Halloween Nightmares: The Ghoul

The 'box art' for this kit.

Another one of GarageKit.US Halloween Nightmares line of kits called “The Ghoul”. In it we see a fearless Trick Or Treater, costumed as a space cadet taking aim to blast away at the looming creature of the night. As is the case with all of the kits in this line, the amount of detail is astonishing and I can't imagine how the sculptor managed to accomplish it. For example, the hook & ladder clasps on the boy's galoshes actually have the slots that the metal tongue would snap into to secure the clasp. Amazing.

Anyway, I didn't stray very far from the color palette as seen in the photo with the exception of the bag of candy. The kit has a acetate sticky that you'd use for added decoration but I decided to go with a standard shopping bag color and leave it at that.

Assembly is pretty straightforward so no instructions are included (typical for these kits) although it is a little tricky when gluing the boy's arms and hand/ray gun assembly so everything lines up correctly. As with the other kits I have built, there is very little clean up along the lines of seams and/or bubbles which there were none. In fact, the seam lines are practically undetectable until you apply paint to the part in question. This is an irritation but a very minor one considering all the 'pluses' these kits have to offer.

So, as I have said in other reviews of this line of kits, they're great beginner kits though the painting COULD be a little daunting but care and a steady hand will result in a fine display piece. 11/7/19
