A CNN gallery of Ed "Big Daddy" Roth's creations, now on display at Galpin Motor Sports in L.A.

Interesting trivia note: When The Mysterion was destroyed, it was recreated using the Revell kit as reference.

Further trivia: Revell sold over 11 million copies of the Tweedy Pie.

I was some what confused way back when I first learned there were two famous Big Daddys, (about 1964) although I think Roth was the first one I heard about.  He did build some crazy stuff.  I had the original Tweety Pie model and several others.  Thanks for sharing the link.
