Frankie Stein Wham Award!
An intresting piece of comic history. Recently sold over at compalcomics.com for £275, with an estimated price of £300 - £350, sadly not quite reaching that.
Here is the auction description:
Lot # 215
Frankie Stein Monster Award by Ken Reid for WHAM! (1960s)
A one-off bust made by Ken Reid for a WHAM! readers competition that apparently did not take place. Entitled 'Frankie's Monster Award' the bust is made from resin and was modelled and painted by Ken with his brother's help. It measures approximately 4 x 4 x 2 ins deep. It is unique
Congratulations to the winner of the auction! If you happen to be reading this could you please contact me as I'd love to see some more photo's of the model!
I recieved an email from Ken Reid's daughter in law Linda, and it turns out Ken didn't actually make it model! It was designed and manufactured by Anthony (his son) and painted by Linda!
