WIP: King Kong statue.

Very happy that i got the chance to work on a awesome sculpture, sculpted by Joe Bailey.


The limbs of the king kong are separated during molding, have to glue the limbs with epoxy glue for extra strong bonds.kkwip00 225x300 The gaps between the limbs and body are very obvious even some area lost the details of the fur, have to resculpt it with bondite epoxy putty.


Bondite is a local brand of hardware putty, but it can be use for scale modelling and sculpting work. I worked on the putty with my Deathscythe Inferno as well.


Here i repair the fur on the butt.kkwip01 225x300 Fill up the gaps between limbs and restore some fur texture.kkwip02 300x225 Here’s how i work on the putty, with the aid of sculpting tools.kkwip03 300x225 Here is photo before the painting.kkwip04 225x300 The figure is hand painted with vallejo acrylics, nice paint for figures and miniatures.

King Kong 2005 Statue

King kong 2005 rendition sculpture.


Huge statue, height more than 30cm, and weight about 5-6 kg. Very great sculpt, but with some molding problem.


Used a whole pack of bondite epoxy putty just to sculpt back the fur and filling the gaps between limbs.


Different painting method to get the shading, skin texture, blood and scars. Ann Darrow (the blonde girl) is fully hand painted with acrylics paint, minor shading and layering.

C2AGE, the abbreviation of Cosplay, Comics, Anime and Games Exhibition. RAVE  (Radicalizing Anime Via Entertainment.) was the theme for 2014 event, it’s organized by HELP University at metro mall pudu branch.


I was invited to the event for the first time, bringing in the gunpla builder community (Pla-zone and SFTPMS) to spice up the exhibition, as i know i don’t have enough works to display such big area, got 6 banquet table for my booth.


special project 300x225


SFTPMS (Selangor and Federal Territory Platic Modelling Society), join this community for about 6 years i think, it’s one of the community that i learn my fundamental knowledge and skills, the member are more diverse scale modeler, consist of sci-fi, gunpla, tank, airplane, ship etc. Their objective is to promote scale model hobby, and there will more join-venture project in future. Here’s some info of the society, http://malaysiascalemodelling.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=2&Itemid=40 , forums http://z12.invisionfree.com/ScaleModelsMalaysia/index.php?act=idx


Pla-zone, established around 2011/2012, promote not only gunpla, but other scale model as well. Most of the members are active in gunpla event in Malaysia.  Here is the forums, http://pla-zone.com/
