    Cool old models ! I'd be interested in a couple but I went thru every link on every page of the website and there's no place to order anything .

    Thanks and I understand completely . While I do like building Toon models I've stayed away from the Weird-ohs , they just seem to be poorly done from the get go , in fact the last time I built one was 56 years ago ! It takes a bunch of plastic surgery to make one look decent but it's worth the effort , I hope you give Freddy a shot some time .

    A little fun building this for the "Ed Roth - Rat Fink - Weird-Ohs Reunion Contest" . It's built to appear box stock but the only parts not modified or replaced are his hands , the steering wheel , and his helmet . I started by redoing the eyes , moving them closer together and adding a more pronounced brow line . His body was narrowed about 1/2 inch and the arms were molded into the body , then a racing suit was simulated by adding the velcro collar and appropriate stitching with paint . It's finished by modifying his parachute to replicate a WWII pack and harness , along with a release lever . Digger's hot rod was also narrowed , reshaped , and a new cowl/firewall added so it looks like a T-Bucket . The frame is drilled and new front suspension added along with wheels/tires from Acme Diecast . Rear tires are modified Gridiron Grabber parts and the rear wheels from Forward Resin were modified to fit . The engine is from an Eye Gone Wild kit as are the modified headers . Mounting brackets were added to the Moon tank and a "Flying Eyeball" was added to the shifter . Finally the tire smoke and flames were made from sheet plastic and I printed my own decals .
