NEW MONSTER MODEL KITS
Today's post is for all of you whose first buzz was from the polystyrene fumes of model airplane glue while assembling the latest Aurora monster model kit.
While not sold in the millions like in the 50s and 60s, the hobby of model-making still has a sizable following and shows no sign of letting up.
Monster figure models have come and gone, but thanks to manufacturers like Polar Lights, Moebius and others, they have enjoyed multiple resurgences over the years.
Among the latest resin kits are scenes from ABBOTT & COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN and plastic kits of a new version of THE CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON and a stunner of Frank Frazetta's Death Dealer.
Two online suppliers of a wide variety of model kits are CULT TV MAN and MONSTERS IN MOTION.
