Dr. Henry Jekyll transforms into his evil nemesis Mr. Edward Hyde, based on Robert Louis Stevenson's classic tale of terror. This accurate reproduction package includes the original "Aurora" logo from the original release.
The Moebius kit of Dr. Jekyll as Mr. Hyde consists of just 46 parts molded in styrene. Originally produced by Aurora in the 1960's, Moebius has cleaned up the molds somewhat and detail is pretty good. Fit of the large main components is good. Flash is minimal. As the kit contains a base and a lot of detail parts, what you will have when finished is a free standing vignette.
Perfect for modelers that grew up in the 1960's and for any fan of monster movies, this kit will be fun to build and paint! The kit is worth the price for the vintage Aurora box art alone!
My sincere thanks to Moebius Models for this review sample!
