Final Frontier 75 Kirk finished by The Tharps!
« on: December 17, 2017, 09:37:28 PM »

Hey everyone  :D

Took a bunch of pics of my new Don Post Studios 1975 Captain Kirk replica  "Final Frontier" sculpted by Nick Mulpagano & finished by Rob & Cathy Tharp. I am so honored they worked on this mask & made it look & feel just like the original. Congratulations to all the collectors who got in on this special project, Also a big thank you to Nick for doing such an amazing job on the sculpt & making this possible.

take care,

Jimmy

Gawd, Nick did a great job! It's like an enhanced version of DP's Kirk,
with all features more defined. 'Love the finish too although I offer a
styling note regarding the hair in back: I'd prefer it shorter and not
visible below the ears from a front view. 'Can hardly wait to get one
but I must figure a way to display it so the neck doesn't appear quite
so wide. Thanks for all these awesome images, shape1188.

Thank you both for the great comments :)

I used a safety pin for the bck of the neck on a foam head and some slight stuffing. As for the long hair thatís how Rob & Cathy do all of their kirks I believe.
