|was'nt very taken by this kit at first, but my curiosity got the better of me and I broke down and got it.Not being a fan of vinyl kits, I was'nt even sure if I would start it when it came in,but something about it (beside the fact that it's a Clive Barker design) drove me forward. The design was thought out well, and went together very good, although the section where the upper and lower torso go together was a little tough to conceal. One thing that had to immediaely go was the huge schlong that this thing has. I display my kits openly around my house, and I will never understand why some kits are made with penises that would make John Holmes jealous! Doing the plastic surgery (pun intended) on this creepy critter made things a bit more difficult, but not impossible. The altar is hollow, with an open bottom, so it took a ton of filler and resin.If it's not at least partially filled, it wlll be top heavy and hard to pin the figure to. The Demon is'nt heavily detailed, but I believe it has plenty to comlpiment it, and a lot would have taken away from Mr. Barkers concept.For those who collect box art and instructions, these are done nicely and better than most I have seen lately.|
