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:
Here's hoping :smile2:


Even Got Fritz to create this name plate :


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

Cheers !

Had this Mini Forgotten Prisoner groupie, Cheering for Gorgo at the Monster Race Rally,

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.

I kinda hate to bring this up, but as a writer with OCD I can't help it. The placement of the apostrophe indicates plural possessive, meaning the Gasser belongs to more than one Gorgo. "Gorgo's Gasser" would be the singular.

Awesome artwork and setup. And again, I apologize; my grandmother was an English teacher, so I didn't have a chance.
In Canada we were taught that placing the apostrophe between Gorgo and the S means 'is' as in Gorgo is in first place and that S- apostrophe was possessive as in the Gasser belongs to Gorgo...
.... but aside from that...Thanks for the compliment on what has been a real labor of love :thumbsup:

Just picked up these 4 resin kits to complete my Monster Rod kits,
They go great with the Gorgos' Gasser and the rest of the Aurora Monster Rod series....
