Fellow Fans of Plastic, Monsters, and..... Plastic Monsters!
is dedicated to two of my favorite things: monster movies and monster
models! I recently discovered all the reissues of the original
13AuroraMonster kits my buddies and I built and shared
back in the 60's and 70's, and I'm having a helluva good time
building them all over again, this time as a really "big kid!"
discovered that there are a lot of other terrific folks out there
living happily with their Peter Pan complexes, and I say - Godspeed,
you Plastic Emperors! I've really enjoyed looking at other modelers'
work, and have learned much from their sites. When I've borrowed content,
I've tried to include links back to as many of their sites as I could. Please,
let me know if I've missed any, I want to give all credit that is due!

am always seeking photos of models, both built-up and in kit form.
Of course, I'd love to see complete build-ups by fellow modelers, and will
happily give credit and place a link back to you. In particular, I'm seeking
photos of complete unassembled models laid out with all pieces visible.
These are great for reference in purchase and construction. I also like
larger scans of box and movie art, as these images maintain higher
levels of detail when reduced.
