The continuing astonishing adventures of Digby Derbyshire, agent of the Diogenes Club!

1933, Somewhere in the Alps…..




Having stopped the wolfman experiment at the alpine laboratory, all that remained to completely foil Doctor Erzfeind’s diabolical plan was to steal the blueprints to his top secret ‘Stacheln’ mini-planes. With the castle ablaze, we grabbed the case of blueprints and nipped off while everyone was distracted. We had to get word back to Winthrop in London about this sinister rearmament!



To make good our exit from a nest of Fritz, we made off through the trees to where we had parked my car, a ’31 Delahaye Hornet with hand-tuned thrusters. Dicky gunned the engine down hill so we could make for the border, while I grabbed a rifle and kept an eye out for the blighters I knew would be pursuing us. I didn’t have to wait for long.





I heard the growl of the engines of a pair of ‘Rennen der Nacktschnecke’. These tracked sidecars were closing fast and the forward mounted machine guns started stammering their fire as soon as they were in range. The drivers weaved back and forth to spray the bullets across the road like a net of lead.





Ignoring the whine of bullets, I calmly sighted along the rifle at the weakest part of these contraptions – the driver. As usual my luck held, I winged one of them and losing control he veered into the other with a satisfying smash.



Dicky kept his foot down, but we weren’t alone for long. The guards had obviously telephoned ahead and as we rounded a corner we were nearly crushed by a ‘Donner-Eber’ charging out onto the road. The scout car was heavily armed and the gunner immediately brought his cannons to bear on us.



I told Dicky to stay close to the edges of the road as the guns pounded around us. I grabbed the last of Dicky’s dynamite, lit the fuse and lofted it high in the air.



All that cricket on the village green had given me a pretty good bowling arm and my aim was true. It came down slap between the driver and his gunner and stopped the car dead with a lovely bang and crash.



Dicky eased the throttle back and we both relaxed, as we figured we were scot-free, Not for long unfortunately. The ominous whine of air engines heralded further pursuers



Dr. Erzfiend had sent a pair of his experimental fighters after us. The Stacheln came low over the trees, rotors whining and nose cannons spitting fire!



I grabbed my trusty Thompson and prepared to fight them off......



Will Digby and Dicky escape the fighter planes? Will they save their skins and get word to London of the sinister plans? Tune in next time to ‘The continuing astonishing adventures of Digby Derbyshire, agent of the Diogenes Club!’

4th Wall/ notes

Okay, amongst the many things I am a fan of is James Bond, and the films have something of a formula for a car chase/ ski chase/ boat chase, which I tried to pay homage to here, along with pulp adventures and serials like Flash Gordon. I simply ran out of time to provide the special effects and extra scenery I wanted to put in. A combination of a bout of sickness and family stuff left me short on hours, which is why the cliffhanger ending and a lack of explosions.

Apologies to any German speaking FOLs for maiming your language to come up with names for the vehicles. I hope the online translator hasn’t mangled up things too badly.

The vehicles are not based on any existing design, they are purely from my imagination (and lets face it, completely impractical or impossible). It’s not conceit that made me call Digby’s car a Delahaye by the way – they were a genuine car manufacturer of that period and if I won the lottery I would treat myself to a ’39 roadster in red and white.

Thanks for looking

great scenes!!! awesome vehicles! question; the jacket is a great part but, is this a female torsio? why did nt you do a girl then? i m curious about this detail, i m especially fond of the armored atv, and yellow futuristic car, but, the tracked bikes were inspiring a lot too! the air attack is also very well done, and original, nice background story, excellent work!

GO!! Racing Slug! He, he, he. This is just epic. BTW, LEGO should totally bring back the helmets on the crew of the Thunder Boar. I believe their from the Stingrays range?

"Why is it customary with a military vehicle MOC that has suspension to show it rolling over somebody?" Well, grasshopper, it all comes down to s.e.x appeal. One could easily show off an articulated suspension by trolling over a rock, or a tree, or any number of inanimate objects. But, the true test of a war machine's sauceyness is this: Can it squish a human. If the answer is yes, then, "Hello, baby - why don't you come to the back and stay a while." If no, then...back to the drawing board.

Stuart Delahay, I choose YOU!!!! Good luck in the next round my friend. I refuse to say "may the best man/MOC win" because I don't think one build is a true reflection of anyone. We all have our off days/weeks. And I'm hoping your off day is due this round. :P

Very nice, I love the colorschemes of the vehicles, the red flying machines are my favourite, I would have voted for you if I was a judge, sure your opponent made a great entry as well, the transforming car was remarkable and the small story going with it however I only look at the builds and I find yours more perfectionized

Been going back over the competitor's MOCs for fun now that my judging is out of the way. I didn't mention last time what a great job you did on all of the vehicles. The planes are still my fav, but all of them are great designs and really well executed. Glad to hear there may be a series coming out of this!

O.M.G! This is a master piece collection dude, I love this stuff. Super fun builds, and superbly constructed. This is going to be almost impossible to beat! You'd have put me away with this one I'm sure...

Quoting Dennis Price Q: Why is it customary with a military vehicle MOC that has suspension to show it rolling over somebody? A: Because it's funny. The Hornet alone would score you high marks, but the scout car, the sidecars, and those lovely mini-planes are the icing on the cake. You get my vote, but only if you SWEAR ON YOUR HONOR to continue this series! I simply love it! James Bond has always been a fave, and I love adventure stories too. Plus, there's so many opportunities for humor with this character -- you might say I'm jealous I didn't come up with this, but I'm not. I'd rather see what you do!
Thank you Dennis, high praise from someone whose writing I enjoy so much. I do so swear that I shall continue the astonishing adventures of Digby Derbyshire, agent of the Diogenes Club! And Darksun the Starbarian, and Morton Zuckerman - Detective Chef, along with Cletus and Roscoe the hillbilly inventors, and the Awesome Foursome, and bionic shark, and....

Wow, this is another close one! Alright, Delahay...Some great work on the vehicles. I particularly love the mini-planes. Your dialog and presentation were solid as well. I'm going to have to go with your opponent, though, for his originality. While you guys are neck and neck in this competition, I feel like Lucas' mechs and his transforming car puts him over the top. Some great work here, though, and a very close call.
  October 18, 2010
Nice one! I love all of the vehicles you used, they all have that pulp-era feel. I'd have to say my favorite is the Delahaye Hornet. Who doesn't love a flying car? Anyways, best of luck vs. the other Stu!

Excellent job Stu! Love the vehicles that you came up with! Not sure if it fits into the category as much as Stu's does. That's where I'm really thankful I'm not a judge myself! I love your story, and you definitely did the James Bond formula proud! Now get some sleep, and buy a decent fridge for that beer! :P

It's a really nice build, Stuart. The story is in the journal-entry style, which works very well with the category (and Heath did it too, so you're in good company). What really stood out to me was the fighters; they are very slick and stand out with the bold use of red. Excellent work, good luck.

It's the battle of the Stuarts! But one must win, and I know it will be you. You seem to do well and build imaginatively in any category.
