Bashed this kit a few years ago....using Monarch Models' Gorgo kit and 3 car kits I had kicking around....





Decided it needed its' own Box Art... So I hired a very Talented Artist Doug Pagacz https://www.facebook.com/doug.pgosh
...and he came up with this.... What do you think?


Original Art...

Cheers

Good luck with that! I tried to get Polar Lights to do kits of the Zombie Hit Men and got nowhere. OTOH, Gorgo does have better name recognition... :rolleyes:

Even Got Fritz to create this name plate :


Might have to bash a Base for this guy along the lines of the Artwork

Cheers !

Wow......Gorgo's Gasser looks amazing! The original art and the box art really look like something Aurora forgot to release! The addition of the Forgotten Prisoner is a nice touch. I can hardly wait for what you come up with for the base.


There's one thing I noticed that is unusual. Having been to London, I'm probably one of the few here that knows the Tower of London is actually in the general area where Big Ben is shown in the art. Big Ben is on the other side of the Thames close to where Gorgo's Gasser is actually at. Since the renditions of both the Tower Bridge and Big Ben are so finely detailed, photographs must have been used as a reference. Therefore I'm assuming it was intentional.

Good eye!... and thanks for liking this ! Yes everything was done intentionally as I wanted this box art to go well with Godzillas Go Cart, put side by side it looks like they are charging at each other...


If you look over Gorgos right hand andto the rear...you can see a tribute for my 3 year old Grand Daughter who loves the Nursery Rhyme London Bridges Falling Down.
Also a nod to Monarch models with the Butterfly over the Crown on the wheelie bar....

Goug P'Gosh did all the Magic in this Artwork.
