Morning all! Here is another strange little custom/kitbash from the dogghouse!
The reason for the creation of this fellow is Bobby Darin's 1959 version of the
song Mack the Knife. I was listening to WXPN, a public radio station out of
Philadelphia, Pa one night when the song came on. I got to wondering what
the origin of the song was, so I "wikied," it and was amazed at what I found!
The song is based on a 1928 German opera, "The Three Penny Opera," which
in turn was based on a 17th century, "murder ballad!" Turns out old Mack was a pretty evil *******! I thought damn, this dude is right up my alley
Instead of getting long winded on the subject I'm providing a link if you wish
to do further research
HEAD: freebie from BUK, when I took advantage of his sale. Thanks dude!
sinister acrylic paints by me!
OUTFIT: Tong Ninja shirt, not sure of the pants, got them from Todd Waters
BOOTFEET: From my boy Fred aka BlackKryptonite, paint by me.
Knife is just cut and painted plastic.
Thanks for looking and enjoy;
"Heh, Heh, Heh, Heh, Heh!!!"
"Checkout those pearly whites!"
