GODZILLA Model Kit Re-issue (Monogram, 1978)

Here's our old friend, the Aurora Godzilla model kit, once again, this time re-issued by the Monogram company, in 1978.  They even retained the "Glow-In-The-Dark" features from the 1969 & 1972 Aurora re-issues.
They did a good job on the box art though--it's colorful and engaging.  Eye-catching, even.
And, it's always nice when a model company gives you a photo of the finished model, rather than a painting that kids could never live up to.
And, they even attempted to give Godzilla a short bio: "The best-known of all monsters, Godzilla has starred in 17 classic films."  I think model kits were one of the first products I ever saw that actually had different languages printed on their packages...which today is commonplace.
I held out, and found a kit that had never even been removed from the plastic bags.  Notice the extra set of "Glow-In-The-Dark" parts, which includes a head, (end of) tail, hands, and dorsal plates. 

Here are scans of the instructions!

So, if you are keeping track now, this is the fourth version of this model kit that there is to buy:
Godzilla (Glow-In-The-Dark re-issue, Monogram, 1978)

It's about time to re-issue this kit again, don't you think?
