New model for cafe! Elvira the Tarantula's cousin!

Whoo whoo!  I got a new model in the mail.  I have not splurged on models for the cafe in 4 years....So I ordered 4 of them.  My friend was kind enough to take the pics....
YES!  Four years ago I ordered the Gigantics model kits.  They only had the Mantis and the Scorpion.  Well I finally discovered Amazon!  So I decided to splurge and order the Tarantula.  I mean hell I HAVE a Tarantula named Elvira so....IT came boxed and unassembled.  I immediately put my waiters to work.  And wala!  Look at her!  So beautiful!  One waiter Pepe paints really well.  He did most of the work.

I really used to like doing models but with the cafe I have no time and really no inkling of doing them.  I did the Mantis four years ago on the left.  That is my work.  Hope you guys like it.  I put them in the display case at eye level for kids.  I want them to see giant insects terrorizing the towns....

AMT the producers of such Gigantics model kits did these three.  There was a fourth one released in the sixties and it was a Giant Wasp at an amusement park.  I have no idea why AMT never re released it.  I would love to own one.

  7. I was talking about Reporter Ben Ulrich's Nephew In the late 90's... An interesting take on the "Goblin"... The Nephew found a secret storage of Osborn's Supplies... High-tec Mask and all... And his "laughter"... He even defeated Arcade's "Murder-land"...
