Here we have one of the best Bela Lugosi Dracula kits ever ! produced. This kit was sculpted by Hama of the Billiken company of japan.This kit made of vinyl was done way back in the late 1980's .if you are lucky to own one of these well done ! if not it might cost you your first born child to own one ! only kidding ! But expect to pay £250.00+/ $400 + for a mint boxed one .

This is the Aurora Hunchback of Notre Dame ,with up graded parts.The parts are posthumorous Antony Quinn head ,and Hunch&judy's box art relief back drop. both are nicely cast in resin ,and i think gives that some thing special to the look of the kit.Model was painted in Acrylic's and detailed with oil paints.

Here is a great little model,It is of the She creature from the 1950's movie.This a little bit of a cheat for me,as this is a pre-painted kit with a great display base.It was produced by X-plus AMC monster film series,The others produced were the War of the colossal beast,and the mutant from The day the world ended movies.They are about 1/8 scale and would fit in a Aurora monster collection very nicely.
I did do a little work on the figure by dry brushing a lighter yellow green on the body and picking out the detail on the mouth and tusks and horns. A great item if you can find one ! recommended.

This the resin kit of John Hurt portrayal of Joseph Merrick the Elephant man,as seen in the David Lynch film.This film was based on a true story of deformed English man from Victorian England.The kit was sculpted by Clare Pearson and the name plate was produced by Friz of the Headless herseman company.This kit captures the mood of the piece as the elephant man is unmasked.
