PostSubject: My animal models collection   Sat Apr 30, 2011 3:39 pm

I've decided to show my (small as for now) collection on forum. I'm trying to post them regularly on my blog as well Wink
I'm going to repaint all (or at least vast majority) of my models in the future, to give them as realistic look as possible :)

Here we go:

unknown producer, 8 'Made in China' horses

Thank you both, Harriet and Andreas :)
Next models I'm going to buy will be some wildlife animals (or maybe some farm animals too, I haven't decided yet), so there will be more variety in the future Very Happy

Hi Mangalarga,

Great start for a collection, everyone starts with very few individuals and later you will see how fast your collection will grow.

Thanks Magdalena to show us your collection! You have much more horses than me! :)
I agree with Susanne! You should not repaint the Schleich horses, soon or later you will have doubleds or scratched and those you can repaint without lost the charm of the original collectible! :)

Thanks :)

Susanne, Roger, I have to disappiont you - I'm going to repaint those too, but I won't change their colours drastically. I just can't stand the flaws in the original finish, I'm a perfectionist in this matter Cool
Plus, Percheron mare looks as if she was graying very dark chestnut (so called black chestnut) with flaxen mane. And Percherons can't be chestnut, only black and black-based gray.
About scratches - I've read a lot about repainting such models so I think I know how to protect the painted layer :)

This is a forum Magdalena, not everybody is everyday posting and also sometimes we lost some topics, but the main reason is because everybody here is very kind and friendly! :)
So Welcome, welcome, welcome, welcome, welcome! Laughing Wink

Yeah, I didn't think about that. Recently I'm pretty absent-minded due to some work I have to do Laughing

Btw, in a few days I'm going to bid for retired Schleich Shetland pony (13232), so keep your fingers crossed! I already lost one auction, so I'm really hoping to succeed this time! Very Happy

Wonderful additions, Magda I love you

You have quite a lot of retired Schleich now already Very Happy

Thanks :)

I've decided to buy the retired Schleich in the first place, while they are still available in shops. I think I'll buy more of the retired ones and then maybe I'll buy some newer ones.

Collecta's swan is the best model I've seen! I expected it to be a bit bigger. It's small, yet so detailed, I wouldn't be surprised if he started to move Laughing
Every time I look at llama I think "guanaco" - maybe one day it'll end up as guanaco Wink

......

That is a brilliant idea, Magda !
As soon as they are no longer available in the shops, they usually rise drasticly in price, - at least the Schleich ones do Very Happy

Already commented your fantastic new addition in the other topic but is nice to see how your collection is growing! Schleich goes ahead but you are trying to find interesting figures in other brands! That's very nice.
I hope Susanne, Torben or Kiki don't try to make a similar list with amounts per brand! Willy and Amy I'm sure they will never have time to do it! Laughing

Thanks Roger :)

I've decided not to limit myself to one brand. Schleich was the first one I got to know but later I discovered more brands. When I buy them I'm looking at the model and whether I like it, the brand is secondary matter. I'm not going to collect all the possible models, just those which I like.

About the list - I don't know if I will keep it here, maybe one day I'll move the statistics to my blog Wink
