You guys that have been around the site for a while have heard of "SUPERMODELER".......it had to happen! Yep, 1/8th scale resin replicas of the SMC icon...SUPERMODELER are going in clay as I write this post...here's a couple of photos, just got started on it today so it's still a bit rough, I'll post in progress pics if you guys want to see 'em. HFC knows him personally!:eek:

Yes, Dan, Supermodeler does have a sidekick. He goes by the name of Slick. He's an expert hot rod builder. Supermodeler's utility belt is the best. It has all the hand tools you need to build anything. He's looking good. A very good likeness.

Hey Don, do another drawing of Slick. What's his girlfriend's name?

Well HFC, as you know Slick just went through a very painful breakup with his long time high school girlfriend...last time I saw him he was muttering something about help, help me Ronda.:confused:

It's looking very familiar, Don, almost freaky the way you caught the internal essence.

Update on SuperModeler & friends........
I'm making a base to put SuperModeler on and thought I would include a few of Slick's buddies. Here's a couple of photos of one of them.

I don't think so. Looks like we're getting a mascot. Instead of Big Daddy and Rat Fink, it's Supermodeler and Slick. We need T shirts.

Just havin' a bit of fun guys....SuperModeler will have it's own base to mount it on and there will be several mini rats scurrying around.:eek:

Guido...Slick will be next, with his "new" girlfriend.
There will be version of Slick that will give new meaning to the term "Rat Rod", all in 1/8th scale.2thud2

HFC....Slick's cousin will make his debut as well (our version of the Rat Fink).:confused:

Full color ScaleMotorcars T-Shirts are on the drawing board in several versions.:D :D :D

I've had to deal with some personal biz that cut into my time 1sad1 but that situation is 'bout handled. So it's back to building.:)

Here's the first of 3 mini rats, just about done...little more clean up and detail needed....they will go on the mounting base for SuperModeler.....running for their lives...hickory...dickery...you know the rest.

I was doing a bit of bragging while showing my wife our cool site and all the great work that everybody does.........and then she saw Don's rat. "Are you guys into hood ornaments too?" she asked.

Don, if you get a strange phone call from a lady in Canada looking for a Xmas gift for her man, just hang up. LOL!!!

Oh man, I'm totally blown away. This opens up another diorama idea. Think of an old school rod parked at a Route 66 type drive-in diner with the rats as the driver and all the other characters. Ah well, maybe it's due to too much lacquer fumes.

Thanks Sean, but I can't take all the credit, I have a magic crayon that was given to me by the sugar plum fairy for doing a good deed a number of years back.2thud2

Mini Rat is almost done....still have some sanding and shaping to do on the feet and hands, and I still have to make a skate board to put it on.
