The classic Universal Monsters strutting their stuff from left to right: The Invisible Man, The Mummy, Bride of Frankenstein, Dracula, Wolf Man, Frankenstein’s Monster, and The Creature from The Black Lagoon.
I wanted them to look all model'y just for the fun of it while still keeping some of their original design. I got inspiration for the mummy from modern Egyptian models, while the creature from the black lagoon turned out very different, but I did my best with some scales tattoos and a raincoat.
I actually made it in color, but I like the silver version better.
On Thanksgiving 1991, Omaima Nelson, a 24-year-old Egyptian model, bludgeoned and stabbed William Nelson, her husband of just two months, to death. After murdering him, she dismembered and skinned his body, castrated him, and then cooked his decapitated head and hands. She confessed to eating his ribs, saying they tasted “so sweet”. She claimed that her husband had sexually abused her and she was convicted of second-degree murder and sentenced to 28 years to life imprisonment.
This thing has been haunting me for the past few weeks I haven’t been able to put my all into anything other than this it’s just been an overwhelming urge to see this model finished this thing has to be an SCP or something BUT HERE IT IS it’s done and I’m hopefully free from the curse I will see this thing in hell.
Simply referred to as the FN49 or sometimes SAFN, this rifle is often viewed as the father of the FN FAL. The most common variant is the Egyptian model chambered in 8mm Mauser. Note the brass butt plate and unit coin. These are desirable features but not all Egyptians have them. In spite the box magazine the FN49 is stripper clip fed. The magazine is only removed for cleaning or replacing parts when needed. (GRH)
