Eaglemoss Wolverine: Part 4 - Update

Hi everyone,

Today I have a quick update regarding my ongoing Wolverine project.  Even though you might think I am dragging my feet with this one, the truth is a completely different picture.

Unfortunately, as much as I wanted to finish this, other projects took precedence.  Rather than rushing through this model and making a mess of things, I took the decision to work on it, on the side, at a pace that would bring good results.  After all, the objective was to make the figure look better than the way I bought it.  I think the goal is slowly being achieved.

I have finally finished painting up the wall section that I built.  All it needs now are a few more details, which I will do after I finish painting up the model.



The next part I needed to do work on was the base.  Nothing special, as this base is a stock base bought from Andrea Miniatures.  What I needed to do was add some felt underneath and attach the label of authenticity that comes with the original model in the form of a sticker.

Attaching this sticker is a very important thing to do.  The reason is that it was sold as a collectable item and hence proves that the model is not a copy.  Even though I am not interested in the value of the collectable, I like to know that it is an original, albeit badly made original.
Finally I did some work on the model itself.  In previous articles, I mentioned  that this model was badly cast and I also posted pictures proving this.  The paint job has helped to cover up a lot of the defects and helped to better show the work of the sculptor.

The first step was to choose the basic colours of the model and  paint it up respectfully.  I like doing this.  It gives me a better view of how the model will end up once finished.
Over the week I have slowly painted up the highlights ad shadows of the skin parts, as well as the yellow and blue of the suit.  Today I have just finished the black part of the mask. 

What is left are the gloves and the boots and then he will be ready to attach to the base.
Once again that is all for this week.  I will be back next weekend with another post, but I am not sure what to post next.  It will be either the beginning of another series of articles or the conclusion of this one.  Only time will tell.

Until then farewell and good health to one and all.

  2. Thanks! I can't wait to get it finished so I can start 'The Thing', also from Eaglemoss. The model is a better cast than Wolverine. At least on first inspection.
