Thought I’d post some updated close-up shots of my Hunchback of Notre Dame model. This is the 1/8th scale Polar Lights 1999 re-issue of the Aurora kit with a Posthumous Productions resin replacement head and plaque. The kit represents Lon Chaney SR’s portral of The Hunchback from the 1927 Silent Movie.
Here are 2 early “overall” pictures taken with our old Kodak Easyshare C315 camera. There’s no close-up feature on it.
And here’s the new Close Up shots taken with our new Canon PowerShot SX10 IS
Please pay close attention to the painted details, especially on his back. I worked hard with the movie stills and various movie notations to get the look of extremely sunburnt skin as well as duplicate the ammount of hair Chaney attached to himself for the Hunchback. I also tried to get the 5:00 shadow effect on his face.
P.S. If I were to sell this model, do you think the new pictures would help sell this model on E-Bay as built by an expert model builder? (I’m not selling this one.)
