Tell us what you have seen Aaron? Tell us? :mrgreen:

This is not an exact copy of the comic book cover, that is sure. He changed some things, like the hat 8) .

It is again a beauty Carlos! :thumbup:

That's another great motorcycle theme. You must be having fun with these pulp novel covers! I love how you interpret them rather than try to slavishly recreate them - wonderful, quirky stuff.

well, when I sculpted the figure of the girl I think that I got lost with certain parts of the anatomy ... it is that sometimes it is difficult to calculate the proportions on such a small scale... :wink:

Now which parts ended up just a little bit to voluptuous? Asking for a friend.

Yes!. Great movie.
Think the Zvezda GAZ m1 (1/72) could work...the GAZ m1 was similar to Bonnie and Clyde's Ford V8.
There are more than 150 bullet holes do make, MABO.

The same opinion I have about your "A Mobile Booking Cage for Harry Langdom" vignette applies here, Carlos. It's a very inspired and very well executed work. :drool: :drool: :drool:

Would be possible to see the creation process of the figures? It would surely let us speechless. ;-)

Best regards. :yeah:

What I still don't understand is why it's called "A straw for the thirsty".

Your question got me curious, so I did some research. I am afraid it was not too helpful. That phrase is not a common one in the United States.

The author of the comic book selected that phrase for the title of his comic, for whatever reason. Perhaps if we found a copy and read it, the reasons for the title might be found in the story.

From historical context and looking at the cover, it may mean something along the lines of the man and woman gangsters are desperate for money and find a way to get some.
