Super Fuzz has jumped out into a big lead here with Speed Shift still stuck at the starting gate.

Something wrong here. I don't see that your vote for Speed Shift registered.

Speed Shift was my pick as well! The excellent paint job you did on yours was a major contributing factor behind my choice.

It was these cool ads that ran in DC comic books in late 1964 that drew my attention to the Monogram Fred Flypogger kits and left me a fan for life:

Looks like I just helped  out the Super Fuzz cause.  Gaining quite a lead now.

My favorites are (1.) Super Fuzz!, (2.) Flip Out!, and (3.) Speed Shift!. If only Revell would reissue them, with new molds, sized up to match the Roths and Weird-Ohs in scale. Am I unrealistically asking too much?

Funny you should ask, "Super Fuzz" is the last model I finished.  I wasn't too great a fan of the Monogram kits, as they seemed merely to be jumping on the monsters-in-cars bandwagon.  But that type of model is especially suited for many interpretations, which is always cool to see.  Here's what I came up with:

That's a really, really nice build! I don't know if Monogram jumped on the bandwagon so much as they corrected an oversight, by finally putting into kit form the work of one of the best "Weirdo Hot Rod" artists, Stanley Mouse (who first began producing his airbrushed T-shirts in 1959, after meeting and working with Ed Roth).

No! Send Revell a letter.

And quality wise the Monogram Fred Flypogger kits were better than the Hawk Weird-Ohs.

How about using a super Fuzz head as part of a crazy, clean-cut blonde surfer dude?

'Drinkin' a shake instead of a brew.

Well that's an interpretation I haven't seen before!  Nice, seamless conversion, Bats.
