But do you speak Hovitos?
I have one of the black resin model from years back and love it! It sits on my desk and I see it every day.
Interesting article here
I've read most of that from different sources, but it was interesting and helpful to see it all summarized this way.
Which bird did you use to make yours?
The Milan bird based on the Christies auction photos and still frames from the movie.
Fascinating stuff (a Fedora Lounge thread is mentioned!). My take is that there were multiple plaster props used in the film, and Milan's claim that his 47-lb lead version was the only one used is preposterous.
The total count from all my reading is that there were 3-5 plaster casts used in the film and 1 18lb metal bird (not lead) that was used when Gutman scratched the enamel off. This is also consistent with my experience working props in the film industry.
The 47lb lead birds were created long after the movie from the original mold and given as gifts by the studio head.
Lastly, as an artist, it is clear to me that the original falcon sculpture was made by someone who knew what they were doing. We now know the name of the artist who was commissioned to make it. In contrast, the Risen bird from the 75 film is a hack job done by an amateur who was patching up a bad cast. No self respecting artist would ever render feathers that way.
What finish most closely match’s the original?
Black is the screen accurate appearance.
Fascinating story, this Maltese Falcon business. Reminds me of Marlon Brando's jacket in The Wild One and James Dean's Jacket in Rebel Without A Cause.
I need one, to go with my Hirschfeld.
What would be the turn around time for a Satin Black Solid Resin (5lbs) version?
I usually average a week or less. Just let me know when you need it by and I'll make sure it gets there on time.
Just delivered a custom job. Hot forged bronze falcon with secret compartment.
Nice, can you pm me a price quote for the same
Got my order in for one just like this; looking forward to having it
You are going to absolutely love it, the custom ordered one pictured here is actually mine (received it about a week ago).
I just got an update from the foundry and solid bronze falcons are now available. Cost $1450. Won't know the weight until one is cast.
And yes, I'm rather peeved about this because he's been telling me for months that it couldn't be done.
