Remains: Dragnuts and Goblins

0

Today we celebrated my Dad’s birthday by going to see Labyrinth on the big screen. A wonderful tribute to David Bowie by the theater but also a really memorable way to celebrate with my Dad as well. He was the one who first introduced me to Labyrinth as a young batling (it came out when I was 5 and I think I literally wore out the VHS) and to this day it is still my all time favorite movie (thank God DVDs hold up so well ha ha). To see it on the big screen 30 years later was unforgettable.

We also gave him his birthday gift today. It was another model project I did with my husband, Frank. He built it, I painted it and Dad loved it!

It is of Big Daddy Roth’s Drag Nut complete with Monster and Rat Fink. My Dad set it up as soon as he got home and sent me this picture. I of course immediately added it to the Remains of my portfolio site.

Remains: 1962 Aurora Dracula Model

0

So remember that box of Aurora Universal Monster models my husband brought home for us to reconstruct and bring back from the dead? Well we finished another one…… Dracula.

This is how it was when we got it….

This is how it looked after I cleaned it, sprayed it with a primer and started to paint it….

FOTAB1B

And this is how it looked after I finished painting it and my husband played Dr. Frankenstein and put him back together. I then did a few paint touch ups and then he did a nice spray laquer over all of it.

And here it is displayed in our dining room next to the Frankenstein one we finished earlier this year.

We gave the Creature from the Black Lagoon away as a gift to one of our tattoo artists so we plan to be on the look out for another one for our own collection. The last one we have in the box to reconstruct is the Wolfman!

Stay Spooky!
