Default Necron 99 Assasin from Wizards...

I'm working on two of these super rare resin kits of the animated movie character "Necron 99" assasin from the mid-70's animated film "Wizards". A strange film, but not for it's time. Pretty cool animation, and you can view it on youtube if you don't remember it! I sculptged one of these beasts in ceramic clay and fired it in my senior year of high school. My first wife killed it somewhere in the mid 80's....I wish I still had it, even a decent photo of it!

One of these is for high school chum and professional model builder Simon Merc's of "The Kit Factory". (www.thekitfactory.com)
The other was payment from him to me for the build, as he gave them to me! Worked out good for us both! Looking forward to getting after them with the airbrush!

These are preliminary fit shots. Since this, I have spent 3 hrs. cleaning one of them up and adding all of the bit pieces to it. Resin kits are great, but lot's of tiny mold lines and bits of junk to remove. This is a really nicely done garage kit, and I want them to look great, so the extra effort in cleanup is worth it!

Hi,
I built this kit years ago. I did some modifications that made it look better to me. These images might help give you some ideas...
Great kit...great movie.....

I have always wanted that kit, it's from Raven if I remember right. At the time money was tight so I had to choose between Peace or Taarna and I choose Taarna. Both are great sculpts.

The laser disk copy of the movie has a great pic. (Yes I said laser disk)

I now I am a little later here, but I hope you took lots of pics

Wow! I didn't know what this was until I read the thread. I was -1 when Wizards was released. I checked Youtube like you mentioned Tim Nolan and I have to say I really dig the style of the cartoon. So trippy and the art during the prologue was insane!

I dig the model. I have a similar work mat so I can see the model is huge! I would totally buy this kit! Awesome stuff!

Oh and your work is crazy cool, TZY!!!

Joe

If you dont have any luck there I have Raven Hoods e-mail address. He was the original sculptor and I think he still sells them.

Tony,
Sweet! I think I'll try my luck bidding on it. But yeah, in case I can't win it, I would totally appreciate you contacting him.
