Yes, it's one of my favorite Peter Stone molds :)

Some more old additions. All apart from the last one is classic scale. I actually have another morgan but in a different colour. I will take a photo of it someday and show you guys.

Actually want to have this one resculptured and repainted. But I'm not good enough for it :/ The fringe is so ugly. I'd want the tail, mane and fringe longer and repaint it into a liver flaxen chestnut with some white on the legs and a snip and star.

And my two beauties. If anybody ever have any extras they want to get rid off, no matter colours, you know who to ask. It's so sad the molds are retired.

I'm so in love with this crazy thing I actually cried then receiving it. He's so beautiful. He would totally deserve his own post. He's number 48 out of 58.

I adore the PS TWH. My favorite PS mold. Arthur is a stunning paintjob on the mold cheers

I think you can give the CM a try! It's not difficult, and it's very hard to ruin the model. If you have a reference photo of what you want to do I can try to help you Very Happy

It is great to see all enthusiasm a figure can give to a person. Crying of joy is a very good feeling. Congratulations! Very Happy

He's my fave mold too! Probably why I got him and not any other. In combination with the colours and markings to, of course.
I think it is difficult :'D My hands are always so shaky and it is so hard to find air-drying clay that works, my biggest issue actually. And I have already ruined several models ^^'' and ruined clay too...

Thanks, Roger ^^ It's might have been a combination of having it rough and having the feelings building up at the time. But I'm not regretting getting him. If anything it means I really like it, rather than the times I almost not reacting at all and just put them in the nearest shelf without hardly looking at them.

Air-dry clays probably aren't the best for model horse customizing - I highly recommend Magic Sculpt. It takes a bit to get used to working with it but it's great Very Happy It's a two-part clay that you have to mix together but it's very easy to do.

No? Well, at least the ones I tried yet. Does Magic Sculpt dry if not mixed? Or just when mixed?
Mind if I ask how one can keep the clay from being "hollow" when for example building a leg or tail around a piece of wire? I can never get it to stick to any surface I want it to, only the ones it's not supposed to touch.

Magic Sculpt and similar products are much more sturdy Very Happy Magic Sculpt will start to harden within a few hours after being mixed, but the two parts do need to be kept airtight to keep them from going bad. Yes, they do need to be mixed together to be used. Magic Sculpt is the only two-part clay that can be smoothed with water as well, other products need a special smoothing agent, so that's helpful too.

I wrap masking tape or painter's tape around the wire to build up structure. That might be your issue. There's not much of anything for the clay to stick to, so adding that extra surface area will do the trick.

Does apoxie sculpt work just like magic sculpt?

I need to buy some new clay the next time I order from MPV. I'm much better at just making manes than doing legs. Now I'm reeaaally exited too get myself some new clay. Not that exited trying to do tails thought...

Yep, that's the same type of clay Very Happy

I'm not good at manes and tails, but the more you practice the better you'll get!

I woke up happy and rested today! Let's celebrate by showing off some new and kinda-sorta-new additions  cheers

The new Best of Britain stablemates! I finally have the Suffolk Punch. I finally have one of the highland pony mold. The shetland ponys colour and markings are most lovely.
And the clydesdale's colours suit it very much too. I actually wanted all of these molds in Original Finish and now I do  Smile I love them all.
That's actually surprising as I often avoid buying stablemates in packs as I rarely like all of the molds and colours.
You get an awesome poster with British breeds one it too, painted and with some small info written on it. I really want to frame it and hang it somewhere.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Here, have some draft comparison with Peter Stone, Penny-Club and one other Breyer.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
And talking about packs. Got this new donkey yesterday. It's not white, it's not grey, it's actually silver  Shocked
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
You guy's can have some lazy photography of these beauties too. Just cuz'.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
And one even more lazy of this one! Yes, it is possible. I can be lazy for laziness sake, not just for real reasons.
Have not yet decided if I want to remove it from the package yet. So this is all you get for now, sorry.
It have some lovely dapples thought. Even if I'd liked to have more of them.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
I'm in the flow. Let's show some more, yes?
Have some more rather old additions. They are even out of their boxes!
Mr Pink is my fiances favorite Breyer when asked. I'm surprised. I believed it would be some of the draft stablemates.
But that might have to do with the need to actually look through my row of models. And that's too boring  Rolling Eyes
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Newer but now kinda old additions, sort of.
Polo Pony and Frankel! My big but small conga. Hard to take photos off. Very shiny boxes you know.
Their eyes are very differently painted. Frankels are just... black. Can you see it?

I cannot wait until the Best of British series is available here in the US. bounce Need that Suffolk here and I want to see the Newsworthy in person - I'm not a huge fan of the mold but the color looks nice, I'm just not sure I like the combination yet.

I'm not the biggest fan of Newsworthy either. But he is nicer in person. Just wish he had some white markings on his legs. Don't think I get a conga going on with him thought  Smile

You should, I think the colour is really pretty too. I just wish he had some kind of markings on his legs :)

Here is a photo I forgot last time... Shasta Moon, collector's choice from 2009.

Trying to go through my collection and show things I have not shown yet. I'm so slow.
Took these photos when I was cleaning. So I had to move them all around anyway.

Aurelius. Present from my darling I love you  I love you  I love you  Not by surprise of course,
far to hard to know what I have, don't have, but most important, want  Wink
Some friends of mine wondered if he was made of porcelain.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Champagne Toast. I was not planing to buy him, but just had to when he showed up with pretty much no shipping cost.
I'm so glad I did. I really fell in love with him, and even if my love for different horses often differ, he (and Aurelius) are
the kind I think won't go away. I just feel the heart "jump" when I look at him.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
I really think these two look amazing together. So I try to always have them stand together.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Copperfox Celtic Warrior.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Copperfox Connemara Buckskin SR. I really wish I taken the dark grey instead thought.
As it's not up on the site as a regular run, I'm afraid it won't show up.
The connemara is my favorite of the copperfox horses.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Dapple grey stallion. I'm still unsure if I want to keep this one.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Some rearing lads.
