For the 2012 Mocathalon category number 26. MOCing the 80ís
Ah the 1980ís, the good old days, Dennis Priceís favorite decade! Build us a MOC that shows something iconic from the 801ís. It can be a famous movie such as Breakfast Club or Terminator, a popular TV show such as Magnum PI, Simon and Simon, or Dallas; or famous music, Depeche Mode, The Cure, Motley Crue, Duran Duran. Anything you want, just make it 80ís!
I built a homage to the 1985 movie,Ladyhawke. Ladyhawke is about an escaped thief who meets two lovers, a knight and a lady. The two are cursed by an evil bishop. By day she is a hawk and by night he is a wolf.
Philipe Gastone, the Mouse.
I don't know if this movie is iconic to the 80's but I saw it on the shelf and got a great idea for a hawk head. Making the face was a challenge. I learned that if you you are going to try building a large face for the first time, don't start with a beautiful woman.
P.S. The sticker on the case doesn't actually say my name. I just edited it in.
Definitely not what would have come to my mind first when thinking of the 80s, but a great movie. The build is quite nice. I was a little thrown off by the hawk's head since the movie art has the whole bird, but I figured it out.
