Recommended Posts

A few companies have been reissuing the old Aurora Monster model kits and in a fit of near terminal nostalgia I have picked up these three, which funnily enough I never actually had as a kid.

Atlantis King Kong,a film best summed up with the immortal review "Big Monkey die, everybody cry"

Atlantis Godzilla

Moebius Dr Jekyll as Mr Hyde

Picked up a few resin replacement parts for Kong and Dr J.

Might need a few fillings in the old gnashers

Couldn't resist having a glow shot of Godzilla.

Work on Kong, the resin replacements take this kit to another level

Added a spare Prehistoric scenes Tree from the Swamp kit I had to the base

A fair bit of filling\retexturing  required on Kong.

Built up a back wall for the Dr J kit,used distressed wrapping paper for the wallpaper as I felt it had a nice Victorian feel to it.

Love these old kits! Never made the king kong or jekyl and hyde, but I built and painted the godzilla many moons ago (pretty sure it was when moebius were were doing them).

That wrapping paper wallpaper looks fantastic on and really fits well!
