PostSubject: Repainting Takara Tomy Tiger and Cheetah   Fri Nov 08, 2013 12:48 pm

Just a few days ago I had the fortunate chance to find out one of my local mall bookstores was carrying Takara Tomy animals. They were stashed among other Tomica car boxes, all animals in the series but I got only the cheetah and the tiger due to a tight wallet Embarassed 

One of the things I love about the figures is that they have articulation. But some of the animals have articulations at parts of the body where it does not look natural, luckily the cheetah and tiger have articulations at the mouth. The paintwork is poor, but a decent sculpt of the animals made me give them a repaint. I also sealed off the articulation joints where it was visible with epoxy.

Thanks all, Smile For the hinges, I use just a small amount of epoxy, to stuff into the holes, then move the jaw to make sure the epoxy doesn't fall off when it moves.

Nightlioness, here is front facing pics of the cats. They are small, that can fit into the palm, is why the face painting very rough, I'm not used to have steady hands for painting small details. Embarassed Embarassed

Susanne, now I learnt something new, I didn't know cats open their mouths when they smell food, must be the tuna sandwich I had earlier What a Face Shocked scratch
I think he's really hungry now....Laughing
