If this is your first attempt well done! Creative idea with painting the figure with glow paint. Keep in mind that although figure kits are usually easy to build them nice, painting the figures is another story. When I first looked at this review I thought it was a factory paint job, so well done.

BTW I checked out your myspace and I liked your idea for your 2008 film schedule. Did you watch all those films each day?

I Like parts of Godard films as well but his films can get slow at times. They all seem to have one great technique in each film but I don't give too much for his love for communism. Alphaville was the first film I saw and I loved it, it is his best. He also hat really good looking women in his films as leads.

kit building

Thanks for the kind words, Leonardo! I should add, however, that Sanjeev did help me get started on this and I did the torso and most of the head sort of under his supervision. But I finished the hair, boots, base and glow on my own. So, thanks to him as well.

About the movies, you mean my movie viewing log? That's an idea I actually stole from Tom Franck, who I believe stole it in turn from Dan Waters, writer of "Heathers" and writer/director of "Sex and Death 101" (That dude watches a ton of movies each year. A TON.). I find it helps keep me watching movies regularly as I like to have roughtly 250-300 each year. Plus, it prevents me from accidentally starting to watch a movie I've already seen! If I'm not sure about one, I check the list. I can't tell you how many times I've done that and said "oh yeah, I did see that one and I saw it on such and such a date.. My memory is awful...LOL

Wow, this came out great! I

Wow, this came out great! I got a chance to see this thing in person very briefly at JoshB's house, but the lighting wasn't good and there were plenty of distractions about. These pics actually came out pretty brilliantly!

And for the record, all I did was offer a few pointers. Dave did all the work!

The rest of the details came out great and the glow came out better than I would've imagined!
