This is the kind of model I dream to have since the first time I saw it in a Susanne's topic.  drunken

A bit too brightly coloured  Laughing maybe, but with a big bunch of personality. Nevertheless, I didn't spend enough time and energy to catch one so it lived in a part of my mind and dreams. Then one day, one of those 2013 rainy days... A Danish faerie send me one of this little critter and made my day  sunny.

Thank you very very much Susanne  cheers

The blue wildebeest (Connochaetes taurinus), also called the common wildebeest or the white-bearded wildebeest, is a large antelope and one of two species of wildebeest.
The species gets its common name from the silvery-blue sheen to the coat, the base colour of which varies from greyish to brown. The forequarters bear vertical black stripes - the ‘brindled’ colouration that gives the species one of its alternative names - and the front of the face, the long tail, and the mane are also black. The long beard may be black or white, depending on the subspecies.
The blue wildebeest can be distinguished from the black wildebeest (or white-tailed gnu), Connochaetes gnu, by its larger size, lighter colouration, and a black rather than white tail.
They range the open plains, bushveld, and dry woodlands of Southern and East Africa, living for more than 20 years. The male is highly territorial, using scent markings and other devices to protect his domain. The largest population is in the Serengeti, numbering over one million animals.

cheers Fairy  !!!!  Laughing  Laughing  Laughing
Thankyou, Christophe !!! I won`t say what Danes usually call old, limping ladies, living with a lot of cats  What a Face  Laughing  Laughing

Great pictures, of this model, which is special for me also.
It must be years since I promised to get one of you, and then, with assistance from Amanda and Andreas, at last I succeeded  ! So thankyou to A & A   Applause

Apart from that, I think this model is fantastic, in spite of, or because of , the brigth colours.
And your photoes are awesome as always  cheers

That's a surprisingly nice figure. Nice sculpt, size and I even like the pose although it looks walking in "reverse gear". The front left leg doesn't look very natural but, the tail, gives a very good balance to the figure. Very Happy
When I was young, wildebeests, after a long migration, usually ended being hunted by a croc, however, it looks now they end being hunted by macaques. monkey I must get used with modern days! What a Face Wink Very Happy

I absolutely love the charm on this figure. I know its not the most realistic in terms of its color scheme, but I love having it on my shelves nonetheless. Congrats Kiki!
