My finished PROTEUS
Movies...TV...cartoons.....My display idea has em all covered. These shots are of my completed PROTEUS resin kit I got from Drew @ Crows Nest Models. After basically 45 years of waiting for this model (saw FV at the drive in in '66) Drew has helped make my yearning a reality!!
With my PROTEUS is my other fave model the SPINDRIFT from LOTG. Also inside is the plastic kit of the Mach 5 from Speed Racer. (Where the hell was this model when I was 7 years old and had a hot love affair with the M5 ??!!??) You'll also notice A "mini me" PROTEUS on my homemade 'miniaturizer' pad. That is a tiny pewter nugget of a model I got off Ebay last year. I painted it up myself.
I built up the "landing gear" legs for the PROTEUS myself. I realize its not quite true to the film version since the "landing gear" are NOT deployed in the miniturizer scene.....but I figured 'what the hell', artistic liberty! They came out damn good, anyway...IMHO. hopefully the photos I took load up allright.....
Thanks again Drew!!! It may have been pricey, but it was worth it! Why the heck didnt you create this beauty years ago, dammit!!?
Lemme know what ya guys think.....
