Tracer Bullet's Office
About this creation
The Dame's scream hit an octave usually reserved for calling dogs, but it meant I had a case, and the sound of greenbacks slapping across my palm is music to my ears any day. After all, I'm not an opera critic. I'm a private eye.
I keep two magnums in my desk. One's a gun and I keep it loaded. The others a bottle and it keeps me loaded. I'm Tracer Bullet. I'm a professional snoop. It's a tough job, but then, I'm a tough guy. Some people don't like an audience when they work. Enough of them have told me so with blunt instruments that I'm a phrenologists dream come true.

-Calvin and Hobbes



Here is my first attempt at a calvin and hobbes themed moc and hopefully not my last. It is a vignette of Tracer Bullet's office. The majority of it is accurate because I based it off the comics. It isn't fully accurate because Bill Waterson draws Tracer Bullet's his office a bit different each time. The hardest part was building the shades for the windows and I am still not satisfied with the result. I think I will remake the different variations of his office in the future but for now this is it. The first few pictures are black and white like the comic, but there are color versions later.























here is a close up of the desk. on it is my custom lamp and old fashioned phone design.














Please leave a comment/criticism.

thanks for viewing,
Ben

Quoting Mr. Xenomurphy I haven't been able to write a lot of comments lately apart from the ones for the MOC Olympics, but this vig really deserves one (like many others, but time is an issue at the moment). I'd like that even if I didn't knew "Calvin & Hobbes". You really pay attention to details, like the phone or the burbon bottle, which is - in my opinion - the best way to create outstanding MOCs.
Thanks for taking your time to comment on this, It really means a lot to me to receive such a nice comment from such a great builder :)

Since stalking Mr. Xeno is what brought me here, I will echo his sentiments. The bourbon bottle is quite ingenious.~H

This is nice! It reminds me of a short series I built under a pseudonym. Perhaps it's time to repost it. I really love the mood you've captured here. Well done.

Oooh! This is great! Really nice details, particularly the blinds, file cabinet, and the wall socket. The 40's telephone is really good too, but it might be just a little bit big for the minifig scale. (Unavoidable I'm sure, they can only make the parts so small...)

This is very nice. Tracer was my favorite of Calvin's alter-egos, dang I can't remember any of his good quotes. Anyways I love how you made the filing cabinet, that's very well done, and the near empty bottle of gin is wicked. May have to borrow that idea in the future! MOC on, mate.

Quoting Ru Corder Wow, great job Ben! Only thing is maybe have some diologue from the comic in there somewhere, just to give those unfortunite souls who have not read it a feel for what's going on.
I'll add in some dialogue soon. Thanks for the feedback!
