The big battle here seems to be between Brother Rat Fink and Scuz-Fink for second place.

Rat Fink, the one and only.
Really enjoyed building Scuz Fink, and Brother Rat was fun too.

Unlike the Hawk Weird-Ohs, the actual sculpts of the Revell "Big Daddy" Roth kits were extremely well done and fully up to the quality of the box art. Here are some great examples built by our fellow UMA member Zombywoof:

Rat Fink





Scuz-Fink





Brother Rat Fink





Superfink





Angel Fink





And here's an absolutely wild customized build-up done by our fellow UMA member Weldonmc:

Surfink

Here are the rest of my Roth models, i'm building Fink Eliminator at the moment, and have Mothers Worry, Surf Fink and Boss Fink with Tweedy Pie left to build to complete my collection.
Just got to get back to building, i seem to be taking a break.  :o
thanks hepcat, this may get me going again!





Here are the resin pices for Boss Fink with Tweedy Pie. I have a Tweedy kit from 1964 i've been saving for this project.

We're eagerly awaiting your finished results!

In the meantime, we still need a picture of a finished Mother's Worry kit in this thread. Here's one built and customized by Weldonmc:

Wow, Rat Fink contest.
hmmm
Favorite is Fink Eliminator, the box art alone on both the  original and then the Lodela and then the 1990 box are amazing.
Mother's Worry next favorite, wish they would have kept the wolf sculpture like the box pic instead of the rounded out ears and goofy fat jaw but he is still cool
Scuz Fink  box art is super cool as is bizarre kit.
Drag  Nut
and of course the elusive RAT FINK IN LOTUS FORD.

wait till I get my hands on one, you will see my collection  then.
