Wade A. Minut Weird-Oh’s Model Build – Hawk Model Co.

Hawk Model Company’s “Wade A. Minut – The Wild Starter” plastic model from their Weird-Oh’s Car-icky-tures line.

I liked the base model but really wanted the kit to look more like the Wade A. Minut depicted in the box art. The video details my efforts and limited success.

Modifications To The Kit

This is the most I have ever customized a model and the process was as often challenging and frightening as it was fun and exciting. I don’t know if I would have been so bold had I not another set standing by.

I am happy with the end result but likely should have shaved the model head down more to accommodate the bulk of the hair. I also meant to add long nails and, in the end, lazed out.

The putty in the butt (pardon me) was added to stabilize the obviously top-heavy piece. This was likely a mistake as the added weight of the putty put an awful strain on the ankles, necessitating the base. Had I it to do over (say – I do!) I’d fill the feet, not the butt.

I also lightly back-filled the face with putty prior to filing and shaping.

Wade A. Minut …

At various stages throughout the process, I was tempted to either stop or change direction – then I remembered the second run of the model in the box. Thanks, Hawk Model Co.!

    My comment for the hair was for the Wade A. Minut weird ohs model kit you made.Just wanted to know where to get the hair?

  3. Thanks, Edward. It was a lot of fun to do! The hair is just simple black craft fur – you should be able to find it at a local fabric shop or hobby store. I used hot glue to affix it and hairspray to spike it. The process kind of freaked me out but I was quite happy with the results.
