Illustration of making Godzilla



Illustration of Mitsuo Suzuki published in this book. Mr. Suzuki later worked as an artist in a part-time modeling job in the early Toho special effects such as Godzilla. This depicts the first Godzilla’s costume. The following is a commentary by Suzuki. “It is a diagram that Mr. Kaihen has a Japanese paper on the tail of Godzilla. The figure behind is a kiln that burns Godzilla. I remember it is about 2m x 3mx 3mx 2m. think that the infrared lamp (thermal bulb) had about 40 pieces. Inside, the tin (thin iron plate with tin plating) was stretched and the heat was strengthened. Because it is thin, it is easy to process, and it will reflect the heat and reflect the heat well.”
