Mighty Joe Young (1949)

Oct 06, 15 Mighty Joe Young (1949)

Posted by in Harryhausen

Mighty Joe Young was a straightforward build. It is a solid piece of resin so it is quite hefty. No base came with the kit so a wood base was cut with a jigsaw and coated with sculptamold and textured. After drying the surface was painted. Dried plant material was dipped into matte medium, patted dry, and placed next to the dirt...

Posted by in Rare & Unusual

The film, The Thing That Couldn’t Die, is one of my many guilty pleasures. This kit was made by Danny Sirocco at Dimensional Designs. The build up of this kit was straightforward and all of the usual resin problems were fixed prior to painting. It would have been easy to ‘gore up’ the severed neck but I kept it...

Not much to say about this straightforward build other than pointing out the starfish and clam shell. These are actual life forms that are miniature in nature but in scale with this piece.

From the first film done in 1957, The Curse of Frankenstein, one of the key scenes is when Dr. Frankenstein (Peter Cushing) enters his lab and finds to his shock and surprise the monster...

Aug 15, 15 Boris Karloff and Jack Pierce, “The Mummy” (1932)

Posted by in Universal

I love mummy movies and at the top of the heap is the 1932 Universal Studios’ film, The Mummy, starring Boris Karloff. The man behind the scenes, make-up artist, Jack Pierce, is the man responsible for the incredible image of ImHoTep as he first, “went for a little walk” Way back in 1990 I received the kit,...

Posted by in Universal

This beautiful diorama from KitKong’s Model Mansion is an exact reproduction of the finale of the Universal Studios’ 1932 film, The Mummy, starring Boris Karloff, where the character, Ardath Bey, is menacingly walking after infidels and putting the ol’ ancient Egyptian whammy on them with the statue of Isis in the...
