The Frankenstein Monster according to Tony McVey...


One more classic from the dungeons of +17 years of collecting and painting Garagekits: Famous SPFX artist Tony McVey's take on the Frankenstein Monster. A limited edition 1:6 scale resin figure from ancient 1996/97. He cleverly incorporated the looks of actor Rondo Hatton instead of Karloff into his design making it quite unique. It's still one of my favorite GK figures. My paintjob is not the greatest anymore, but after such a long time it would be a shame if your skills haven't improved over the years ?!



See more of Mr. McVey's terrific sculptures here. If you're lucky you can catch them sometimes on Ebay.

  1. Heh--wonder if Rondo Hatton was on Tony's mind when he did this. Great paints as usual.
