Re: Model Kit Help Needed

Yep, a light gray usually does the trick for me. It helps the paint stick better to the plastic and if you're using Squadron putty to even out seams between the pieces, it will even out the difference in color between the green putty and the original color of the plastic so you won't see those seams...

Re: Model Kit Help Needed

Jim, you might also want to wash the pieces in a gentle soapy wash to eliminate any mold release that might still be on the plastic pieces. Your paint will go on in a smoother coat. Also, I prefer acrylic paint as you can thin it with water to make it easier to brush onto the model. Take a quick loo...

Re: Need help: Archer's Curved Arrow prop question

I'll hazard a guess...The front of the shaft is flexible, you can see a break-line on the shaft in the picture. If they could run a very thin line from the tip of the arrow's shaft (where the arrowhead is placed) to the lever and if the lever was pulled back, it would pull on the line and bend the f...

Re: Batman Week on my blog.

Yep, the 1943 prototype's first show was to be called, "The Case of the Drowning Seal". If you have access to the Amazing World of DC Comics (Jan 1975) Batman issue, there's an article about this first attempt to bring Batman and Robin to the airwaves. It involves Nazis and the Flying Gray...

Re: Batman Week on my blog.

Great collection, Andy! I'm especially intrigued by your side link to old time radio shows, so I'm assuming you're a fan. Old radio shows are great to listen to. With that in mind, if you could have crafted a full-blown old time Batman radio show, what would it look (sound) like? Detective show? Adv...

Happy Burt-day!

76 years ago, Burt Gervis came into this world and would find himself cast as that young daredevil known as Robin, the Boy Wonder. Thanks to Mr. Ward for all of the great memories and best wishes to him on his special day!

Re: Suggestions for best Batman and Robin costumes...

The boots from China took about 3-4 weeks to get to me. They're a little tall compared to the screen version. Sorry they were too tall. Did you provide the correct measurements and they messed up? No, the only size you could pick was the actual foot size not the height. From the picture on eBay, it...

Re: ATTENTION ANDY FISH

Andy, inspired work as always...visually, how would Raymond Massey work as the Joker? I think that his leering grin from such roles as he played in "The Scarlet Pimpernel" and "Arsenic and Old Lace" would translate well to the Joker's trademark rictus.

I thought Two-Face looked more like Robert Wagner...by the way Jimmy, always great to hear an old term like, "Jake" getting some modern usage.
