Hey everybody, long time no see! Thought I'd let you know I've got a Harryhausen model kit for sale - it's Tony McVey's amazing take on the Ymir from 20 Million Miles to Earth, which he slightly re-designed to have more dinosaur-ish characteristics:

The pictures are links. It's an unpainted unassembled resin kit produced by Tony's Menagerie Productions. 7 day auction started last night (Saturday the 10th).

Auction ended early - someone snatched it using Buy It Now. Wanted to let you guys know. I have a couple more related kits I'll be eBaying soon and I'll post about those as well. 

Hey Strider, nice to see you drop in!  

Looks like you got a good result on the Ymir.

Hey Nick! Good to hear from you. That wasn't my work, I grabbed some pics off the net - but yeah, it was really well done! I never did assemble or paint most of my model kits. There was a time years ago when I got a whole bunch with the idea of decorating my hobby room, but never built more than a couple. There's something about statues (which is what a finished model kit is) that I don't care for, because they take up so much table or shelf space and can't be put away in a folder or a drawer the way prints or books can. Plus they're fiddly and difficult to dust. 

Ok, that pretty well explains why you are selling it now!  

I don't go in for space-hogging 3d collectibles, don't have enough room for my own sets and puppets that I might actually want to use again, never mind a bunch of garage kits.  And I could never find space to hang all the prints that I like, either, so what I do have are quite a few books on painters, illustrators, and stop motion, all contained on the bookshelf.  And I am now having to cull my books too, mostly chucking the ones I used for reference when I needed to make a particular creature, google images does that these days. 

Well, when I say prints what I really mean are either posters or calendars, which I think of as an inexpensive way to get a bunch of 'prints' at a decent size all collected into a booklet. Guess I started thinking that way in the late 70's when the Frazetta calendars were coming out and I couldn't afford the books. If I'm going to cut them apart to pin some up on a bulletin board or something I'll keep the outer folder intact as a container.
