Darrin Buchholtz’ Dracula Bat

The Dracula Bat is a Horizon kit. I really like the detail of this kit. It was neat to see washes and dry brushing help to bring out so much detail on it. Living in an apartment at the time, I didn’t have an area set up for airbrushing (which would have helped with the brown hair) so everything had to be hand painted. I used the suggestion of putting Plaster of Paris in his lower legs to try to weight him down. The figure seems to be a bit top heavy and prone to tipping. I think in future kits I will try using lead shot to put in the lower limbs secured in place with white glue.
