Huey`s Hut Rod

 

The "Weird-Oh's" kits were designed by Bill Campbell, and were originally released by Hawk in the sixties.

 

These comical kits featured bug eyed, big toothed monsters, crazed race car drivers, wacky beach bums, and far out rock and rollers.

 

This one is made by LINDBERG from the original HAWK vintage molds.


All parts sprayed with Spray can, flat black, then hand painted in enamels and acrylics, and I dry brushed a lot...

 

This was a fun little kit, mostly boxstock, although the nice thing about these kits is the creative freedom, the only thing that's changed is the shifter, the hat, hair & added fuel line.

 

Hope, you like it.

Isn't that the reason for the corn cob on top of the shifter?
