The Morlock kit is back in production. When Lunar Models closed it's doors we bought the existing molds and tooling from them to produce the Morlock kit.
The kit is now again available .

Jerry Downing has been patiently waiting for its reissue and so I had him do a build up of the kit for our site. We've repalced the plastic loin cloth with real fabric for a much more realistic look and have included patterns for the the fur.

Here is Jerry's take on the reissue:

The parts straight out of the box are well cast and required only the usual clean-up common to resin. This was a very enjoyable build and I'm proud of the results. You've created a great kit here and, as the saying goes, if I can do it ANYBODY can! Thanks again for the opportunity, —Jerry
The arms and feet joined to the body nicely
The only extensive filling required was at the back of the ankles where there were air pockets in the leg casting. I used Tamiya white putty and, after sanding, used a white, sandable primer.
I painted the entire figure with a light tan base coat. Over this I applied shadows and highlights. I then airbrushed a semi-transparent layer of blue over the figure.
I was a little nervous about applying the fur but found that it was actually fairly easy. The patterns worked great though I did trim the length of the shoulder piece so it fit better between the shoulder pieces and I made the relief cuts in the head pieces a little larger to help them fit more closely around the head.
The fir supplied suits the scale of the figure perfectly. I put together the loincloth as per the instructions using thinned-down acrylic paint for the tint.
Painting and assembly of the base was very straightforward.
