The apple didn't fall far from the tree.

My daughter came to visit during the Christmas break. She has little time/room to model in the dorm so she asked to build this ugly mojo. It's a Moebius creature kit that I have inherited until I can ship it back to her.

She chose to hand paint it all with MM enamels.

Thanks guys!

Derrick she used Tamiya clear paints. The eyes are just hollow domes with the pebble finish molded inside. I let her rock and roll and that's what she came up with.

Danno she's a nursing student so Goodness knows what she's learning! I do know she scored all A's the first semester. Babygirl's been building since she was seven.

How does it compare in size to a Testors spray can?

Chuck I'll post a pic tomorrow, but a hobby rattle can will fit inside the pincers. The top of the can lid is about equal to the top of the eyes.

It's a good size beastie!

Awwww, the standard by which all things are measured by. :lol:

She did a fantastic job, i'm impressed and you seem very proud of her (not just cause she builds with plastic)

I'd have a hard time letting her take it home.. :)

That's fascinating. Much bigger than I thought. Hard to believe it's that big and brush painted. I love the technique under the abdomen. Lots of artistic expression.

How tall is it completely? You'd think it'd be hard ta find a box big enough to ship it in! Looks great though! Missy's talents are VERY good!!!
