“Scooby Doobie Doooo!”


"Scooby-Doo, Where Are You?"

This 28mm scale model of Scooby Doo was sculpted by "Big Mr Tong" and can be downloaded for free as part of the Mystery Inc. set of STL (Standard Triangle Language) files from his "Patreon" subscription service. Based upon the leading canine character from "Hanna-Barbera Productions" 1969 cartoon television series, the miniature was produced using "Elegoo" Water Washable Resin on a Mars 3 Pro 3D Printer.


Created by Joe Ruby, Ken Spears, and Iwao Takamoto, the figure was undercoated in "Vallejo" Heavy Sienna, shaded using plenty of "Citadel" Agrax Earthshade, and heavily dry-brushed with (more) "Vallejo" Heavy Sienna. I then painted on some of the Great Dane's spots using a combination of "Citadel" Abaddon Black, "Vallejo" Heavy Charcoal" and "Citadel" Nuln Oil.

"Big Mr Tong" WIPs - A Sardaukar, a Cyberman and a Village Militia Officer

Scooby Doo's collar was carefully 'picked out' using some "Vallejo" Steel Blue and "Citadel" Drakenhof Nightshade, whilst I applied a little "Vallejo" Gold and "Citadel" Agrax Earthshade to the dog's tiny nameplate. Finally, I treated the model's nose and closed mouth to a lick of "Citadel" Abaddon Black, before highlighting the miniature's marvellously detailed face with some additional thin lines of "Vallejo" Heavy Sienna.


Sticking with "Big Mr Tong", I have started 3D printing, basing and priming many more of his figures in preparation of this year's Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge. Event number Thirteen is already less than a calendar month away from starting, and so as to overcome some of my frustrations at last year's awarding of bonus points (or rather lack of), I've decided to achieve my five-hundred-point target by simply knuckling down and pigmenting a hundred 28mm models during its three-month duration.

"Anvil Digital Forge" WIPs - A Corporate Security Force operative

In addition, I've picked up one of the Corporate Security Force operatives I received from "Anvil Digital Forge" as part of their Patreon programme, and started applying a predominantly blue, black and silver palette across the pilot piece. I was originally planning on adopting a colour scheme more in line with the Judges of Mega-City One (and still may well do so). But I thought I'd try something a bit more 'realistic' first.


To be honest. I'm not yet convinced about all the 'silver' metal, so do plan to 'pick out' the officer's belt/pouches in brown, and the two large cartridges at the back in red. I'll also be applying either some "Citadel" Reikland Fleshshade or Agrax Earthshade to the policeman's armour plates to help differentiate them from his chunky firearm. "Anvil Industries" are really churning out some great sculpts for this digital arm of their company, so I want to establish a fairly quick approach to these miniatures before I get swamped with all their awesome-looking STLs.

Nice work on "Scoob" nice figure too, though I was always more of a Captain Caveman person myself. 😉


Lots of nice prints coming out of your new toy I see, 100 models in in three moths is a high bar, but I can see that will only just keep you ahead of the printer at this rate! 🤣🤣


Cheers Roger.

Thanks Roger. I'd love to see someone doing a Laff-A-Lympics range of figures. Used to love that show as a kid. My fave Hanna-Barbera cartoon by far as it had all the characters in it. LOL!!!


One of the beauties of the 3D printer is I'm able to print what I like, so that does encourage me to keep pressing the start button, LOL!! The Anvil stuff though is superb - Police vs Chaos monstrosities, so I've been plugging away at a colour scheme which is easy to paint but still looks good. Think I've got it now, so hopefully I'll have some finished figures for next week to show off.

Scooby looks ready to run from any ghost he meets Simon, lots of printing going on I see, and the security force model has a real Jango Fett vibe about the colour scheme.

Cheers Dave. Tons of printing going on as I've been toying with a fair few Patreons this month. Not thought of the Anvil stuff having a Mandalorian vibe before. Might look at some of their colour schemes for inspiration...?

Great looking Scooby Doo! Great paint job, he looks great. Those Big Mr Tong previews all look great. Very nice sculpts. I like the metal armour on the corporate security guard, but it does make him look like a medieval knight though. Perhaps a black armour like current police/security forces might give an interesting look too?

Thanks Undercoat. Scooby Doo is a great sculpt imho, as are so many of Big Mr Tong's figures. They seem to print out very nicely too - something Mike Tongue (BMT) himself has commented upon.


There is black armour behind the metal plates already, hence my nervousness around keeping the plates themselves black too. But I might go back and block in a few plates to break up the silver..? Hopefully, the red, leather and brown wash will break it up even more...
