Aurora Model Built Up 1963 HUNCHBACK ORIGINAL Lon Chaney Box

This listing is for an original Aurora Model Kit #481 - Built Up with Box. The Hunchback of Notre Dame.  The original art for the packaging was pulled from production in 1965 due to objections from Anthony Quinn, who portrayed Quasimodo in the 1956 version of the movie, as the character on the box resembled his portrayal of the monster. This art was replaced with a modified image of a shaggier-haired Hunchback - more resembling the Lon Chaney version from 1923. This artwork, although cropped and with "glow" tints, accompanied the square boxes that began in 1969.  The kit is 1/8 scale, produced in dark tan plastic, with some parts duplicated in glow plastic, and was sculpted by Bill Lemon. The original box art was painted by James Bama.
