Thanks, John! Sincerely. I enjoyed painting the figure very much. I’d be tempted to add that the whole point of building this kit was to paint the figure but I enjoyed painting Kong too. Her arms were molded separately so I added brass pins for strength. Since I’ll be shipping the kit I have really built this one with sturdiness in mind. She’s still not glued into his fist yet. I’m debating how to do that. I’ll probably add a blob of Milliput in the center. She’s split in two pieces.

Just beautiful. That’s all I can say.
To make each build less crappy than the last one. Or, put another way, "Better than the last one, not as good as the next one!"..

That came out beautifully brother. The kit piece was a bit underwhelming so good choice on that score.

Well done!
Now that we know that.... What have we learned?...
