Slaphappy North Tackles Big Daddy Roth's
SCUZ-FINK
With Ding-Bat

 



To build this kit, you've got to have a strong affinity for kit classics. Featuring poor fit, really bad part breakdowns, seams that run the length of detail areas, and surface textures that just kind of start and fade out to nothing, the Scuz Fink is a testament to just how far the science of kit production has come in forty years' time. Is it a fun kit? Yes. Can you get a keen result? Yes. But you're gonna work for it, because the engineering is rough.

Using my trusty heat gun, I re-set the arms on my kit for a more colorful (and less stiff) pose than the kit has out of the box. I replaced the kit antennae with darning needles, and the flag pole with a piece of brass rod. Scuzzy is painted with both enamels and acrylics. His main body is painted with Rustoleum "Hammered Metal" textured enamel. The base is an ashtray I picked up at the local flea market.
