George Reeves as Superman
|I will be honest with
you. This was one of those projects that I never thought would get
done. I guess you never know what you can do until you do it.
The base for this figure was a Playmates Captain Kirk figure.
The major job on this custom was to resculpt William Shatner into George Reeves. For this I used both plumber's putty and white putty for the additive portions of the sculpting. My trusty Dremel took care of the subtractive parts of the job.
The wrinkles in the clothing were trimmed and sculpted down. I used plumber's putty to create the boot tops
The cape came from an animated Superman figure.
The S-shield was painted by hand.
The figure was then primed, painted, and sealed.
Adam West as Batman, Yvonne Craig as Batgirl, and Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman are next on my list.
