Ed Big Daddy Roth - Custom Cars & Monsters

Surf Fink Drawing
A precursor to Surf Fink.

"I can do some pretty righteous stuff with mud, or sand, or even with Bondo, but not clay! And clay characters are what the Revell hombres needed to make injection molds. Luckily, Revell hooked me up with this real shy guy, Harry Plummer (Hello, Harry! Ya still kickin'?). Harry & I created monsters beyond my worst nightmares."
- Ed Roth, from Confessions of a Rat Fink
