Pegasus WOTW

War of the Worlds, the 1953 George Pal version, is one of my favorite movies ever. The Martian War Machine moving down the street in Los Angeles is one of the best scenes in the movie.

This 1/48th scale model by Pegasus model only includes a few parts and is easy to assemble. It is mounted on a base that looks like the Earth.

Pegasus Hobbies has been licensed by Paramount Pictures to make several War of the Worlds items from the George Pal movie.

The model version is molded in a slightly off white plastic with green parts for the weapons bits.

The clear parts are in this little bag. They go on the front and ends as well as some of the undersides. This is a great model and at 1/48th scale they will work for 1/72nd scale, 60mm and even 28mm figures. The model is accurately scaled from the movies models and very precise.
