PostSubject: Vanishing Wild Polar Bear rebuild / repaint   Thu Aug 23, 2012 6:53 pm

Hello again,

I'm a big fan of bears, so I really wanted the Safari vanishing wild male polar bear. Really a huge model.

But I didn't liked the face when I found him on ebay. Also his shape was a little bit strange.

So I decided to make a head and a new back.
Okay, I'm not totaly satisfied with the head, but I think it's okay.
Hope you like the result as much as I do.

And here with his family and some friends, waiting for the mojo black bear and the collecta brown bear.

There are two standing schleich polar bears, so there are two models to the left Wink

The big one between the schleich bears is from AAA.

The smaller one in front of the safari bear is from Preisser (1:25)

Wow, that is great work! I think it looks a lot better!!

I also have a question about one of the models in the big picture (the last picture). What brand is the polar bear that is right next to the Safari Black Bear?

Congratulations on your great new Polar Bear and the fine improvements you've made.

You have also a fantastic collection!!! Very Happy

Ohhh, and I am looking SO much for that bear Sad Sad Sad

Sorry, as some of you know, I HATE it when somebody re-models or re-paints a rare, retired model, but that is my problem geek Wink

As Roger says, - the model is yours, and you did a great job sunny

No, no, no ! Don`t be sorry, dear friend Shocked
It was certainly not my intention to make you sorry Wink

But I am very happy if you will think of me if you find one more cheers
