Plastic is fantastic and boy howdy don't we know it! This issue, AFM is heading out on a safari, a styrene safari that is, and we're out to track down all the latest and greatest injection molded kits and throwin' them on the bench. Things are off to a fun and creepy start with a trip to 1313 Mocking Bird Lane to see what Moebius' 'Herman' and 'Grandpa' "Munster" kits have brewing in the lab. Then prepare for a wild ride through the dark marshes of Romney with a marauding, customized 'Scarecrow' conversion straight out of Hell. Next catch some waves with an amazing "Batboat" water diorama that makes a 'joke' out of 'Batman' and 'Robin,' and then prepare to get thoroughly soaked by the 'Gillman' as he rides to the Black Lagoon on custom crafted Jet Ski. Comic book fans will geek out in pleasure with the heavy metal pairing of Moebius' "Iron Man" and "Warhammer" kits while Polar Lights' all new "Superman" breaks free of the ties that bind. Spearheading our Drastic Plastic coverage will be an insider's look into Round 2's massive corporate world of modeling brands such as AMT, MPC, Lindberg and Polar Lights. Also featured will be Gorgo from Monarch Models, Blackbeard from Atlantis Models, the Forbidden Planet Saucer, and much more; so get set all you slap-happy modelers, AFM #57 is going to seriously get drastic for plastic making all your styrene dreams come true with a parade of customized, kit bashed creations guaranteed to snap off your sprues and squeeze the ol' glue tube dry! All this and so much more from your figure model buds who put the 'Zing' in Amazing!
