  1. I was hoping to finish in time for the NNL theme in October but had some delay with working the figure and the Black Shadow,. Inspired by the famous picture from 1948 of Rollie Free setting a world land speed record The Figure started out as 'Adam' figure from Prieser, added shorts, and head from construction worker with modifying his hard hat to be a helmet, shoes from the trophy holding MPC figure. I had to rework the arms and hands, felt like Dr. Frankenstein cutting arms and adding putty The Black Shadow from IXO museum collections was modified with a die cast bicycle tire from an unknown blister toy. shaved the brake lines off the front fork, removing the stock seat and modifying the rear fender, found the flying wing for the tank off the AMT 289 cobra decal sheet. Base is Hobby Lobby stock plaque and baking powder for the flats Since the photo was in Black and White I conjectured on the colors, the helmet was noted as blue or red in stories of the ride greg

    Once found a missing part from a model my brother brought to me 2 weeks later in my gravel driveway! Suggestion if you have a hose type vacuum cleaner insert a piece of your wife's old hosiery in the hose to form a pocket in the hose and vacuum the area, the hosiery will catch the parts the carpet monster upchucks greg
