Like that Ron, it brings back fun memories.

I wanted just three things to happen when I was young.....

I wanted these guys to catch that bleeping pigeon, I wanted Wile E Coyote to catch that bleeping roadrunner, and most of all I wanted Sylvester to eat that bleeping tweety pie.....I can’t be the only one,....

Hi Ron,

Nice build, and still dry!! Good memories of old tv shows.

Brilliant Ron!

I guess so many of us are 'of an age' to remember those goofball TV series.

I remember the reruns of reruns of reruns and I loved it, I too wanted the above to be caught.

Really nice idea, totally read cyber bullies instead of buddies. :P

It came out well, nice idea of steam punk and craziness, bit like the Steam Punk rally board game,

Oh, go on then......obviously for research only....Richard Milhous Dastardly and the gang....


There were only 17 Wacky races episodes and 17 Dastardly and Muttley in their flying machine episodes in the original series. Made quite an impression for a Terry Thomas alike didn’t he.....

Superbly crafted Nuttiness Matey teeth 2, gave me a good giggle, then after laughing i realised the sheer quality of your work yet again, a top modeller to say the least. Thoroughly agree on the Three Cartoon captures, particularly that flippin Tweety wotsit fist.

Cheers, MikeC.

Thanks to one and all for all your excellent posts.

The compliments are great, but nowhere near as satisfying as reading that it's made you good people smile, and brought back great memories of a simpler, more easy going time.

Yup that dry snicker from Mutley after he gets his medals and that "gimme gimme gimme..." or Dastardly going "Mutley do something..." brings back memories.teeth 2

Ron, that's a really nice crazy build...with that large net I'm sure the pidgeon will have some crafty flying escape to do.
