Description

The Classic Ed Big Daddy Roth's Rat Fink is back this time from Atlantis. This Rat Fink figure stands a full 6 inches tall and features wild beady clear eyeballs. Goes great with Model Car displays-and other Monsters! Ideal for mounting on car dashboards or on rear window decks. Classic box art completes the package. Built up done by Bill Engar from DemBrudders. Easy assembly. Skill level 2.

Ed "Big Daddy" Roth was a larger than life spokesman for the Revell model company in the 1960s. He designed and built wild show rods that later became some of Revell's most famous model car kits. Roth was a key figure in Southern California's Kustom Kulture and hot rod movement of the late 1950s and 1960s. In addition to the show rods, Ed "Big Daddy" Roth also created some famous characters such as the Rat Fink. It all started for Ed in a small garage in Southern California where he did pinstriping and detailing on all kinds of cars. In addition to pinstriping cars, Big Daddy was famous for airbrushing wild t-shirts. It was on these t-shirts that we got to first see Ed's wild characters like the Rat Fink. Then, just like they had done with Ed's wild cars, Revell made plastic model kits of Ed's famous characters such as the lovable Rat Fink, Mr. Gasser, Surfink and Scuz-fink. Atlantis Models keeps the tradition going by re-issuing "Big Daddy"s wonderful creations in all their original glory.
