The Green Slime (1968)
This kit was all in all a straightforward build with no particular difficulties. The kit I received did not have a face place for the astronaut’s helmet and the diorama needed one. I cut a piece of clear blister pack plastic and wrapped it around a 1 inch dowel. I gently heated it with a heat gun making the plastic form to the contour of the dowel. After that it was simply a matter of cutting the piece to cover the astronaut’s face plate and gluing it in place.
The Green Slime (aka Gamma 3: Operation Outer Space) is a 1968 science-fiction film produced by MGM in the United States and shot in Japan at the studios of Toei Company by director Kinji Fukasaku. The film was spearheaded by Ivan Reiner and Walter Manley, the same creative team who produced similar Italian outings like Wild, Wild Planet.
