My friend Scott has had this awesome resin cast model of the "decapitator" by the talented Randy Bowen in the box, in his cube at work... for.. ever. About every year since I have known him, he has asked me if I'll put it together and paint it for him. As time passes we go back and forth between full color "realism" and maybe just a bronze (my idea- a real paint job on this bad boy would take a full month!).
Long Story short, I snuck the model out of the box without Scott knowing, and have been working on it. The model is awesome, both in scale (it stands about 15 inches or more) and in sculpting. Putting it together was fairly easy, but the resin is a bit fragile. Needless to say some hidden pinning and rebuilding with two part putty came into play.
