A Disney Wreck It Ralph truck.
I don't know what I will use it for.
But it's a pretty cool vehicle.
Maybe a fire truck with a foam dispenser. 
Maybe an electro magnet for a scrapyard.
Perhaps some science fiction vehicle for special purposes.
Use the boom to decontaminate the landed space ship.
Pretty nice,whatever it is.

I think the Matchbox DIVCO milk truck is a very interesting and versatile vehicle.
I stripped off the paint, primered it flat gray and now I am working on repainting it.
I already painted the interior a medium green and so I am masking it off to paint the exterior.
They will be part of my US Army 1938 project.
Army trucks, mostly as communication vans.

 Radios in the 1930s were big and so a big van is perfect for carrying one.

Money Mobile

The vehicle has a lot of detail, but screams out for some detail painting.
Good roof detail.
Bottom is red!
Good size vehicle too.
Here with a 1/72nd scale figure.

Armored Transport

This is kinda of a cute vehicle.
An money armored car transport vehicle.
From the Mattel credit union.
I think that is a hysterical inside joke, since Matchbox is made by Mattel.
It's a good armored car, I think.

Mr. Freeze Vehicle Coming

In the Batman 66 comic book there is a Mr. Freeze story where Mr. Freeze uses this vehicle.
So I got a couple extras so I could make one into a Mr. Freeze vehicle.
So this one will likely get paint stripped and repainted for the Mr. Freeze version.

 The yellow and turquoise versions with a chef.

Ice Cream Truck

Matchbox ice cream truck as a taffy truck.
I have this in yellow as a ice creamtruck.
Identical apart from a raised rear on the yellow.
Front end.
Nice truck.

Werewolves in the Wehrmacht

I really liked how these turned out.
My plan now is to make a platoon of them.
Bazooka operator.
The radio operator.
The whole squad.
The human and canine officers.

Werewolf Germans

The Esci WWII Infantry is a great set.
I have about 5,000 of them in green and gray plastic.
They are my primary WWII German set.  I put this figure on a base as it makes it easier for him to stand up, particularly on carpet or other uneven surfaces.
While the wolf head seem a little big their necks are the same size almost the same size as the human neck.
My plan was to make just a few of them, perhaps just a squad of them.
I put the mortar guy on a base too, also to make the stand up better. The big wolf head does not seem to have changed the ability of the figures to stand up.  I added the bases to figures that did not stand up well in the originals.
