This is PIZZA FINK. Gary staeted with a shifter knob casting for th head and built the body with Sculpty Clay and plastic mopieces from other models. The pizza is plastic and paper pieces gary fabricated and painted with acrylic paints ...and it looks good enough to eat. The Swiss Cheese was created from Sculpy Clay too.

My late friend GARY PRITCHETT made these next few models. He used other plastic FINK models, and Sculpy Clay to come up with his renditions of some of the old ROTH water-slide decals. I finished TRIXIE from a resin piece he had poured and all of these were donated in his name to The Petersen Automotive Museum ...hope you like them.
The first one is CHICKEN SHIFT:
Gary was quite the artist. He worked as a security guard at night and would often come up with something new ...here's TRIXIE:
More of Gary's FINKS to come ...Weldon
