The kit is good quality, but the presentation is lacking. A cheap paper cut-out label for the clapperboard, and no painting details. But, I salute the fact it's manufactured in the country of origin - USA!
A long awaited kit, but the instructions show the feet reversed, there should be a nicer decal and for the novice or newer modeler there should be painting decals or tips, I didn't need that but newer modelers might, a great kit nonetheless.
I really enjoyed assembling and painting this model. "This Island Earth" is one of my favorite films, and the Mutant a great movie monster. The model is very detailed and the fit is good. Painting it was a joy. Great possibilities for interpretation. Was not enthused about the graphic provided for the clapboard mounted to the base, so I replaced it with a lobby card from the 1955 film. Overall, well worth the wait.
A decal or sticker for the nameplate would have been nice.
