This is my first of many entries into the Hall of Fame for DIY-Independent-Underground & Guest Model boards.

1986 SHUT Super Bad! If you have one of these your name is either Rodney Smith or you just broke out of Rodney Smith’s office at SHUT Headquarters.. I am not sure if this was the first SHUT board or if it was that crazy clown one, maybe someone knows but this is definitely one of my favourites. Rodney told me a lot of harsh chemicals went into making these boards back in the day so if you do have one maybe you are not so lucky. The closest I have to one of these is a NOS SHUT Assault Vehicle given to Weepy by Rodney then given to me by Weepy…thats how it worked sometime back in the day…lotsa cools stuff traced back to Rodney.  SHUT and Rodney have grown incredibly since their DIY days into an International brand par excellance  they deserve a couple more entries into this Hall of Fame from their earliest years and I will get to those soon enough.

If you have any  suggestions for additions to the DIUGM HOF you can email me and I will add them to the laundry list.

Cheers,

Jason

    I think the first Shut boards had spray paint graphics. I had one that was a shark shape, grey with black splatters and Shut across the bottom lengthwise. Wish I still had it now.
