"Groovy" kit builder circa mid 60's

"All of us could take a lesson from the weather, it pays no attention to criti cism." -North DeKalb Kiwanis Club Beacon

Welcome to issue #16, our tribute issue to ol' fire breath himself, Godzilla. We hope that this issue does not end up as a eulogy for the green guy, but the rumors are out there. Perhaps this will be like the Superman "dies" hoopla. We can only hope.

This issue's cover is courtesy of John Tucky's building and photo prowess. You can read how John created this towering diorama in his "Exacto Facto" column in this issue.

To give you an idea of some of the Godzilla kits that are available out there, Paul Gill, and Dave Barker, sent in some photos of their collections. John Carlson (Monstrosities) also tries to update us on the future of our favorite giant lizard.

Mark Paskell ("California Connection") lays a "bite" of praise on a true horror movie legend, Bela Lugosi. Plus he gives us a seventh row center look at some of the major movies being planned in Hollywood.

Rich Larson goes back to one of his favorite hobby topics, painting. This issue he uses a new Nosferatu kit as his subject matter. Speaking of painting, Tommy Ellis [Tom & Jerry Studio] and Jean Elliott share with us some of their painting tips on a Pumpkinhead & Beach Blanket Beastie kit, respectively.

Alfred Florez took a one dimensional movie memory and made it into a three dimensional display piece. How he tamed this beast can be found in this issue.

We are trying to play catch-up with the many "Collectors Corner" photos that you send in. So we tried to cram as many as space allowed in this issue. Enjoy!

KitBuilders would like to apologize to Cargos Sendra for accidentally omitting his name from the Chiller Theatre photo review last issue. Carlos was the one that took those great photos that we ran.
