Frankie and His Little Bride

The 'box' art for this kit.

The 'box' art for this kit.

Here is another of Garage Kits.US whimsical scenes involving classic monsters of the silver screen interacting with Trick o' Treating youngsters. This setting probably has the most famous movie monsters of them all, Frankenstein (albeit a more harmless one) hovering over a little miss as the Bride who is about to share some of her Halloween loot.

As with the other kits in this line, the quality of the resin casting is superb with very little clean up needed. I may have found perhaps four areas where seam lines were evident (mostly around fingers) but these were quickly corrected with small files and/or sanding sticks.

There are no assembly instructions with these kits nor are any needed. The part placement is obvious with the only decision the builder might have is positioning the two figures on the highly detailed base.

I used the same color scheme for this build that roughly matched that of the scene as shown on the web page. My only 'change' was that I weathered the picket fence at the rear of the scene. As it turns out, painting was the most time consuming part of this project and, of that, most was waiting for things to dry. I pre-painted all the part prior to assembly which might have taken two hours tops if I had timed it as a single step. This is a great beginner's kit but challenging enough during the painting step to satisfy the novice. 11/1/19
