Painting was a fairly straightforward affair though I wanted to add a little more to it. In the original “Fly”, the head was somewhat
larger than a human head whereas in this sequel the head is tremendous to the point where one wonders how the hapless scientist could even stand up much less walk around with it. Anyway, I wanted to present a compound eye effect like a real fly, so I coated
the eyes with PVA glue and then sprinkled them with very fine sand. Once the glue had set, I dry brushed them with iridescent gold, purple and green. I think it came out pretty good.
This is a nice kit though I wondered why they went with such a small size, roughly six inches in height with the base. I would have preferred that MOTM had come out with an 1/8 scale Aurora sized monster
kit which would have looked great posed with my other figures but perhaps there were financial reasons for that choice. 1/6/22
