Resin Figure Models of Classic Mythology

 

While resin figures are nothing new, the material and technology has come a long way over the last couple of decades. In the 1990s when resin figures really took off, the market was quite heavy with figure kits. Companies like Aurora, who did a lot of figures in plastic, was gone. There was a big hole to fill for model builders who wanted to build and paint larger figure models.

Back then, magazines like Kit Builder and Amazing Figure Model had filled a niche market, and were eager to share the possibilities with figure models. While some plastic models have been reissued, and even some new ones came to the hobby shelves, the resin market is still quite large and full of fans. The figures are made in low quantities, low production runs, and you won't find them in hobby stores. Most of them have to be ordered online.

Some kits from the 1990s can bring big dollars because they are so rare. Most kits tend to lean towards Pinups, Horror, and Science Fiction themed subjects. Military figures still make up a larger portion too. But the kits can still be hard to come across. It takes a special kind of modeler who can assemble a vinyl or resin figure model, and then has the talent to paint the model to make it life like. I envy those builders. I wish I had that kind of talent.

With modern resins, you get a very smooth surface and much better castings than ever before. Some new ones are classic "statues", which are molded in white. They are usually classic figures, such as from Roman Mythology. The typical gods, of Mars, Athena, Hercules, Zeus. You get the idea. Some reflect statues and artork, such as retro or art-deco styles. Some are fantasy figures, from women to goblins and elves. It's a wide open market.

Here are just a few of these great resin figures that can be painted:
