    Hey, I read that some of you would like to make a custom base. This is my one, which maybe will help you to get an idea...

    Fantastic base. Adds so much more to the piece. Love the wood flooring. Plus I would like to get him on the same plain as the rest of the CMS. He just seems out of proportion when displayed next to the others without the base.

    Thanks for your nice comments. :)
    Yes, the hight is the same as Bruce Lees / Aragorns base. It's a massive wooden base and pickled dark beech.

    Nice photos but you just gotta lose that cigar Zhong. The Don never once smoked throughout the entire film... his fingers are in that position as they are in the movie poster where he's whispering to Robert Duvall.
    In my view it spoils the pose CM went for. It's like putting an ice cream cornet in the Alien's hand, wrapping tinsel around Jack Sparrow's neck, or adding a skipping rope for Supes.

    Each to his own Zhong.
    I'm draping tinsel around Sparrow as I type.

    I think the godfather is the rarest of the CM volumes....Omer has got the lastest number known...
    I was afraid when i saw some pics on internet but when you know the quality of a CM, you cant be disapointed
    in person its a whole difference
    Maybe i would like him stand up next to his chair and with a base...will match better to other CM
    The chair itself is a work of art, very heavy very well sculpt and paint, i love it
    Hope my pics will convince those who still hesitate

    Ok Phil
    Sir yes sir :)
    The cigar gives him a different expression IMO...
    Its like Sparrow with the custom hat i made for him
    With or without his hat, he looks different...

    Hey Raf, the forum downtime erased your support for the cigar! But don't worry - your secret's safe with me. :canting:
