In an effort to collect Medusa kits whenever possible, I came across this kit at a not so recent JerseyFest (or was it the old Resintopia?). The kit came fro the Morland Studios. The kit comes in 6 parts plus a 60mm round base and the figure is scaled to 32mm.

Following the card, I tried to copy the image. The small size of kit was a real trial to my limited abilities.
Image

The sculpted base comes in 2 parts, and they are made to attach together, but sitting on the round base, there was extra room. I decided to fill the black base. In the pic you can see gray Aves to fill the base splitting the difference between rocks and sea. I also used V's Plastic putty to fill the seam between the monster/sea and the rocks.

I made the tip of the snout of the monster shades of gray as if it was turning to rock, again a la the Clash of the Titans remake. Don't know how well that comes across being so little of the monster is seen.
Image

From there, I concentrated on the TINY details for the figure.
Image

There was no decal for the shield, so I tried my best, thinking of the Clash of the Titans remake, and painted on a scorpion. Finally adding some gloss to the scene, and gluing Perseus in place, I was finished. Thanks for looking.

Wow!
Way too small for me.

But you did a great job on it.
And I think it tells the story quite nicely.
