    You’ve been calling this figure both “Dizzy” Dugan and “Skinny” Dugan. Which is it? i thought “Skinny” Dugan was a Maher.

  2. This is Bob Nellers original figure which he named Dizzy Dugan. Long before Skinny. If I called him Skinny it was in error. Thanks Dan

    Hi Scott,

    Thanks for bringing that to my attention. I’m the one that messed up when processing the videos. I’ll correct the problem in the next few days.

    Sorry for the confusion.
