This is the most recent release by USGarage Kits Halloween Nightmares line called The Brain. Though it resembles the monster in the “Fiend Without A Face”
film (my favorite 1950's B film BTW), it also has elements of “The Brain From Planet Arous” and Audrey from “The Little Shop Of Horrors”. For this reason, painting this bad boy proved to be a bit of challenge since it has tentacles,
the 'spine' tail and a mouth that looks something like a Venus fly trap. Because of this, I decided to treat each element separately (color wise) and blend the appendage junctions in a way that wasn't too visually jarring (hopefully).
As I've stated numerous times, these resin kits are by far the cleanest castings I have ever worked with and that includes 'regular' plastic model kits. I found one
tiny seam on the tail of the Brain monster and no bubbles to speak of on anything else. A bit of filing was needed on various pieces to get a better fit on the insertion tabs but that is to be expected. Detailing is fabulous and I would like to see the sculpting
process just to get a clue on how he does it Troy McDevitt sculpted this kit.
is the case with these kits, no assembly instructions are included although the box art helps with this should you get any. This kit had no box art since I ordered this directly from GarageKits who ship using USPS boxes with the components in Ziploc bags and/or
bubble wrapped. They did have a unpainted build up on their site (https://garagekitsuscolors.com/products/the-brain.html ) which helped immensely in me
trying to figure out the limb placement on the Brain which was confusing.
The little girl sculpt seemed more cartoonish to me than the others in this series for some reason, possibly do to her massive Afro hair style and slightly out of proportion body
parts. She's still cute nonetheless.
