Eiji Tsuburaya Custom Tribute
Kong was made from a YMS-F Toys vinyl 1962 Toho Kong figure released just last year. By a terrific stroke of luck it came in the same scale as the resin Tsuburaya & Godzilla figures - this Kong suit has not been reproduced very often as a kit or as a toy.
In order to make Kong match Godzilla in height, I did have to 'extend' him by one inch by connecting his stomach and legs with wires and then filling the gap with putty, then detailing it to match the fur pattern. The arms were puttied and the shoulders 'bulked up' with putty to make him look larger.
