This an AMAZING kit brought to you by Moebius and BRAVO for such an wonderful kit. This kit is intended for a more equipped modeler because it contains 70 pieces and alot of research and skills to put it together. It is NOT intended for newbies since it requires pre planning on assembling some part and pre painting other parts. You will also need Apoxie Sculpt for some areas as well in order to hide seams and do some blending. Kit comes complete with a detailed map on how to assemble it however,avoid the color instructions given for her face and skin tone. I suggest looking at several actual photographs of Cassandra Peterson in her full makeup to get the eye color and makeup exact. This is NOT easy by any means since it involves you actually researching the makeup and you WILL be amazed! All in all it does take a great deal of time and investment to put this together. IN THE END YOU WILL BE REWARDED. Elvira comes with her 1988 movie dog pal, Gonk as well as a skull,a rat,rug monster and a creepy hand emerging from under her Victorian couch. Her couch sits on top of a very work out rug however the rug is oddly shaped and may not be a perfact fit. The finishing touch is a candelabra made of real brass and plastic accent candles. you might want to use some of that Apoxie scullt to fashion out some flames like I did.

This is a really fun model to build and paint. The reclining Elvira on the couch model is becoming hard to find so I suggest if your in the market to pick one up soon before they get expensive on e-bay.

If you are an Elvira fan this model kit is a must. I'm a long time fan and got both Moebius kits. I can't say any thing about durable or educational value. I got the creature from the black lagoon all threw Amazon and as always I have never been dissatisfied.

Thank you. I loved it. Cool Box. I like the three stooges. I like model figures of people, cars and dioramas.

This does not come with any paints at all. Hopefully it will have recommended colors to use once the recipient opens the box. I am not an avid model builder so I did not know this. Probably will need to get glue too!

This is a very nice model. The instructions are easy to read and the model is very beautiful when finished. I suggest anyone who loves Elvira to get this one.

Moebius did a great job with this release as the moldings are clean (as I would expect with a new kit), and the everything looks like a great representation of Elvira on her couch from her former television show. Extra detail items are included! I would recommend some experience with figure painting to get the most from this kit.

She is back in a re-issue but I have her from the original run.
