What a wonderful, perfectly painted outstanding figurine! How awesome you're one of those lucky ones who've won in the lottery winning these gorgeous modles from Bulgaria!
This one is just so good there's nothing you can say but I love your work, Kosta!
Roger, was it you who said "I can't photograph" and "my photos are horrible"... No it must have been somebody else...
Congrats friend Very Happy Stunning outdoor photo as well!!

WOW, oh, WOW affraid
Another magnificent model from Kosta  cheers
It is stunning ! Awesome ! Gorgeous ! Perfect !  bounce  Applause
I almost said . Of course  Laughing

And not only is this model a very special Kosta-repaint, it is also a very special model which went to a very special person drunken

For those who do not know the story behind the model, I'll try to be brief, even if it is difficult. Embarassed

The Iberian Lynx is THE most endangered cat at all.
In spite of an enormous effort to save it, the population barely hangs on with the tip of the claws, - in 2005, the population was down to app 100 .
Thus, this may well be the first wild cat to become extinct since the last Smilodon died 10.000 years ago Sad

But there is still a small hope.
The experts are working hard to save it, but the public must also be aware !
A few people are not only aware, - some DO something, - people like Roger cheers
When the first Mojo models appeared in 2011, Roger contacted James Conolly, asking him to make an Iberian lynx !!!
And James agreed Very Happy

A small STS-team was created, and the result is the model we know  Wink
But James took it even further, using two pages in the 2012-catalogue, and giving a sum of money to the ICNB for each model sold :

And now Kosta has made this wonderful, beautyful re-paint  cheers

For Roger  cheers  Applause

I am SO happy, - now there is one more Iberian lynx in Portugal, - and she lives in Roger's house  Very Happy  Very Happy  Very Happy  Very Happy  Very Happy

Thanks to Everyone without any exception, I won't quote everyone but check below.
@Jonas, thanks for your very kind words, I am glad you enjoy (my) pictures taken outdoors. Yes, i hate to photograph and I love to see all your pictures. Very Happy
@Kosta, Oh, all work was yours, my guidance was only to help you identifying lynx species and a little coat suggestion. Very Happy Again, incredible all the detail you can put in such a small figure. Of course you can use any of my pictures, that is actually a honour for me. cheers p.s. I don't think that girls on forum will allow you to change your avatar! Laughing
@Susanne, excelent description and addition to this topic. cheers I think it is really fair to give all praises to Kosta once work is magnificent but we can never forget how that figure was born and how generous was from James giving the chance of introducing a figure of this animal in Mojo's range and all his effort to give a little but appreciated help to the Iberian lynx conservation program. cheers
The STS team that reviewed the figure deserves also that mention once the painting also has all this realistic effect because the mould has quality. It is useless to repaint a platypus like an Iberian lynx that it won't ever look good. Very Happy It is important to recall that you belong to that team. Well, I deserved the release and that kosta's masterpiece and that is really a big joy for me. Very Happy
Again Kosta, it is great that you've found Philipp's repaint. Just like you he is a great artist and a big enthusiast of wild cats. cat I remember discussing some details with him and his choice was the called Doñana pattern. That last picture was exactly the picture that originally served to start Mojo's project. Very Happy
I don't have the Mojo's repaint from PEGE, but he also send as a gift a AAA Eurasian lynx customized as an Iberian lynx and brilliantly repainted too. Of course the mould is less realistic, a chubby one but the result is just amasing. Very Happy
The other picture shows one of the versions of mass produced painting compared with yours. The difference is so dramatic that the sculpt doesn't look as nice although it is the same. Laughing Though, it is completely impossible to mass produce such a complex pattern. Very Happy

Thank you Karin and Christophe :)
Roger, all I can say is : cheers cheers cheers

On your nice photos, I see some pieces left on the lynx, from the styrofoam (white one) :)
You can take them out..don`t worry about the paint.. it`s fixed Wink) ..that`s why maby it`s sticky a bit. Wink

Really fantastic! Wonderful repaint Kosta! I'm very impressed. It's a great sculpt, but the off-the-line paintwork doesn't do it justice. This repaint absolutely does. Congratulations Roger! You have some wonderful Lynxes. The repainted AAA by PeGe and the Mojo by Kosta are fabulous!
