Ultimate Reeve Superman 1:1 Progress…

More progress images of my full size Superman display from the Super-Talented John May. This dry-fitting of the head to the body is vital to establish correct proportions in the overall figure to correctly capture Reeve’s unique physique. The six/six mannequin was a true find as its muscular without being bulky and with its long legs and relaxed pose ideally convey the physicality of Reeve’s incarnation. Once the head is complete, brackets will be used to fix the head to the shoulders before filling & sanding can take place. Though the body is the closest match commercially, more modifications will be needed to bulk out the thin legs and to shorten the torso to meet the maximum height requirement of 6’5″….More to come…!
