Gorgo Model Kit – Built and painted

Here’s my Gorgo Model Kit.

Gorgo was a 1961 film, directed by Eugene Lourie, about a prehistoric beast that terrorizes London. It used ‘suitmation’ for effects, like the original Godzilla.

This Gorgo Model Kit is brand new from Monarch Models. It is the same size and scale as the original Aurora monster kits, Godzilla and King Kong.

As soon as I got it, I built it. I mean the day it came in the mail, I started to glue.

I sanded and puttied all the seams. I gave some extra attention to the joint at the neck and body. Otherwise everything fit together nice and snug, better than many kits on the market.

Gorgo in the film is a very dark creature and I painted my kit dark green to reflect the film. It had red eyes.

I did all my highlights in orange also to reflect the film.

I love the destroyed buildings and ruble around the base.
