This years Halloween build. The Great White Shark kit by Pegasus Models. The shark and the scuba diver are molded in vinyl so they require CA glue for assembly. The shark cage is molded in styrene. I started on the shark first and I have it assembled and painted. It has some significant seams that needed putty fill and sanding. After that I primed it and used craft paints through my airbrush to do the main body colors. The mouth and teeth were done by hand painting. If you look closely you'll notice I put a rough texture on it's skin like the real thing. I did this by fogging on testors dull coat from a distance and force drying it with my heat gun as soon as I sprayed it on. Not too bad for the first shark I've ever painted! Up next, battle damage the shark cage and assemble and paint the scuba diver.

My Halloween build is the Wolfman figure sculpted by Jeff Yagher. I got this resin kit from MonstersInMotion and it's very well made. I always get good results ordering Jeff Yagher figure kits from them. This is one of the larger figure models I have done and it's well over 12 inches tall. It came with a base, a tree thing, the Wolfman body, his claws and his head. The nice thing about these more finished resin kits is that you can spend time on the painting, shading and details.

After saying that, I had to fix the base, because it was really plain and had no details to make it seem real. I added some grass leftover from another kit and dripped some clear resin in places to make it seem wet. I glued some pebbles onto the base to give it some texture. Those are from my backyard. The paint is regular acrylic.

Final pics of my Jaws tribute build. I finished up the diver by painting him up to look like the Hooper character and then built the
shark cage and did some battle damage on it. i really enjoyed building the kit. I've been impressed with the quality of every Pegasus
Hobbies kit I've built. Good stuff. Happy Halloween everyone :)
