Remains: 1961 Aurora Frankenstein Model Resurrected

3

About 4 years ago my husband surprised me by bringing home a project for us. It was a box of various pieces of vintage 1960’s Universal Monster Models made by Aurora. He bought them from a co-worker who had previously put them together and painted them as a kid… hence why they became a fun “project” for us.

As you may recall we completed the Creature From The Black Lagoon and decided to give that one to our tattoo artist and friend Kenny as a thank you gift. The rest would remain in our collection to add to Universal Monster themed living room.

Well the project of completing Frankenstein, Dracula and the Wolfman came to a screeching hault because before we knew it I was in the hospital having surgery after surgery. Well I am happy to say that things have slowed down and I spent part of my weekend completing Frankenstein while watching The Little Mermaid. Seems like I should have been watching that when I did the Creature model instead but I needed an Ariel fix.

So here are some shots I took of the model right before I painted it….

And here are photos of it after I painted it and my husband put it all back together.

Will post once we complete Dracula and The Wolfman! Can’t wait to have them side by side on our shelf!
