The Mystery Machine


Recommended Posts

Got sidetracked by the arrival of an order from Hasslefree today, but I finished the freehand on one side of the van. It is far from perfect, but it is acceptable for tabletop. I sorta dread doing the other side, but it will be done... and I could use the practice.

I'd post a picture, but I'd have to reopen the hobby room to go take a picture... and that would involve allowing a swarm of cats back in there... which would involves shooing them all out afterwards... and likely missing one... who, due to being trapped in there all night, would pee in Berni's fabric stash...

Yeah, I'll post pics tomorrow.

Doc, lots of people use those. 50 call cans for storage. ..

Also, .45 ACP, and 5.56mm ammo come in those cans. They just have different markings. . .

George

Excellent point.

 

For more gear, how about:

tarp

sleeping bag(s)

tools

backpack(s)

Some one out there makes decals for the Mystery Machine. I'll see if I can dig up the manufacturer.

Loving the idea of removable cargo. It is why the Chinese make earth magnets.

 

Not a fan of That Giant Oil Drum. It looks too large. (Also the physics of 55 gallons of liquid, any liquid, in that one container on that poor van's roof...Ouch. But it could explain why Fred and Daphne are MIA...crushed by an oil drum rather than a zombie horde.)

 

eta: And yes, I know: cartoon physics... ...just don't let a coyote anywhere that massive drum, 'cause it will crush everything in its path to flatten him.

      I checked out the Scooby Doo cooperative game play looks like something fun to play with the kids (since he will probably be 10 when it delivers )

      I'm not quite happy with these; I was using a limited palette to evoke the cartoon show, but the figures kind of demand a bit more. Perhaps I'll go in there and tweak the skin tones a tad, do some more highlighting and shading on the clothes. And Fred's eyes need help.


       
      The facial expressions are awesome. Minis by Kev White and Hasslefree.

      These are from my year-end shelf of half-finished figures, which I am working on finishing.
       
      Hasslefree has many fun little nods to pop culture. These are some of my favorites. They are, of course, the entire Scooby gang from Scooby Doo.
       
      I couldn't quite bring myself to paint the great dane with Scooby-Doo's coloration, since apparently it does not occur in nature (As my husband said, "And of course authenticity of coloration is of utmost importance on fantasy figures.").
       
      This is probably my first attempt to glue props to bases. The candelabrum was a little too fragile, so I glued the snapped-off piece down flat instead.
       
      Here are the informal group shots from the WIP thread:

       

       
      The formal portraits were bigger than I thought, so I've put them in spoilers.
      HFN005 "Barney" (Fred)
       
       
       
      HFN003 "Felicity" (Daphne)
       
       
       
      HFN004 "Wolsey" (Shaggy)
       
       
       
      HFN002 "Louise" (Velma)

      People have occasionally talked of taking a toy van and customizing it as the Mystery Machine.
       
      Someone on Long Island did it in real life.

      These are older pictures. Few more modifications are made and I will proceed soon with pictures together with Scooby Doo and Friends.
