Mar 29, 17 Hellspite from The Scarecrow of Romney Marsh (1964)

Posted by in Rare & Unusual

Anyone with the name of “Hellspite” just gets your attention. This character is one of the triumvirate from “The Scarecrow of Romney Marsh”, the Disney film. The other two characters are the Scarecrow and Curlew. Nothing special about this build-up which was straightforward. The mask the character wore had...

Posted by in Rare & Unusual

During the first season of the original Star Trek series the sixth episode was titled, “Arena”, in which Captain Kirk was placed in a duel-to-the-death combat with a Gorn, a lizard like creature. Through intelligence, wit, and some luck Kirk was able to best the Gorn but, in the end, was unable to kill his...

Posted by in Universal

The key moment in the Universal Frankenstein franchise is when poor Fritz unknowingly dropped the normal brain and instead took the abnormal brain (“Abbie Normal” sez Eye-Gore in “Young Frankenstein”) which was used for the monster. This diorama from the amazing folks at Resin Crypt effectively captures this...

Mar 29, 17 Escape From The Planet of The Apes (1971)

Posted by in Science Fiction

The opening sequence to Escape from the Planet of the Apes was quite a surprise the first time I saw this at the theater. This diorama effectively captures this moment in the film when the three ‘ape-o-nauts’ arrived on the sandy beach. The overall paint scheme was straight forward. Since the ape-o-nauts were on a beach...

Posted by in Universal

The Bride & Groom is from the kind folks at KitKong Model Mansion. The Groom wants the affections of his Bride and she recoils in fear at the thought. Since the Bride was made she was not exposed to sunlight so she has a light skin tone. For the monster, his undercoat is flesh with the Frankenflesh color layered over leaving...

Posted by in Modern Classics

One of the more interesting werewolf films is the Howling. Especially the human to werewolf transformations that were done all on-camera. Impressive. And we finally have a version of the main werewolf. Though the paint scheme and assembly were straightforward the figure is very top heavy since it is solid resin. Extra brass rod...

Posted by in Hammer

For the most part Peter Cushing is poorly represented in the model industry primarily because he did not play any real monsters but, rather, played those who made the monsters. This is why it is enjoyable to add a model of Cushing to the collection. So, where did that skull come...

Oct 19, 16 Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man (1943)

Posted by in Universal

The ice cave set in the Universal Studios’ film, Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man, does work in the film. The chipping away of the ice is still fun to watch. For this film most remember the smack-down fight at the end of the movie (or maybe the “wine song”) and not this remarkable ice cave sequence. As a lover of...
