Professional Model Building Services

February 19th, 2006

LOOKING TO HAVE A KIT PAINTED? The following sites are owned by some of my favorite artists and I would recommend any of them for your painting or sculpting requirements. Check out their portfolios and be sure to contact them for more details on their services. Predatorstuff.com does not offer professional model building, painting or sculpting services directly at this time, but you can contact any of these people and should you want to have a kit shipped to them directly when ordering from our shop, simply enter their shipping details in the address fields, and in the shipping instructions box, please put your full name and state that you would like the kit shipped directly to the artist for painting.

 

PAINTING SERVICES

A simple gallery of the amazing and super talented Joe Dunaway, one of the best model builders around and specializes in serious Predator goodness! Want him to build you a kit? His contact email is on the portfolio page.



HBM is the home of the extremely talented and very professional John Allred and his formidable collection of evil beasts! John is an extremely versatile artist who has done just about every kind of kit you can think of and can be booked any time for your own build-up work.



 

This is the portfolio of my good friend and fellow CH member Saul Alvarez, one of the longest standing model builders I know… he’s been doing this for a LONG time and most definitely knows his stuff.  I have a gorgeous TMNT Leo done from him that absolutely rocks and his pricing is VERY reasonable.  His email is saul62@aol.com.



 

Tom is another good friend from the Clubhouse forum who’s definitely seen just about everything in the GK community and is available for comission work on a regular basis.  Tom has put together TONS of kits over the years and his pricing is also excellent, so don’t be shy and drop him an email through his site.



 

In addition to these sites, you can also contact my good friend Joe Evans by clicking HERE. Joe does not have an online portfolio, but he does excellent build-ups of both kits and full size props and costumes and his prices are quite cheap. You can check out some of his work in our gallery HERE, HERE, and HERE. Email him and ask for more kit photos, I know he has a ton he can send you.

 

SCULPTING SERVICES

Need something sculpted by a pro?  The following links are for professional sculptors that may be available to accept new projects, however please note these guys are usually booked pretty far out in advance and the rates do reflect their levels of experience and skills.  These guys are considered among the best sculptors out there, so be ready for long wait times and price tags of several thousand dollars.

 
Howard S Studios
Welcome to the homepage of Howard Senft, one of the most highly acclaimed sculptors in the industry, specializing in full size bust sculptures and statues. Please note that Howard is a very high end sculptor, and while he does do commission work, it is most definitely not cheap.
   


Toilet Face – Gabe Perna

Gabe Perna produces some of the most AMAZING original concept monster kits you’ve ever seen and his work is mind blowing!  From his "Smells like Children" kit to his highly successful Venom sculpt, Gabe can do it all with jaw-dropping results.

   

Erick Sosa Studios

Erick Sosa is a professional sculptor that has done both amazing original kits for the Garage Kit community, as well as works for large replica and statue companies such as Sideshow Collectibles.  He is a very cool guy to work with and easy to deal with and specializes in wax based sculpting in various scales for all kinds of characters.  He also has a blog at toyzkulptor.blogspot.com.
