I love the notation on the fay Wray model - "Fay had average-sized breasts, please don't overdo." :)

strangly enough, overdoing them is easy to do, even when you dont mean to. sculptors like form, thats all. (i got a similar notation from disney on my nightmare before christmas sally sculpt. "too busty: reduce", and i thought i had been very subtle with her!)

Awesome article.

I think that the stuff in that article should for a "To Do" list for those two new start-up styrene kit companies we have been hearing about here recently.

Nice job on the article AT! There is alot of stuff that dreams are made of in there...and yes, I would think that Monarch is looking at this stuff for sure!

But then again...one can dream too!

Billiken did an absolutely kick-butt set of Gort & Klaatu in vinyl several years ago. The Michael Rennie likeness is amazing - so amazing that Lunar Models cast the head, added a goatee, and slapped a badly sculpted body under it for their LIS "Keeper" figure, as far as I can tell.
Thanks for the encouragement, MMM!

Aurora missed so many good ideas, and put out so many strange airplanes and weird old cars that I had no interest in as a kid. They were stuck in the past.
Clint Eastwoods 'man with no name' should have been a no brainer for a figure, or Raquel Welchs 'cavegirl'.

Agreed. Too bad some of them never saw the light of day, like that War of the Worlds diorama with the three Martian flying machines.

"Punch 'em chop 'em baldies"; I LIKE that! The article reminds me that I was one of the many who wrote Aurora requesting the Jupiter II. And I just remembered that I wrote it in pencil, too.
