Vision Models "Commandant Lee"
This “Commandant Lee” by John Wright and “Vision Models”, is my all-time most sentimental rendering and will forever remain within my gallery. Sounds pretty serious huh… Well, it is, not just because it was a great kit, but because it was the very first kit I ever put my hands on. Yep, this is it, the “Grandma” of my rendering collection. Done several years ago, this was my first step in the “Garage Kit” door. As this was my first rendering, I knew nothing. With that in mind, this piece was completely airbrushed with a “Master G26” airbrush, a few bottles of “Hobby Lobby” acrylic paints and a paint brush. Lacking knowledge, proper tools, proper paints or proper direction, this rendering is evidence that “anything truly is possible”. The only other one I had ever seen was of course rendered in black, so having to be a little different, I tried to go with the red leather look instead. The kit was awesome, fit great, easy to work, just three or four pieces – a great introduction into figure modeling. Needless to say, with the end results shown, I was hooked! Thanks go out to John at Vision for sucking another one (Me) into the “Garage Kit Abyss”! I didn’t do a real good job in regards to the resemblance of Pam, but hey, hot is hot! The details were there in the cast, just didn’t quite make it onto the brush! The kit was in quarter scale and I believe, still available today through “Vision Models”.
