kngfu studios WIP

Posted in Custom Workstation

I don't actually have a studio, but I thought it made the thread sound cooler. In the 90's I did a bunch of vinyl and resin models, but fell out of the hobby when they became too expensive and the time I needed to dedicate towards the work became scarce. I actually used to do them at work, as I was a CT technologist and when there weren't patients on the schedule, there were models. Getting into action figure collecting again in the last few years, has reignited my itch to paint. So, I started out doing crafts with the kids. That led to drawing, then painting, and what I call action figure restoration. I go to flea markets, yard and rummage sales and buy cheap action figures and repaint them for the kids and myself. Mostly myself, the kids make a good excuse for the buying of toys. Since finding this sight and trolling around I decided I should put up some of the stuff the kids and I have been working on. Here goes:

9th Doctor bash with custom head sculpt


I still don't like the eye and skin paint job, so he may be redone. The jacket is also temporary until I can find a better U-boat captain one.

Craig Bond bash

Again I need to work on skintone and eyes.

N'Synch bobblehead that I picked up at the Goodwill for .99 cents. My daughter and I painted him up.



Vinyl Bruce Lee figure



Real Ghostbusters Egon and Ray that I tried to restore with custom packs



Young Justice Robin from a ML Johnny Storm

Thanks, it's sourly indeed. A update. I thought the Internet (Comcast ) was broken but it turns out it was a conflict between chrome and osx? So hopefully the fix worked and I can update tomorrow or this weekend.

Thanks again. He is some bad guy from a cartoon called THE SECRET SATURDAYS. I never saw it but he reminded me of a BTAS Bane. he was really cheap in a two pack with a soon to be Doc Savage custom.
