PostSubject: Antelopes...   Sat Jan 29, 2011 4:41 pm

I wanted to share all of the figures I have, many are unusual species that I have wanted as a figure but never thought it would happen so I have Ana to make them for me. I used to have all of the Schleich/Papo/Safari Ltd figures, along with some other brands like TreeHouse kids, but in the end I have traded or sold all of them off with the exception of the new Kudus that are available because I collect for the diorama and I would never have used these figures for the display.

I have taken a couple of photos, the first with the larger species like eland, nilgai, and kudu and in the second are the smaller ones like the lechwe and gerenuk. I know the topi is about the size of a kudu but he gets the honor of being the big fish in the little pond.

Congratulation Phil Very Happy .

When I am done with him I will post a photo, I almost didn't put it in this post, but there he is.

To make him I moved the neck to a different pose, I still am having trouble matching the color of the new part to the rest of the figure, I am close but not close enough. What I think will happen is I will just repaint the whole figure, it will look better then the mix of colors and be close enough to the original that he will fit in with the herd quite well.

I am not sure I like the lesser kudu, first it is the same size as the greater kudu from Schleich, second the face looks a like he is smiling and sort of cartoonish. I am not sure if that is just the way mine was painted or if they all look that way.
