Spotlight Review

"War of the Worlds: Great kit for lighting effects."
spacewatcher56 (Cincinnati, Ohio)
This is an excellent replica of the menacing war machine featured in the 1953 film, War of the Worlds. With a little patience and know-how, the kit can be effectively lit through the transparent parts. Although a bit more difficult, a flashing red LED will fit in the cobra head heat ray. Terrific model when completed.

"Fun! An Easy Build, May be too Simplistic for Advanced Modelers."
I'm a huge WotW fan and always thought the Martian War Machine was one of the best sci-fi designs to come out of 1950s sci-fi. There have been other kit versions of this craft in the past, but none really captured the shape and menace of the film version... until now. If you are a diehard WotW fan, this kit is for you. If you are a general model-building enthusiast but not necessarily keen on this specific source material, you might find this kit too simplistic. Personally, I just slathered metallic copper paint on the hull of my kit, then glued the whole thing together. The entire assembly took about an hour, even allowing for the paint to dry. One more thing... this may sound lame, but while I admire this kit, my favorite part to paint was the display base. I really went to town painting North America, the Atlantic Ocean, clouds, the Arctic... the works. Great fun.

"Martian War Walker sighted! Panic ensues!"
I gave this kit a high rating for such a simple model to build. It's no challenge for the accomplished model maker and absolutely perfect for a younger child or novice builder. The only disadvantage is the difficulty lining up the pins and receptacles on the top and bottom halves of the main hull. The model is an accurate representation of the Martian War Machine from the famous 1950s, George Pal movie, War of the Worlds. Th3e base is nicely molded with the North and South American continents. The base provides an opportunity to those with better painting skills (than mine. for sure) to add a lot of detail to the kit.

"War Machines Invade!"

What more can be said about this excellent model that the previous reviewer didn't already say so well? An easy build with pieces that fit so well it hardly needs cement. Colored see-thru parts that almost make it hard not to put some kind of lighting kit inside. I wish they designed kits this well back when I was a kid. Pegasus really has their act together. Please Pegasus, make a George Pal Time Machine kit this well!!
