That is really beautiful work and I, for one, would love to see more from Tom.

Oh so would I!

Here are some pics of a wild cool Brother Rat Fink build by UMA's own Mark McGovern:







Mark built this Brother Rat Fink for model kit collector Mike Blanchard who owns The Core comic shop in Cedar Falls, Iowa.

It's a shame what Photobucket has done to these sites losing all the photos or blurring them.  I killed my account with them, using a new one so hopefully we won't see that happen again.  Lot's of great stuff on here tho.  I remember Weldon from way back, he does some crazy kool work!  I didn't know you had a specific thread for this or would have posted my stuff here.  I will in the future.

This is a Rat Fink I did for Von Franco a few years ago.  I never get tired of building these little guys....

Here's a couple more Rat Finks I did.  One was for Mike Wolfe from American Pickers, the other went to a client/ friends and it matches their show winning chopper motorcycle.....

I heard he had some health issues years ago, but not sure.

Well here's one more before I call it a day, Roth's "Mothers Worry".  This was a commissioned piece I did for one of my regular clients who also digs anything Roth!
