Hemble's Custom Indy Stuff 01/07/09

Hi All

I figured instead of adding a different post everytime I have something to show I figured that I would keep them in one area, Mods if this not ok please delete.

inky_skin put me onto this section I did'nt even realize it was here thanks mate ,Most of you might have seen my work already and for those that haven't please enjoy.

I'll post a few items each day so not to flood the post, I'll post my older works first to my latest stuff so enjoy and any questions I'll be more then happy to answer them.

Stunning work. Your ability to make cheap, mass-produced plastic toys look like delicately hand-crafted works of art is amazing. My fedora is definitely off to you. Can't wait to see more!

As always your work amazes me! A few of these I've never seen before, and I'm especially impressed with Fleeing the Coronado, LC Indy on horseback, and the cargo truck.

Can't wait to see what you work on next man!

Would have done so myself but I thought you knew. Kudos to inky!



I recognize the gas mask "satchel" from an old Military Miniatures kit by Tamiya. It's either a German or Japanese bag. Can't remember which.

Anyway, yeah...Like others (including myself) have mentioned before, your work is stupendous and downright ASTOUNDING! Have you ever had an exhibit? You are a pro and the "I Hate Snakes" display (with miniature gear on hooks) is a piece of art. Looking forward to seeing Jock's workshop added to your gallery, Hemble. That's one of your best...so far! Some new favourites:

Map Room Descent. The cut-away, the decaying wall w/hierogylphs, the wooden barrier, the entrance detail, etc.

Professor Jones & His Class Room! WOW! Not just for the various artifacts but for the blackboard!

The Map Room and, of course, Young Indy. Nice weathering all around.

P.S. Just saw Indy punching the S.S. guy. Great job on the helmet!

Mate thanks so much for the kind words I really do appreciate them, as for the Jock dio that was done by another great Indy customizer named mfisher over on the sideshow freakshow forums.

The bag is from a Tamiya WW2 German figure great eye for detail mate and no exhibit showing the dios/figures but I would like to get one done.

Hemble,

I'm curious, how many Indy figures do you have? Also, roughly how much does one of your customs run in the way of materials?



Nazis, I Hate These Guys is awesome!!

Appreciate the feedback buddy thank you.

I have at the moment 6 x 1/6 indy's in my private collection sold 12 x indy's to people either as commissions or for sale items.

As for how much that will always depend on the size of the dio's or figure for example a indy figure repainted and weathered you are looking at roughly $250au and a dio the size of the rope bridge dio you are looking at $400au.

the materials can range from $20au - $60au then you have the hours that goes into aing and painting the items.

Hi All

I was watching the making of Indiana Jones the other day and when I say the ghost from the ark I decided to give it a go. I had a lot of fun making this figure and also is a great addition to my growing personal collection.

RECIPE

1: Ghost - the ghost was made from the top half of a cheap glow in the dark skeleton I got of ebay. Modelers putty was used to make the rotten flesh on the hands and face, the eyes are small balls. once the putty dried I painted the flesh with varies flesh, browns and tan colours to get the desired affect,

Putty was used at the back of the ghost for balance and then tissue paper was used as the cloth and thin wire was attached to the skeletons frame so the tissue could be attached and look like it's flowing. The tissue was given a coat of diluted wood glue to make it firm.

2: Base - The base is from a two dollar shop and and the rod is plasti rod with a wooden food sewer inserted thru the middle to give it support, the poster I got of the net and just down sized it.

The Inspiration

Ron, as I said in the Art forum all of these are amazing works of art. These things belong in a museum! I lve the early work, many of those I had not seen before. What were you working with back then? All the 12" ones are my favorite. They are mind boggling good, so life like. The new Ark Ghost is also a beautiful. Great execution and I love the small movie poster on the base of these. Keep them coming, I can't wait to see more. Thanks for sharing...

Now I would love to see you around this forum more often. Please take a look at my thread and offer any tips or suggestions as I am always eager to learn techniques to improve my work.
