Taking a little hiatus from model building has allowed extra time for painting. Was able to complete this Black Heart Models sculpt of Kahn yesterday. Really great sculpt of the character with a pretty good likeness. It had been a while since I’ve seen the film so watched it again for reference. I thought the biggest challenge was his hair. This was the first time I’ve ever attempted painting gray hair. I started with a mix of beige brown and sky gray for the base. I mixed in neutral gray for the shadows and lightened the mix by adding more sky gray for the highlights, all from Vallejo Model Colors. I think it worked out well. Included are pics of the sculpt with the rest of the collection which is now complete. Also, he’s pictured here facing off against Kirk from the past. They’re all pretty good likenesses. My favorites are Kirk, Spock, and the Gorn.
