The Classic – Wolfman
Aurora / Monogram Model Kit
This is the Monogram re-issue of the Classic Aurora Wolfman model-kit which I completed over the summer. I was probably 9 or 10 years old the last time I built this kit. It was originally released in 1962.
There were a lot of seams that needed to be filled and sanded on this piece. Quite a bit of thin plastic remnants around the fingers and toes had to be cut away and scraped off. That’s to be expected as the molds to these old kits begin to wear out through the years and become less perfectly fitted.
I painted a quick background on a piece of cardboard as an afterthought, then liked the way it came out. I built a small rocky base to hold the two silver background trees and the cardboard backdrop behind the kit to add atmosphere to the scene.
