Default Built-Up Perez-Style Wonderman Kit

I was lucky enough to get my hands on a Perez-style Wonderman kit. This is the infamous costume that lasted only a few issues before it got trashed by Count Nefaria in Avengers #166



Not a very popular look, but was always one of my favorites. I think because the Avengers 164-166 was one of my favorite Avengers storylines. Anyway, here are some pics of the kit in progress and completed.

Wow! That's the first time I've ever seen that sculpt! He turned out great. Those are the kinds of pieces that really set a collection apart IMO. Grats!

Wow, that's a super clean kit.
Did you have to do any trimming or sanding prep at all or did you just wash off the mold release and start painting?
Wish there were more resin kits that came so clean right out of the box. I'm used to spending way too much time trimming and sanding before it even sees the first coat of paint.

This was one of the cleanest kits I'ver ever had. Virtually no trimming. I did some minor trimming on the belt jets to get them to fit in tight. Other than that, it was clean, prime and paint.

Hi Guys,

I have been away from model making for a few years, decided to get back in to it. So, after lurking for a while, I registered today. I had been searching for that Wonderman model a few years back, but now that I have some time to devote to the "hobby", I am trying to hunt it down again. That costume was also always my favorite, next to the original. Hated the safari look, but that's just me.

If anyone can provide a link to find that kit, I would be grateful, and if I am overstepping boundaries with my first post, I apologize. Thanks!

I think that Smashdaddy might have one for sale. A few months ago when I was looking for a Wonder Man bust (which I got the green costume from him) he said he had one. Not being that talented I declined the kit but purchased the bust. I would PM him on here.


Hoping for a Phase 6 with FS Statues of the following

Nighthawk
Mockingbird
Moondragon
Mantis
The Red Guardian (The Defenders member-this one is a longshot)
and a REALLY GOOD Phoenix Museum Pose statue

Welcome jerryss!

Somehow in all these years I missed this thread. The kit looks fantastic and SW you did a fantastic job. I think this is my favorite of his costumes.
