The Evil Twin finally finished up his exciting model kit at some point last week, but I'm just now getting around to posting about it.
I was able to get a few shots of it during the painting process.
Random parts in the workshop room:
A close up of his head:
The finished product:
He is 19 inches high and a very large model. Can you imagine the inner child who wanted this kit so much as a 9 year old finally getting a chance to build and paint it as a nearly 50 year old professional designer? The Evil Twin's talents surprise me, even after 17 years of knowing and loving him.
And, I know... I don't really "get" his love for these things, but seeing the love and detail he brings to each one is enough for me.
I'm going to leave you all with 4 more pictures of our OLD collections. It makes the stuff we saw last week just pale in comparison. Feel free to click on each photo to "embiggen" and take a tour of the massive amount of TOYS!
We DO NOT own these things presently. The Evil Twin goes through phases where he'll collect one sort of thing, like advertising figures, pez, and soakie bottles, then he'll sell them all on eBay.
We don't own this stuff, either anymore:
Also sold on eBay:
And more of the FORMER collection:
Believe it or not, the collections we had then were in a much smaller house (like, half the size) of the house we have now. Thank goodness for eBay and such.
Now, we only have thousands of DVDs and CDs and a few interesting toy collections. I'll leave you with one more pic I just happen to love.
It's Bossy Bear!
PS. Since so many commenters have asked about the "Milk Chocolate" figure, the Evil Twin sent me this information:
Since people keep asking, we really need to give Spencer Davis a p-p-plug. Here’s the URL to his site where he sells the Booty Babe sculptures:
Booty Babe Art NSFW
You can tell your readers that I HIGHLY recommend dealing with him, and that I consider the $70 or so spent on Milk Chocolate was the best 70 bucks I ever spent, and that the package came packed like it could withstand a nuclear blast. I can’t rave enough about the quality of his work and his customer service ethic. Aside from being a talented artist he’s also one hell of a nice guy!
So, that's from the Evil Twin. He says these are limited edition sculptures and Milk Chocolate is already sold out. But, you can check out the other sculptures!
