I found these pictures from a 2012 custom- a really simple one. I had decided that the little Schleich badger cubs couldn't play properly attached to their base, so I cut them off and repainted their paws. I like them much better like this.

Thanks ladies and gentleman.Smile   It is an easy fix I would recommend for anyone. I like to see the animals roaming free, but other little based figures might have more trouble doing so. If anyone owns the CollectA baby capybaras and feels brave I would be curious to know the results. cyclops

The toob birds robin is done and finally had its pictures taken so that should be coming soon. The cardinal is mostly done; I just need to finish up where I left off some time ago. I'm impatient for the rest so hopefully I'll do more soon... probably blue jay next.

I also like better these badgers free like that. I think Schleich, with the new wild life sets, found a good way to give a new life to small sized figures that otherwise needed to be attached to something to be sold in their standard range. I can't recall if anyone made the same work with the pygmy hedgehog, I don't even know if it is possible at all. scratch :)

I agree about the sets, Roger. Only I don't know if this packaging will make them more of a "special item" affecting what locations stock them, price point, etc. As a child I always liked small figures and accessories.Smile  I've never seen the pygmy hedgehog in person but I bet it has potential.

Okay, here is the American Robin:

When we post pictures of small models, it really zooms in on the details, so for a change I tried to make these next two approximately life-size (though this may vary with different screens):

Again, like the original model, this painting represents a male, with overall bolder plumage and a darker head. Also note- the white tips on the tail should not be so visible unless the tail is fanned out more, so I will be adjusting this. I'm happy to have this model of one of the most seen and heard wild animals for many of us North Americans. Smile

Thanks Laura, Susanne, and Anna.

Susanne, yes, it's the Toob Robin. The group photo is on the previous page- I'm using that as the "before" picture for all the models.

Images are now restored for this topic. Sleep

Here are some quick touch-ups on the Safari octopus. The original eyes were black. I used yellow and white, with black for the horizontal pupil shape. I also added darker striping around the eyes, darker mottling on the body (but not the flexible tentacles), and white inside the siphon and a little bit in the mantle cavity.

Unfortunately the varnish has a slight tack to it that can collect lint. I don't know whether or not this is from applying it to a soft plastic model... I'll try to correct it sometime.
