The iconic Creature from the Black Lagoon in a classic pose, perched on a log at the bottom of the Black Lagoon just waiting for sexy Julia Adams to swim by. Not sure the origin of this piece but it is AWESOME.
Standing a little over 13" tall with a 10" wide base, this is one kit I had never seen before until I came across this one on EBAY over a year ago and I haven't seen one since. The workmanship and detail in this piece are just unbelievable. It is a truly a work of sculpturing art, think Venus De Milo! Look at the base the Creature rests on, a lot of work went into the casting of this piece.
When I got this, the Creature was bland looking, painted in a drab green color with minimal highlights and the base and everything on it was painted in nuetral/drab colors as well. The tree stump and rocks on the base were all a single color. IT WAS BLAH! So I took out the paints and brush and did it up the way I thought it should be, including use of paint with glitter on the Creature so he looks as if light from the surface of the Lagoon is shimmering down upon him as he rest at the bottom. A lot of work went into painting this. The whole thing has been sealed with Clear Gloss to maintain and protect the finish.
This one is definitely one-of-a-kind because of the paint job!
