Corey’s Mystery Machine

Posted By on August 21, 2010

Corey loves movies and movie-themed projects. His last project was a mostly scratch-built diorama of a scene from the movie Milk. Taking a bit of a break, Corey chose a Polar Lights kit of the Mystery Machine van from the old animated series Scooby Doo.

The figure painting was perhaps the hardest part of the project.

It's alive!

The kit comes with stickers (!) for the decoration of the van sides. My past experience with this kit is that the stickers do not lay down well on the compound curves of the van body so we did some trial and error learning to make our own decals for the sides.

The kit is missing the bumpers but is almost done.

The figures came out really well.
