Yeah, the prep just seems to go on and on with a figure model eh Chris?!
Your careful work will pay dividends in the end though!

You've got him shaping up very nicely!  :)
Ooooooo!  I think I may buy that kit!

Seams can be infuriating to deal with. Fill, dry, sand, GAH!! Fill, dry, sand #*!*@ (This has been a dramatic reenactment)

That said, great work  ;D

dude, me and figure kits would not get along! I admire your patience!
I would approach this kit thus:
* sand... fill... sand... fill... sand.. fill..sand. fill. sand. fill. sand.fill.sand.fill.SAND.FILL!SAND!FILL!! LANDFILL!! screw it... I'm making an x-wing* lol :P

Hey it's looking really good !!

Even with the annoying cape seam, the assembly looks really clean... should have a great base to do your painting on... Not much more work and that cape seam will disappear :)

Awesome work!

Love this model, I like the super hero kits :-)
I've just started making models after what seems like 400years but its really only 35ish years :-)

Well after a week of rain and wind we finally had a good couple of days for me to reprime the man of steel and get a base coat on him and part of the cape, for most of you saw the cape base coat on Mondays hang out it has bee hit with fine and super fins sanding sticks to get imperfections out of the paint as well as make it look less glossy. today was able to get a base coat on the figure itself but will still have to knock that shine down a little more. so with out futher ado here are the pics and the video will be up on my channel on you tube just look for Christopher Whitford.
