Containing Multitudes Since 2004
I had one of these back in the day. It kinda creeped me out after a while.
Its certainly a tasteful toy. I want one!
Jeez I "built" one too. Also built the Tijuana Taxi
Yep, I built that one. (& the TJ Taxi Too)Looking at the ad brings flashbacks, I clearly remember all the little 'chrome-plated' plastic parts - - hubcaps, grille work, etc. - - and how you had to sort of shave the chrome off wherever you were going to apply that smelly Testor's glue, or it wouldn't hold. I remember the skeletal 'desert fox' figure winding up a total sticky mess. Very difficult to get his arms to stick out perpendicular to the body without sagging.I remember thinking it was very cool, but at the time being unclear on who Rommel was. I also remember how I basically sucked at building models, and how the finished product never looked as good as the picture, though the process was fun.
