PostSubject: My model arrived today!!!   Wed Aug 13, 2014 9:51 am

I've ordered a few figures, one from ebay through my dad  Cool  and several from trademe. I will show you them as they arrive Very Happy 



I've wanted this one for ages bounce bounce bounce I think its a pretty cool figure. Somehow the legs seem to be slightly bent inwards with the hooves turned up so that it is slightly off balance and falls over more easily??? You can kind of see it with one of the hooves in the picture.

I commented here before but it appears it didn't go through.

Congrats on the okapi! You can straighten the legs by heating them with a hairdryer and bending them back into place. You can also put cardboard between the legs and wrap rubber bands around. Very Happy

And congrats again on the falabella!

Emma, I am glad you're still around. Very Happy It would be great to see your photos again posted in this topic. When we live in a community, we always give more importance to one or two bad comments and we almost forget all other people with good comments and supporting us. I think we live much better when we give more importance to good things and less importance to bad things, don't you agree?
If you prevent delicate subjects and keep posting your collection and enjoying with us, you'll understand why there are so many members on this forum for almost as long as it exists. flower
Just enjoy here and you see your Mom will support your stay here. Very Happy

It has been a VERY busy day. I went into the store intending to get JUST ONE gorilla, or maybe two? confused Spent three minutes standing in front of the stand before buying FIVE!!!!!

You're spot on Roger, collectors need to be strong Laughing  Cool 
Mum and baby...




The baby...



Here is the mandrill mother and baby







And here is the male...








I love the fruit bat, but dad says that their spreading disease or something, so this is a naughty fruit bat...

such a sweet face










I particularly like the way that his back is textured

It is great to see your pictures again and that your collection is growing quickly. Susanne's tutorials are excelent and work as we can see. Very Happy
You've got some nice Schleich, I enjoy specially the fruit bat, I also bought it, the pose is not flat as in many bats and the translucent material gives it a special touch. Very Happy
These figures with babies are always cute, congratulations! flower

Well I was so dissapointed when my horse arrived today Sad He had a broken ear Surprised I don't know why, they never said anything about this on the auction!!! How could it have happened in the post if it was wrapped up so well confused 
I have tried to glue it and it is not noticable in the photo's but it still bothers me. This is my first bad experiance with a trader for a schleich figure.
