We bought a batch of Lineol animals, including a Giraffe, Tiger and Red Deer Hind, which had no heads. (They had ben cut off cleanly ... we wonder, what DID the owner do with them?)

Lesley has made the Red Deer Hind into a mate for our old Schleich Kudu Bull -

Thank you, everyone! I like to turn badly damaged animals into creatures that Schleich, Lineol, etc., never made. I can add little bits, cast missing pieces in plaster, and paint them ... but there are people on this forum who can model beautiful animals from scratch!

I salute them!! I do not have that sort of courage!!!

(For the she-Kudu, I plaster-cast the face from a complete Red Deer Hind, and so only had to model the ears and the fringes, then paint.)

Yes, Rio has seen the picture of the Giraffe with his new head. I made him reach up to feed from a high branch, but I have not quite managed to hide the join across his neck. Here he is -

Susanne, yes, I think maybe someone used the heads to make hunting trophies for a dolls' house.....
