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.
