KIT # 425
PLASTIC: Off White
BOX SIZE: 13"X4"X2"
WORK IN PROGRESS:
|Towards the end of the run of the longbox monster kits, Aurora issued the "Guillotine" kit. This was the only torture device kit issued in longbox form, and was obviously a precursor for the "Monster Scenes" torture and lab scene kits. It functions perfectly, and can be used again and again, for hours of "harmless fun!".|
"In the same year  Aurora also issued the fully functional Guillotine kit. It was meant to be the first in a series, based upon ultimate penalty devices, called The "Madame Tussaudīs" Chamber of Horrors. Other kits planned were The Rack, Gallows, Hanging Tree and The Electric Chair. The 1/15 scale Guillotine was only manufactured in 1964 in the U.S. due to parental protests to its violent nature."

This is a set of photographs of a kit that never got beyond the prototype stage. You'll notice that it has design elements in common with the "Guillotine" as it was meant to continue the Madam Tussaud's Torture Device longbox series.
The Electric Chair
were two more gruesome kits intended for the Madame Tussaud's series that
never made it. Too morbid for the wholesome suburban household of the '60s!

I got mine, it's missing two pieces. The back of the skull, and a bracket for the crankshaft. I think I can scratch build them both.
Stay tuned and we'll see!.
