Mr. Hyde – Work In Progress

by Alex Castro

John Barrymore’s ” Mr. Hyde “, 1/6th Scale, Resin Model Kit by Janus, sculpted William Paquet. Work-in-Progress by Alex Castro

As a baby boomer growing up in the horror halcyon days of the late Sixties, this type of horror model holds a special place in my heart. This model of Mr. Hyde is a take off on Robert Louis Stevenson’s novel Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. John Barrymore classic version of Mr. Hyde was made by Janus and distributed by Monsters and Motion, sculptured by William Paquet. In my opinion of all the Hyde kits I would consider this model one of the best… It you are into horror figures, this is a must for your classic horror collection. It is hard to get and a collectible.

The kit has been widely painted and interpreted by many. In my version of Mr. Hyde, like Stevenson I wanted to show in particular the transformation of his face and hands to the lower bestial or evil emerging but not dominating his humanity fully!
