Hi Everyone,

It’s been quite a long time since I posted here. Everyone’s version of a 6in scale Christopher Reeve Superman here is so cool that I got inspired to create a version. This one uses a Crisis On Infinite Earths, Earth 2 Superman body for a closer realistic appearance to go along with that realistic sculpt of a New Krypton Superman head. Repainted the head to get a better flesh tone and used craft porcelain to fill in the neck gaps from removing the plastic cape, then added a cloth cape with a cloth yellow S. Sculpted a new belt and buckle, and added new boot tops. Printed the S shield on sticker paper, sealed it with matte medium, and then painted over it. The Superman base is from the Classic Silver Age Superman line. The Fortress base was borrowed from my son's artic ice playset. Thanks for taking a look and for any comments. Aloha!

VERY NICE!!! It photographs well. the lines are clean... altogether flawless. I dig every new version I see popping up... I just packaged my first version & donated it to the Super Museum here in Metropolis. Now it will be immortalized with stacks of random stuff and authentic props... DIG IT!!!! just web search "geeksummit" in any browser and find my blog.

Wow! This is probably one of the best Chris Reeve Supes out there, that looks the MOST like Chris Reeve. The figure's body style is very similar to Reeve's and hugs the suit much more 'movie accurately'. Well done!! -Fitz
