Bandai King Ghidrah Model Kit

This is my Bandai, King Ghidrah model kit.

Filling the seams was a bit of a problem with this kit, it was difficult to fill and then match the texture. If I had it to build over, I would only fill the seams where the legs attached to the body and leave the others. They weren’t really that bad as the kit fits together nicely. Some of the seams I didn’t touch at all.

I added the collar fur and tail fur which was evident in the early Ghidrah films.

The kit does not come with a base and I wanted to display it with my other giant monsters, so I built a custom base.

I tried to match the base sizes of the other kits and I did it movie poster style, so all the aspects are not really correct scale.

The Alien dude was not proper scale to Ghidrah so I put him in the foreground to simulate perspective.

I painted the base in gray tones so it wouldn’t take away from the bright color of Ghidrah.

I made the title plate from clay, painted it, then printed out titles. I pasted titles on both sides of the plate so I can change the title. One says, Invasion of the Astro-Monster, the other says, Ghidrah, the Three Headed Monster.

Note: As with the kit, I am using the American spelling of Ghidrah. In later films and Japanese versions it is spelled, Ghidorah.
