From the desk of Bucky:
The Jungle Fox was one of the first vehicles I had in mind in the infancy of the project, when it was still "project 96".  As one of my favorite vehicles as a child, it was something I had long thought about painting up, but never had a real good reason until the project came along.  Skidmark follows a very popular recipe, one of those figures that is so easy to make that everybody should do it.
 Hawk was the last figure I made, at the last minute.  As I was reading all the filecards that GI Trekker and Justin (generalsjoes.com) had written up, as well as the tagline Oreobuilder had wrote, Hawk was mentioned a lot, yet we had no representation.  I slapped the body together, made sure that the paint wouldn't chip, and borrowed the head from Dusty79's Throttle figure.
