Godzilla – Aurora / Polar Lights Model Kit
With Cult of Personality Replacement Head
This is my Godzilla model-kit which I completed in June, 2013.
I painted it the standard Godzilla-gray (2 shades of gray, off white and black). I built a base and background for the kit display. I used the Cult of Personality conversion/custom head, which I further customized by leaving out the train car (it would be in the mouth) and doing a little sculpting around the mouth to even out the face.
I picked out photos from the internet for the background. I liked this skyline, because of its open spaces and contrast. I later discovered it is Chicago. So… Big-G invades Chicago!
lol, thanks! It might seem weird, at my age, doing model kits, but it relaxes me and gives me a sense of accomplishment 🙂

Cool vid and great post! I used to have this!
Dude, this ROCKS! And it’s not weird to do model kits at any age (I guess doing them under age 5 would be weird, but you get the idea). It’s GROOVY! You should see the Ed “Big Daddy” Roth “Weird-Ohs” my husband does. Maybe I’ll take them up as a hobby. Anyway, you did an amazing job. Also, thanks for following Horror Boom, it means a lot to me.
Thanks, glad you liked it 🙂 Its fun and nostalgic. Had these models when I was a kid. I just purchased a Rodan kit from eBay 🙂
