PostSubject: My ducks (new photos)   Tue Aug 28, 2012 7:36 pm

From geese I moved on to ducks... (unless time is linear, that is, considering I made two of these months ago Laughing ).

The not-quite-right eider is made from the Collecta domestic duck. The two Schleichs portray extinct species, the pink-headed duck (Rhodonessa caryophyllacea) and Labrador duck (Camptorhynchus labradorius). The mallard female is really quite a versatile model, and the male isn't bad with a little tweaking. Of course I'm no anatologist*, so doubtless there are numerous differences I haven't yet learned to distinguish.

* - which apparently isn't a word, but let's say I invented it. Anyway, a duck-studying type of person is what I'm going for.

The little grey is a Falkland steamer duck (Tachyeres brachypterus) for rather prosaic reasons: the wings are so damn short it was the only thing I could think of that didn't require resculpting! Although the model itself is pretty nice, the legs were rubbish and I couldn't fix them, so they had to go.

I've developed a mild obsession with the Safari toob ibis... this is the fourth one I've painted. As you may notice, it isn't an ibis at all, but a whimbrel (Numenius phaeopus). My original idea was to make it a curlew, but the proportions weren't quite right. They still aren't, but it'll do. Some brand needs to make good wading birds, stat! (I'm thinking Collecta, but Safari or M&B could certainly pull it off.)

This is my attempt at making a nene (Branta sandvicensis). Not quite done, but she's getting there... I just love these little Nayab birds. cheers
