The Marmo Method Modelbuilding Guide #13 Building The Munsters Living Room
Richard Marmo is one of the founding members of IPMS/USA, member #2, yep, 2. He has been creating ebooks on how to build kits, photo journals and other stuff for a while. This time for issue 13 what better project than the Munsters Living Room.
Now you younger lads and lasses may not know The Munsters but those of us with a few more years under our belts are very familiar with this show that ran from 1964 to 1966 and then syndication. You can still find it on television today or watch it for free on Peacock.
The Munsters Living Room kit was originally released by Aurora back in the 60’s and then rereleased by Polar Lights in the late 1990s. Round2 picked up the license after Polar Lights went under however it is not currently in production.
As usual, Richard walks you through the build and painting process to get a great looking display but he also adds lots of hints and tips which are not only useful during this build but also with many other types of models.
Some examples of this are modifying clothes pins to be clamps in tighter spaces, painting a realistic wood finish and creating fire effects with paint and glazes.
If you have this kit in your stash, you should grab a copy of this ebook (also available in .epub, .mobi and pdf formats). Even if you don’t have this kit, the techniques are very useful in other builds.
Thanks to Richard and IPMS/USA for the review sample.
