I think it tries to steal food from the raccoon, but the Papo raccoon always looks as if it has had plenty to eat!

I found this photo I took last summer:

Here are the Safari Ltd. North American Wildlife Toob figures:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

They are all charismatic miniatures of larger models. Now, it is true that browns prevail in most of these mammals, but not these browns. So, some of them have received more natural pelage, with more to follow in the future. For now here is the wapiti:

He is on the grayish side, sort of an old winter coat.  Smile  Since this repaint, I found the larger version in this pose, so I can try a variation sometime. (The mountain goat shows painted hooves, but may get additional attention. The pronghorn will get his turn on here, too.)

I really like your paintwork, they are beautifully done and for something so small, it's impressive! The grey squirrel is wonderful in particular.

Here is the bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis) from the tube. You can see its original paint scheme in the previous group photo. Like the wapiti, this animal's coloration is more complex than one might think at first glance. I like their sheep-eyes and white snout.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Here it is with a solid base color applied.

There is also a nearly identical (but not quite) sculpt in the Desert Toob. I'm trying to decide, should I paint it as a companion for this figure or with colors more suited to a desert bighorn? I suppose they would look fine together even if they had different coats.

Looks really nice and great pictures. Very Happy I didn't know bighorns from these toobs were different. Very Happy
I'd suggest a desert bighorn, I find it an excelent idea. Very Happy

Wow great job with the elk and the ram. Fantastic figures hidden under crappy paint jobs and you made them looks like a million bucks!

Thank you, everyone. Very Happy  I realized I had both bighorn figures on hand, so let's do a little comparison, shall we?

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

There are two main differences I notice. First, the supposed desert bighorn has a slimmer body and legs. Second, its horns are curled differently, more outwards and less backwards. I do not know if this is an intentional reference to a different bighorn (thinner coat?) or just updated sculpting/tooling, nor do I know which Toob came first.

Thanks, everyone. Smile   NandO, I think a needle or toothpick can be easier than a brush for the center of the eye on such a small model.

Next are the repainted pronghorns that went with my figurines from the prairie scene. If you look at the Safari toob group picture you'll notice the pronghorn is one of the worst offenders, color-wise.

This one is from a K&M International wildlife tube. I've always liked it but it also looks better with painting.

Finally, here are more pictures of my repainted New Ray pronghorn. The sculpture is excellent with thin legs and accurate features that made it rewarding to paint. I had a delightful surprise: my inexpensive raw umber paint has a (usually annoying) graininess to it, and I realized that it was a great match for the texture of the animal's actual horns! When I was little, the zoo had a single male pronghorn- he would sometimes approach us at the fence and we would feed him leaves. I was quite impressed to be so close to such an animal with its huge dark eyes, so it remains special to me.

The set of three:

Thanks Christophe, LeeAnn, Simone, and Jonas!

Christophe: It's surely easier planning repaints than finding the time. I think this one is worth it, though. I still have catching up to do posting finished projects...


Oh! I meant to include this with those photos. I hate to waste paint if I mix too much, so I made this little sketch with the leftover colors from one of the pronghorns:

Thanks for the comments.

Rogério- Yes, it was quite special for me. Though I hope to see them in the wild some day, being close enough to touch is a different experience.

Jonas- This was a bonus because when you're as slow as me, everything usually dries on the palette. silent Laughing

(The colors are a little funny- I kept waiting for better lighting but when I finally made the pictures the camera was accidentally set for fluorescent light- I thought I could correct it on the computer, but...)

I think they are both great figures, yet they seem so different! The New Ray is quite gracile while the Mojo is stockier. I think you could find pictures of individuals reminiscent of either model. The Mojo buck's horns have a more natural shape/curvature.

Thank you very much for the pictures, Andy! cheers The Mojo one looks very odd, when I compare it with the New Ray pronghorn, but I thought the same about New Ray's when I've seen it for the first time. Here you can see what a difference the paintjob can make! Very Happy

Another long-term Safari toob project: the backyard birds:

I was excited when these were released, as I'm more familiar with these species than most of the animals in my collection. The original paint on these is very simple, but the brightest red, yellow, and blue colors are appealing so I may try to retain some of that as base colors.

Here's the finished pileated woodpecker:

Like the original, it represents a male with a full red crest and cheek stripes. I completely painted over the matte black of the figure and added a subtle brownish sheen to the wing feathers. It isn't varnished in these pictures, but I plan to put a bit of gloss on the eyes that should add more life to them.
