Fairchild C-119 Flying Boxcar.

Fairchild C-119 Flying Boxcar Wide - 1 by Fred Maillardet, on Flickr

When the Scooby Gang took Mystery Inc. worldwide they leased a Fairchild Flying Boxcar from zenrat industries to transport the Mystery Machine between cases.
Other than it's eye-catching paint job the C-119 received additional pantry capacity, refrigerators and an APU to run them.  Being a zi aircraft (and before that being operated by Air America) it already had hidden storage compartments in which Shaggy could stash his herbal smoking requisites.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

That's BRILLIANT Fred, and fits the backstory a treat.  :thumbsup:

I love the bit about the previously fitted 'hidden storage compartments'....  ;)
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Regards

Are you suggesting that Shaggy partakes of weed, Fred?

Are you suggesting that Air America smuggled drugs?

I'm shocked!  Absolutely shocked!  How could you reveal this information?  It is TOP SECRET!   :banghead:

Glad you all like this.
Thank you.
There is a lot more I could do with this kit.  But it's a big bugger to store when it's done.
