From the Peanuts gang, Snoopy and his doghouse, with Woodstock and Patty. From the Christmas Pageant set where Snoopy is a sheep, and Woodstock is "baby Jesus".

Snoopy is a simple repaint with a little S tail added. I laid on the acrylic paint thick to resemble fur. He has a coat hanger rod in his foot through the roof and a block underneath.

Woodstock got new wings and feet from scrap, then a clear plastic wire to hold him aloft.

The doghouse roof came from some pre-cut wooden model. The walls are tongue depressors from the craft store cut with a small X-Acto miter box (90 or 45 degrees). The doghouse is usually all orange in old Sunday strips, but I added white for variety. The name over the door is styled after one comic that showed it.

Patty (the original, not Peppermint Patty) was a Lucy keychain in a winter coat and beret. I took her apart, ground the coat round, and jammed down a water bottle neck for the skirt. I also cut the coat arms down to short sleeves. Then I painted her green and drew on Xs with a Sharpy: it blurred slightly when Dullcoted, but fits. The hula hoop is a steel ring drilled and wired into her hand. Her hair is layers of Tyvek paper curves, as are her bows. I drew her eyes back on brown rather than black for a lighter look, and her smile not as wide.

I've always had a soft spot for the older Peanuts characters who fell by the wayside, so plan to model Violet and Shermy and PigPen to round out the cast.

This is seriously amazing to see. I love the Peanuts and you've captured them beautifully. I'm so glad you didn't opt to do some stupid "future" version of them where they're grown up and Charlie Brown is strung out on drugs that seem to be all the rage now. This is the kind of custom that just makes me really happy. A++++
