Though not as enduring as The Human Torch, Namor or Captain America, the Angel nonetheless enjoyed a run of over 100 stories. By Golden Age standards, that was a very respectable run. The character was resurrected in the Silver Age as one of the Uncanny X-Men. According to Wikipedia:

.
"A costumed detective with no superpowers, the Angel was among the few such heroes to wear no mask, and in his Golden Age appearances made no effort to conceal his identity as independently wealthy Thomas Halloway, a former surgeon. He later acquired the "mystic cape of Mercury", which allowed him to fly, but he used this ability only occasionally, as on his campaign against the foreign spy Cat's Paw. "

Captain America #2 /Mar. 1941
Cover Art by Jack Kirby

"The Angel was already active by the time of the first Human Torch and Sub-Mariner adventures, and active as far back as 1936. He fought alongside Namor against World War II "Nazombies", and was later ... a member of both the All-Winners Squad and the V-Battalion during the war."

The model I've designed is patterned directly from the cover above featuring one of the Angel's early appearances. However, I have also included optional costume parts that appeared in later issues. I haven't had a chance to build this one yet - so it's still a beta. Please let me know if you encounter any glitches.

Happy Modeling!!
The Professor.

p.s. If you do build it, please send pics here :)
