Monogram Fred Flypogger kits!
« on: January 07, 2011, 10:26:20 AM »
I was a big fan of Monogram's three Fred Flypogger kits by Mouse as a kid primarily due to these cool ads that ran in DC comic books:



I have all three original kits M.I.B. in my model kit collection. I wish Monogram had released more of them. How many others like the Mouse Fred Flypogger kits?

Those are very cool! It would be nice if Monogram reissued them.

Monogram did reissue Super Fuzz and perhaps the others just a few years ago in the exact same boxes. Here's a build-up somebody did of Super Fuzz:

That is nice! I am going to have to track them down. I think I may have seen them at the hobby shop I go to every once in awhile.

Super Fuzz is the only Mouse kit to be reissued as far as I know.  I think sales were low and plans to do the others were scrapped.

I have an original Speed Shift unbuilt kit! It is complete with all parts including the blue eyeballs! ;) I also have an original ad from a 1965 DC Comics Metal Men comic in color and a black & white ad for the Fred Flypogger contest in 1965 from an unknown magazine or comic.

Just like our cats...not too interested in boxed models. But they sure do love to get at the finished ones!  ;D

Another fellow that had a great deal to do with the times was Stanley Miller ...aka MOUSE! He is probably most known for his concert poster work for the Gratefull Dead. His MONSTER art is not as easily found as Big Daddy's these days. Miller also had a line of models with Monogram during the mid 60's ...Fred Flypogger.

All I have to offer here are some colored drawings. I know allot of you will recognize them:











If you like these ...I have quite a few more.
I love building and painting RAT FINK models
