    Gotcha. Both had a similar style so that is probably why I got them mixed up. I know these gray hairs in my beard didn't have anything to do with it...:D:D:D

    I took the light boxes apart and re painted the frames, polished the acrylic panels and recreated the graphics on the ends...

    I put the backlit boxes up in the windows. I had no idea how crowded looking that wall was until I saw this picture.... Lol

    The light boxes in the window wells bothered me , looked too hillbilly with the cords running across the walls. I built some shelf brackets and put them up like they belong...

    I'm amazed these heads still exist, and really happy to see them in your possession Mark! The show display boxes are really great too, so good this man hung on to those for so long, and you've done a nice job restoring them! Glad to see the 57' is still in your garage, another incredible survivor. Do you have any photos of the Swine Hunt? I never knew that even existed! I hope the gentleman you got this stuff from follows thru on a recreation! I'm still building a lot of this same stuff in model form, for both myself and clients, along with a gaggle of Roth Monsters! I took about an eight year break, did a lot of commissioned work on Sc-Fi stuff, but I'm back where I belong this year and moving forward. Contact me any time, would be good to catch up! E-mail is tim@ratdaddystudios.com Web site is ratdaddystudios.com as well. Lot's to look at there......
