For issue #53, it's time to grab your mask and pillowcase and head out into the neighborhood for a beggar’s night excursion that’ll be nothing but modeling tricks and figural treats! That right kids, it’s Halloween time and the AFM house is handing out some of the sweetest resin and plastic candy on the block.
First, Steve Riojas will scare the yell out of you with a porch diorama that’ll feature Kreature Kid’s awesomely cool “Halloween Nightmares” gang.
Next, David Fisher takes an eye of newt and wing of bat to Tweeterheads’ “Home Cookin,” an epic Salem Witch kit that’s certain to put a spell on you.
Mike Reagan will be off masquerading with Dimensional Designs’ “Don Post Mask Ad” kit while Dave Prosser takes a stab at the Polar Lights “Michael Myers” model.
The AFM Artist Profile covers the triple threat talent of Casey Love’s GK, Mask and Film careers, plus what would a Halloween issue be without an article on sculpting pumpkins! Yes trick or treaters, all this sugary goodness plus more models, reviews and stunning photography await readers in the blackened pages of America’s one and only figure kit magazine, Amazing Figure Modeler!
