Dr Who & Martha Jones - Airfix


My pal Keir asked me to have a go and paint up these two massive Dr Who figures, his good lady wife glued the figures together, then I put them in my locker at work and completely forgot all about them. Move forward in time far longer than I care to admit, when 
Keir piped up " Are you gonna paint my Dr Who figures" 
"Eh? What Dr Who fig.....oh shit yeh??

So here they are, they're 1/12 monsters from Airfix, they do come with the Tardis as well, but Keir must still have that. I'm quite pleased with how Mr Tennant came out, but Martha needs a little more work, the skins a little too dark and them bloody eyes nearly killed me!!!
But Keir seemed very happy with them









PS

Salute tomorrow!!!! yeeehaaaawww!!
On nights at the moment, will be home at 6 in the morning and up again at 8
just to go to the show!!
Must be mad!!

  6. These are great, Ray. Every now and then it's fun to step away from the historicals and do some thing like this.

  9. Great work so far Ray. I think you're right about Martha's lips - too big, and too bright as well. I'd go with more of a burgundy colour.

  25. Really nice work. Do you find it takes a different technique to work on a figure so much larger than your usual? I've never worked on anything so large, so I was just curious.

    Have fun at Salute!

    1. These are the largest models I've ever painted and I wasn't really sure how to tackle them, I tried layers of very watered down paint on the jeans, I don't usually do that, but I think it worked quite well.

  26. they do look massive! The fans will love them!

  27. Great work, Ray. I think these giant figures must be very difficult to paint.
    Very nice.
