Flash Gordon - Lobsterman

This figure is a re-painted plastic toy miniature from the Disney playset, Pirates of the Caribbean. The 'Lobsterman'. The set contains another three miniatures.

I re-based the figure on a 40mm round base and built up the groundwork in my usual way, before coating the whole miniature (base as well) with PVA glue. Once dry the miniature was undercoated with acrylic black paint before being re-painted, pretty much as the original. Maybe just a little more detail, for example the claw and barnacles.

The miniature stands just over 40mm tall. Quite an unusual addition to my Flash Gordon figure collection. The miniature has nothing to link it to any particular period and could therefore work in a number of settings.
