The unpainted version of this kit. It really doesn't look that bad in monotone grey, does it?
I think the first Stephen King story I ever read was “The Mangler” in the 1972 December issue of Cavalier magazine and I have been a fan
ever since. Little did I realize at that time that he would become one of the most prolific writers that have ever lived and whose writing style influenced a generation of authors, including yours truly.
This resin kit that I picked up on eBay is an attempt to display some of King's work, most of which is from film adaptations of his work, namely “Christine”, “It”,
“The Shining”, “Carrie”, “Pet Sematary”, and “Misery”. Some of the articles on display are tenuous at best such as the blood bucket from “Carrie” and the fire ax from “The Shining”. “Misery”
is represented by the book that King is holding with a clawed hand coming out of it (not sure what that is from, maybe “The Dark Half”(?)). The more obvious are a balloon & sewer opening from “It”, the blazing 1958 Plymouth Fury
from “Christine” and the hissing cat from “Pet Sematary”. King, wearing jeans and tee shirt, comes with two heads, one with glasses and other without. I elected to go with the one with out spectacles which I will explain later.
