    Always looking to add to my little Medusa collection I found this 75mm kit. Thanks for looking.


    Ignore the other Medusa to the left. ;)

    Nice base reminded my of volcanic soil...

    One of her victims. I painted the skin like rock but left the armor as
    armor. I later added a little rust to make things look old.

    Brown tone for tail, Gloss black to go under the metallics.


    Pic w/ soda can for size comparison.
    Her arm w/ arrow added. Thought the arrow would be the weak point,
    but found a drop of glue on the point firmed everything up and eliminated
    the bend in the arrow shaft.

    Thanks guys!

    H: IIRC the order was painless, as it arrived pretty promptly. I hope you find the same.
    Mike: I hear ya... everyone can't like everything. Appreciate the kind words tho. :)

    Well, it's looking good Kev.
    I received a real nice email from Sergei Kusov last night informing that they'd got my order. Also he'll print out the Chinese version of our address that I sent him and ensure it's visible on the shipping box.
    Something as simple as that almost guarantees delivery over here - and definitely guarantees repeat orders.
    El Greco in the UK do the same thing with our address and I've never had an order from them "go missing in the post", which is one of the main reasons why they get so much of my business.
    I just hope that when it arrives I can do as good a job on my example as you've done on yours....(y)

    Nice work!! And Harry, you are so right! Service always prooves itself àfter the deal. Those who really dowhat they promise plus that little extra have the best chance to stay in business. Though trust comes by foot it tends to leaves on horseback...

    Absolutely Hans.
    Service Above and Beyond is the main reason why my hobby orders can pretty much be broken down as approximately;
    65% to El Greco.
    25% to Historex Agents.
    10% to retailers who supply items the first two normally don't, such as S'n'M Stuff, Chronos Miniatures, and now Zabavka Workshop.
    None of these people have ever let me down, in fact they've gone out of their way to be helpful....:)....but they can send me a cheque for the free publicity anytime they like....:D
    Anyway, enough from me. Lets chat about Kev's brilliant figure.

  14. samson Well-Known Member

    And by the way the piece looks great

    Thanks for the kind words, guys.

    Yes, Black Heart is like the king of 1:1 busts, and I do think they have the Harryhausen Medusa. They also started doing mini busts a short time ago, tho I forget if they did a small Medusa. I have a few of their others, and they are all very well done.

    This is the only Medusa I can find in their on-line shop.
