Fantastic as always Kosta! It is impressive what you did with that expressive figure. Very Happy I am also curious about what you can do with Papo and Mojo tigers. Very Happy

Thank you Roger,
I don`t have the Mojo tiger, actually I don`t have the Safari tigers also... but I have all tigers by Papo,
so I`ll repaint some of them...or maybe all of them.
And now I`m repainting the male Papo tiger...it`s looking good so far :)

No, is not only you.. I also think that the head is too big, or the body too small...and also very skinny..
but anyway..this model has some charm... some expression :)

Kosta, I am sure your Papo will look magnificent once it is still the best. Mojo's have a close quality but need your painting. Laughing

I can see that tiger in local shops and the big head/skiny body was exactly the reason why I decided not to get this figure. Though, I like a lot his expression as it happens with CollectA lioness. That's a different figure from other tigers but not close as good as Papo. Very Happy

Thank you again Kiki and Roger :)))
About Mojo tiger...I was thinking to buy one, but the only reason that I didn`t was, becouse I don`t like the position of the body.
It`s too boring for me. And I don`t like when some major brands, keep making the models of meny animals in this position.
I`m speaking about the legs...
It can happens sometimes, for the animals, to be with legs like that, especialy elephants...
But is more natural if the legs are opposite... Wink
For example the new 2015 Schleich  tiger...I think that it look`s nice, but this is only which I don`t like...the position of the legs.

Now is 04:00 h. in the morning...and I was repainting my Papo tiger till now.. pale
Allready 3 days I`m spending meny hours on this model...and still is not finished.
I`m allmost ready (And very proud of my self), but now I don`t have energie and patience anymore..
My eyes are half closed....so I have more repaint-work for tomorrow, maybe last day :)
So good night Mr. Tiger (without painted tail..)...see you tomorrow.. And good night to you guys, if somebody is still awake scratch Very Happy

Laughing That's impressive, I used to be on forum until very late hours but contrarily to what was expectable, now I am not so late on forum so often. Very Happy Your Papo is giving you a lot of work, I see but it deserves it. About Mojo pose, I agree it is boring, not only legs, I see you like best a more natural gait with opposite legs, but it is also boring because bodies are too straight. It was discussed also when the Iberian lynx was being sculpted, though, it was not originally supposed to be walking but just ready to hunt. Very Happy We can find several pictures online where felines have legs in that way that you don't like but I agree they look less natural. :)

I agree for Mojo lynx...and also we have a real photo in internet, which they used for that model :)

My Papo tiger was ready last night.... but today is a very dark day...and I cannot take good photos...I have to wait..
I think that, this is my best repaint till now....but, let`s wait for the the photos and you will tell me what you think Wink
