit is to fill the lower portions with plaster to add rigidity, weight and strength to the piece. Without it, you run the risk of the vinyl buckling if it gets too hot after you've got the figure assembled. Yeah, DON'T leave these kits out in direct sunlight! and here he is with all the primary assembly complete and ready for paint:
