H.R. Pufnstuf Living Island Boats
These are little replicas of the boat featured in the intro to H.R. Pufnstuf. As a kid I was so into this show, and I wanted to make something fun and colorful as a surprise model for Wonderfest, an annual model convention I attend in Kentucky. In the show, Jimmy is lured to the colorful boat and sets out to sea, and Witchy Poo springs her trap, waving her wand and making the boat transform into the “scary” version. So on the first day of the show, I would display the colorful Living Island boat, and then randomly swap it out for the “scary” one, hoping that visitors might see the “transformation” occur. These were SUPER fun to make, from the base that looks water-like to the top of the masts.
