Moebius Mummy – 1/6th scale – custom build and paint
Here I’ve taken the Moebius Mummy and made some major modifications to have it emulate the cover art of Monsters of the Movies Magazine, issue #6, 1975.
It is 1/6th scale and stands about 13 inches tall.
I was never impressed with the older mummy movies. I thought they were slow and boring. The mummy seemed too slow to really stir up fear and the films dragged on worse than the mummy’s left leg. It wasn’t until I had seen the cover of this Monsters of the Movies issue that I gained interest in mummy movies. My favorite is the Hammer films adaptation, but I eventually developed an appreciation to some of the older films too. Of course the newer films are action movies, not horror movies, and I think they’re entertaining enough, but not my favorite pics for Mummy flicks.
here’s a side by side comparison, standard kit build and my modified kit
Repositioned mummy’s arm and sculpted new legs.
Broken Sarcophagus and loose pieces flying outward
Added steps to base, repositioned Sarcophagus cover
Added torch light mounted to wall, skulls and rats (from Aurora Customizing kit #2)
Spider webs/cob webs
Mummy nameplate holder
I’ve been working on this kit for a few months. I’m glad I finally finished it and it came out the way I had envisioned it.
