By Mark Savage

They’re creepy and they’re kooky… It has been a long time since I was a kid. A loooong time. But I remember the fun that Halloween delivered, especially when The Addams Family came on — one of my favorite TV shows. While every kid can enjoy the free candy and all that goes with trick-ortreating, the chill that creepy Halloween characters put into the season makes it exciting and fun. But humor also plays a big role in making any season, holiday, or event more enjoyable. Voilà, we bring you Spooktacular 2017.

This year we decided to inject some extra fun into our October issue with a Halloween theme. Certainly there’s Frankenstein, but we looked for stories that featured some devilishly named subjects, but hopefully not devilishly difficult builds. To that effect, we present a Demon, a Vampire, and a dark, menacing Black Widow. We may have stretched the spooky theme a bit with an airbrushing column featuring menacing nose art on an M48, plus Crazy King Ludwig’s ornate castle set in the dark forests of Germany — although Karl

Logan built the castle with a touch of romance, instead of mischief, in his heart. Still, I can imagine bats flying around one of the towers and a damp, creepy dungeon beneath. Did I just hear some chains being dragged across the floor? We know our Spooktacular is a bit off the wall. But we hope you enjoy our foray into the frightful and dark world of Halloween, even if only in name for most of our builds. I think you’ll find there are still a lot of good modeling tips in all the stories. Spooktacular 2017 is all in good fun — and isn’t that what modeling is mostly about? So, if you have a favorite spooky build, send pictures of it our way. We’ll open the files slowly!

Seems we hardly ever have more than a handful of kids trick-ortreating these days. So darn it, I must eat most of the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups myself . . . maybe we should buy just one more bag!

Any leftover trick-or-treat candy. But somehow, I always find a bag or two I “missed” when filling the bowl to hand out to the kids.

I never did like caramel apples, so I am glad they went away. I like to sneak Kit Kats whenever my wife is not looking. I also like to answer the door and say, “Who is it?” or “Yes? May I help you?” Answers from the little ones crack me up.

There’s no graceful way to eat one, and you’re liable to loosen a tooth, but a caramel apple is so worth it.

No specific order here, but I like Laffy Taffy, Skittles, Twix, Butterfingers, and Kit Kats, both to eat and to give out.
