John Carpenter's adaptation of Stephen King's novel, Christine, is one of my favorite horror films, and easily in my top 5 books King has written. There's not much that has been made from the movie, and there's not really anything that can be made toy or model-wise that would be profitable aside from making Christine herself. Although there are flesh and blood characters, the star is Christine, and she's the one everyone wants (no pun intended).
This model kit manufacturers Round 2 Models, not only nailed the 1958 Plymouth in all it's glory, but made it sizable and affordable. This beauty is only $27.99, and well worth it. I'm actually seriously considering buying this one myself.
Here's the full product details taken from Round 2's site, HERE:
- Scale 1/25
- Skill Level: 2 (ages 10 and up)
- Glue assembly, pain required
- Injected in red
- Modern Tooling
- Vinyl tires with whitewall inserts
- Super-detailed chassis, motor and interior assemblies
- A full sheet of optional decals
Honestly, I've never done a model kit and I've only dabbled in painting. So all of the instructions to assemble and paint are mumbo jumbo to me, I'd just have someone put it together and color it for me. But for such an affordable price, I think it's even worth the purchase even if it gets left in the package which I'm sure is adorned in the movie art.
Christine is available now to order through various online retailers, but I always go with Entertainment Earth.
