PostSubject: my Britains giraffes - repaint   Thu Oct 20, 2011 3:56 pm

I have theese amazing giraffes from Willy! I think giraffes from Britains are the best... all those details (tail, hooves, ears, knees...). But one think was pretty bad... coloring. So... here is new coat for one of them :)
BEFORE... I had to bend their necks a little and their legs...

They are the most wonderful giraffes I have ever seen Shocked

The mould is fabulous, and with your paintjob they are PERFECT cheers
It seems we are getting one more repaint-artist in our community Very Happy

Gosh, it must have taken you hours and hours, - and with your great knowledge about giraffes the result is just ...WOW !!!!

Thankyou for sharing the fine pictures of these marvellous giraffes flower sunny

PS :I did not know that Britains had made animals with moveable necks, that is a lovely detail !
PPS How tall are they ?

A few nice things about the Britain's giraffes... : )
1) SIZE...They look "relatively proportional" to the other figures in the collection, so that if you set up your African savanna display, they look proportional next to the Britains' zebra, ostrich, gazelle, gnu and Black rhino etc..

2) The lovely artistic detail and realism they have(The tail really looks like a real giraffe tail).

3) With the moveable neck, you can place 2 or more together, and by positioning the neck differently on how ever many you have, they can appear to look different figures(Instead of the same one).

Wow Martin, finally i see your work on these giraffes, great job! Very Happy

Yes Susanne, Britains made some animals with movable parts in their later deetail series, this giraffe, an austrich wih movable neck to, and a crocodile with a movable jaw, which could be openend or closed.
here are some pics, the giraffe, and her calf were made in 2 different paintversions to.

Yes, I have the version 2 giraffes. The adult croc is a cool figure too! With moveable parts(Although, minimal), they should be classified as "action figures".

Great Martin, I also agree that Britains are the best giraffes! I also have a one, almost unpainted and thought in ask Harriet to repaint it. Anyway I changed my idea because it is the only one I have and I want it as it is! I love her in that way.
But, it is really fantastic to see a repainting from someone that more than know all the details of a giraffe pattern, is someone that really love them and see them as the most magnificent animal in the world. I love you
Your work is absolutly wonderful so my big congratulations!!! cheers


Susanne: Willy is a complete expert in Britains and I'm also collecting them with the help of our fantastic friends. Someday I will show them compared with modern brands! I hope! :)

Ufff sunny thank you sooooo much Roger Very Happy Rolling Eyes I´m blushing right now Embarassed Repainting and painting giraffes is my huge hobby and now I´m planing to try massai... it´ll be harder maybe:scratch:

I can stand infront of giraffe for hours and study her body, pattern, moves ... personaly I think giraffe is the most amazing animal in the world :) All the details inside and out... breathtaking creature:) So... I´m really glad I have Britains giraffes because they are really the best and I´m glad you like my repaint :)

Wow, a Masai giraffe is really a tempting idea! :) I'm really eager to see this project, it would be hard surely but we know you will enjoy a lot doing it. :)

Beautifully painted. Well Done. Britains have made some of the best animal models with the best features, detail and body proportions to anyone out there.....
