Finished the first of the Red Deer pair (well not painted yet). I'm getting slower and fussier these days! Hope you like it Smile The final image shows comparison with Schleich's Red deer for size.

Surely a Sambar deer couldn't make a cake topper as glamourous as this one. Though, I hope it is a start to Southlands introduce the Southern deer species when expanding their range.
The figure is sumptuous and gives a good tribute to these impressive stags. Very Happy

Thankyou MiniNature, Christophe, Florian, Ana, David, Roger & Andreas. Your comments and feedback are much appreciated.

Some are asking about Southlands - yes I have been quiet as there are things going on in the background. I'm trying to work through some matters with the factory regarding consistency of the PVC as I've found it to be a little soft for my liking (particularly with the legs of the Big Red Kangaroo) and also one or two unnannounced figures. Anyway I hope everyone is happy to be patient as these things all take time Smile

I'm definitely thinking copies would be a good idea. First I need to make the doe and see how they look together. I think copies would make a nice gift for some family members as a memento of the wedding. Also I'm interested to know if others beside Anna would also be interested in resin copies?

Yes, I have some problems with the legs of the Big Red Kangaroo model ..so it is very good, that you are working for better PVC , for models like this :)

About the Red Deer copies, is there any chance for plastic copies ?... scratch Very Happy

I would love to say yes but it's unlikely. To make plastic copies is ridiculously expensive for the steel mould and would need to produce at least 1,000 copies Very Happy . We can't rule anything out completely though! If I had 1,000 people to buy them then no problems. Resin seems the most practical option.

Thank you for the reply Jason :)
Yes, I understand that ... actually I was almost sure what the answer will be :)
At the same time, I think this Red Deer is the best model , better than these from major brands
and with good market, there will be far more from 1000 people around the world buying it :)
On the other hand, I completely understand, that ``good market`` is a very hard thing ...

Ohmygoodness, what a stunning stag!
It is surely the best out there, no doubt!

Resin copy? Hmm, that sounds very interesting!
But I can not paint XD
Plastic would be perfect! Although finding 1000 people? >.<

I am also a candidat for plastic! Laughing Unfortunately I can't afford a resin piece as it is probably the main problem to most of us. We are already 3for pvc, , it is only missing 997! Laughing

Thanks very much Karin and Miguel for your kind compliments. I can't wait to have the pair together all painted up. It think the doe should be a little easier and she will have eyes closed which is something different I hope. Lets see how it all goes for copies - I wish for plastic also!

Oh... I missed this thread.

Congrats to your kid, Jason.

Magnificent red deer. Very detailed and accurate. Much much better than "cute" Schleich's! Even the best red deer so far. Great job, Jason!
Plastic copies, please...?

Sincerely I can't say i would be interested by a Resin copy, not because I don't like resin models of course. There are already on my wish list so many resin models I promised to buy and still haven't do, it is a shame. Embarassed I can't tell I would be able to buy this one before... Well I sadly can't tell.
nevertheless we only have to find 996 buyers for a plastic version Laughing

This is the best red deer model I can think of and I can't wait to watch the doe, cruel you Wink

Great looking stag - you plan on making copies?

Only thing I would say is that the eye position and nose bridge may need a little enhancement/shaping when viewing the figure head on (directly in front of the face).

At this stage resin copies are the most likely option. The light/shadow effect from a side lit subject coupled with the distorted effect of an iphone close up changes the view you get with the naked eye quite dramatically, however I will be doing some minor refinements to a few areas of the model before committing the final version to copy. Thanks for your honest feedback, I'll be sure to review the face during this process. Smile
