    Will definitely be keeping my eyes open for those releases.

    Great job on this kit.
    I can't tell from the angle, but did you do the seam work on it?
    I started this kit a while back, thinking it would be a nice quick build. When I saw the seams though, it kind of put the brakes on the project. Lots of detail to resculpt in that hair.
    I did a little bit of seam work. I'm not too picky about seams. I eliminate them when possible, minimize them when not, and sometimes you just have to live with them. To me they're not worth sacrificing any sculpted detail.

    Neat! Did you leave any glow showing in the eyes or teeth? That would be a cool effect mixed with the realistic paints.
    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    No...the eyes are so small and the teeth are mostly hidden, so I just painted everything. I will probably just put together an unpainted one at some point to enjoy the glow!

    I've always wondered how these kits would looked with washes wiped off to bring out the detail but still let them glow... I think that's how I might try to build them up. Just a few fully-painted outlines or details.
