Thank you, all, for looking and commenting. I'm glad you enjoyed the bloodhound and hesperornis in particular - both look so decidedly grumpy to me they could probably do with the extra cheer.

Country Artists are a British film specialising in English countryside themed polyresin statuettes, home decor and other knick-knacks. They carry a multitude of different lines, of which the Best in Show series these hounds are part of is but one. The dogs in that series were sculpted by a chap called Paul Szeiler, and come hand-painted in oils. (My bloodhound even had some severed bristles from a paint brush stuck in its paint under its wrinkly chin!)

Do - I quite recommend them! The Best in Show series is in my opinion Country Artists' best mammalian line, sculpting-wise. Also, hello to a new member from a similarly newish one! I remember seeing and admiring your meticulous work on model horse tack on Fallen Leaves a long, long time ago, and by the looks of your avatar picture, you've only improved since then.

A couple of larger trades and a long stretch of photography-preventingly cloudy weather have resulted in my now having a fair bit of backlog to 'report' all at once. The pictures still aren't much good (oh, to have steady sun for a full afternoon!), but if I postponed this much longer, the models would amass into an even longer post.

Thank you to Frana, gogo1004, Susanne, Ricky_in_Tokyo, dinotales0724, DaveScriv, Krista, Ana, Taos and anyone I may be forgetting (NightLioness? Sortepletter?) for trades on this forum; to UK from DDF and a Russian gentleman who wishes to remain anonymous for my trades with them on other forums. If I'm forgetting anyone, you have my apologies - as I say, shown are many months' worth of acquisitions, and my memory on each model's individual provenance may well fail me.


We'll start with some mad fish from Japan (and one squid from Germany)! Altogether:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Some detail shots:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Kaiyodo 2013 Capsule Q Museum - Animals of Japan pt. 4, Shikoku set 07 akame (Lates japonicus), juvenile.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Yujin Saltwater Fish in Colour, pt. 1 13 luna lionfish (Pterois lunulata).

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Yujin 2006 Freshwater Fish in Colour Pt. 2 05 male chum salmon (Oncorhynchus keta) in spawning colouration plus secret figure larva & egg of the same species from the 1st instalment of the set.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Kaiyodo Aquatales Sunshine Aquarium 04 Asian sheepshead wrasse (Semicossyphus reticulatus). See the gills inside the not-even-a-centimeter-wide mouth? Besides mad detail, the model has most faithfully copied the species' [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
The hatchetfish, too, has the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] of shock and utter desolation on its face. Kaiyodo Deep Sea Odyssey Pt. 2 Silver hatchetfish (Argyropelecus affinis).

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Colorata Endangered Species - Fossil Fish set 6 alligator gar (Atractosteus spatula), 2nd paint version. These chaps were around when Triceratops and Tyrannosaurus lumbered on the land above, and they're still around quite unchanged!

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
A bunch of goldfishy/koi-carpy relatives: the most derived, a Demekin goldfish (by Kaiyodo); a decorative Ōgon carp in the foreground (by Kaiyodo); a tetsu-gyo, wild comet goldfish lookalike (center, by Yujin); and a Japanese silver crucian carp, or gin-buna (Yujin).

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Colorata Endangered Species - Fossil Fish set 4 arapaima (Arapaima gigas), 2nd paint version, being all demure.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Yujin Saltwater Fish in Colour, pt. 1 08 royal gramma (Gramma loreto), being very bright.


Next up is the agricultural department. The Cape buffalo isn't domestic yet, I know, but he will be. The Timpo bison..? Alright, he's just to become prehistoric, not domestic.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I forgot to include the Jean Höfler nanny goat Ana sent me alongside the JH cattle. Bummer. The little JH mooing cow has a cowbell on although it barely shows.

Travelin' Tex the Texas Longhorn from Susanne I made a new show halter (and an uncivilised nose ring) for:

Britains oldies for customizing from DaveScriv:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The scarce Akita from Taos is by Toy Major; the bulky St. Bernhards are Schleich while the daintier is a 3-d puzzle; and the red setter's an unmarked polyresin statuette I picked up for customizing.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Lastly, miscellaneous others. (Particularly: that osprey! I'll show you more of it a bit later once I have the photos ready. EDIT: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] is the walkaround!)
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Kitan Club Nature Techni Colour Ogasawara set 04 purple pincher hermit crab (Coenobita purpureus) in an Achatina shell.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
UHA Kaiyodo Dinotales Series 6 - Lawson Edition 097a Quetzalcoatlus. If you stood a little in-scale model man next to this one, the fellow would only reach the beast mid-leg. Yes, they were huge! And yet they flew!

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
UHA Kaiyodo Dinotales Series 3 - The Chocolasaurs Collection 069 Tapejara (=Tupandactylus) imperator.


I'll be putting up some walkarounds shortly of a few of the models, so I won't post even more individual shots here. Anyway. Those were my recently and not-so-recently acquired treasures. Thank you to all who helped me come by them.

Thank you all for the comments so far! I put up a few more individual shots of the last miscellaneous models in the original post - couldn't resist now that I got them ready.

Thank you, Andreas! Do hunt the lionfish - it's an excellent model. I'll let you know if I see one floating about on the 'net.

Thank you too, Jonas! I'm hoping to get to start on them soon; I'll only be able to work on them in between commissioned stuff (that's to say, when the "proper work" is drying, etc.), but they're so small and I so eager to see something become of them, we may see results reasonably soon yet. For comparison, here is the Cape buffalo in a shot from five hours ago - he only arrived today.

(He's thinking: "Where the hell have I arrived? Half of my back's gone! My beautiful horns! AND THEY STUCK ME FULL OF PINS! EVEN.. under there." He has multiple pins inside each of his legs too, as well as the neck and pelvis. His day didn't start so well, now did it..)

You're welcome! I know that, usually I work at night… Rolling Eyes Just yesterday finished some horses…
I'm super super curious to see 'em. I visited again in your homepage and I noticed the horse, who's in your avatar, is so tiny! So I can expect neat little cows! ; )
I remember when I saw the mare at first time and I fell in love! Very beautiful job. Like all your horses and drawings. Your style is average, stark finnish style with your amazing talent!  
That's funny! What a poor buffalo! Laughing Well, I'm sure he'll be stunning!  sunny

Ah, so that was it - I wasn't entirely sure if it mightn't have been a trade instead. The Japanese fish are something else, aren't they? Those people create aquatic life like no other. If you're looking for Jap fish to add to your collection, I shall mention I have a few up in my trades thread. A shameless plug, but at least confined to my own thread.

Jonas: Thank you for the cheering on! The wee horse is a mare no more - he's a young gelding now, and indeed 1:30 scale or thereabouts. Also - let's see those finished horses you've got, yes? Come on - post'em!

I'm looking forward to seeing your conversion jobs on the old plastic Britains cattle I sent to you Lea, especially the paint jobs if you do go for representing any of them as the Dairy Shorthorn or Gloucester breeds.

Aha! Still the same beautiful little horse! 
So I need to leave the laptop and take some pics haha... Check my custom topic then! Wink  Cool

Thank you, Dave! I do indeed intend to make a few into those breeds as you suggested, plus perhaps a British Longhorn, British white and possibly even some dairy type Devon if I can make that fly. Perhaps not. Normandes, Vosgienne or Pustertaler and Grauvieh in Almabtrieb regalia are also in the plans..

Neat! I'll hobble on over to check them..

Carola, 4U: I hope it turns out worth the needles, pins and public ridicule for him in the end, yes!  Cool He won't become a happy animal, but he will hopefully end up recognizable as a known species, at least.

They certainly are detailed and I, too, enjoy the scientific aspect of the models. I'd have a mind to one day have them all on one wall in individual shadowbox compartments with tiny name tags for their binomials, makes, scales and typical sizes writ up. We'll see..

Those fish are absolutely stunning ! Each one is a little wonder, - but together this crowd is stunning  affraid 

Tex's halter is awesome ! How you make these tiny things so perfect is completely beyond me  Shocked 

Thankyou for these fantastic photoes. I am surely going back again and again to enjoy  bounce Applause

Thank you, Susanne! That longhorn I got from you is the pride of my cattle herd now. He rather stands out in the crowd of meek Friesians and Simmentals, the exotic beast he is.. And I couldn't leave Tex without a bit of bling - he's a flashy fellow, after all.. The halter's far from perfect, though - but perhaps practice makes ..better? More irritated? Cross-eyed, at least?  Laughing 

I think the fish are really cool, too, and look most neat in groups. So much colour! Odd shapes! Interesting ethologies and evolutionary paths! As with that longhorn, I am very grateful to the folks who helped me come by those fish.

Well, I'm back again, after another bout of absence. Let's play catch up:

Earlier in the summer, I got these beauties all the way from the US from Paige, who went to a lot of trouble hunting them down for me. Thank you very much for your help, Paige! I never thought I'd be able to find the Little Busters cows, but here they are, doing a spot of mountain climbing with the re-released Schleich Angus bull and new Spanish bull.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Of course I had to craft a silly little halter for each:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I was also able to get the new Kaiyodo Microcosmos set of planktic organisms (from left to right protozoan Euglena gracilis; gazami crab (Portunus trituberculatus) larva; spear squid (Loligo bleekeri) paralarva; fairy shrimp (Branchinella kugenumaensis) female; common water flea (Daphnia pulex)) as well as the secret Noro giant water flea (Leptodora kindtii) and set-exclusive non-albino rock catfish (Silurus lithophilus) from the 2014 Capsule Q Museum Animals of Japan part 5 - Lake Biwa set. The Noro is apparently the largest animal gashapon Kaiyodo have produced. One can see its internal organs through its carapace - the species is famous for being so transparent it's nearly impossible to detect in the wild but for the shadow it casts.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Similarly, the Noro's main prey, the Daphnia and the Euglena of the Microcosmos set have had their internal organs and organelles made observable by having half of their respective carapaces and pellicles created removable. Like so:

Moving on to slightly larger beasts again, here's a draught horse resin by Lynn Fraley, sent to me (as a surprise gift, no less..!) and customized by a friend abroad; a CollectA Tennessee Walking Horse I've been resculpting on and off for so long that it feels like a new model to me too now that I've finally got it ready for paint (which is my excuse for including it in the shot); the Jean Höfler nanny goat Anna sent me a while back that I forgot to include last; and a handsome Britains Ltd. deer from Phil. Thank you to all of you for these (and myself for getting my act together with that TWH, finally..)!
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Going larger yet, in species if not model size, here are more Britains cattle (and one endearing Britains copy) from Phil, plus a lone Schleich Holstein bull I picked up on my travels:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

And, finally, the last of the figurine backlog - a Chinese dobermann amputee; a very ill if well sculpted CF Pet Puzzle bulldog; a Britains gnu I got from Taos a while ago already but neglected to include before (thank you, Taos!); a splendid Invicta Triceratops from Phil again; plus the new, scrawny Schleich crocodile baby.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Lastly, some individual shots and a random altogether one (because yay, I got new plants and tools, too!):

That is very kind of you to say - and it is sort of why I create the accessories, I guess; in a mildly infantile expression of appreciation for each figurine. "Welcome, new addition - here's something just for you!" Also, they're just fun to make, of course, and oft help me dodge work awhile.

Congratulations! I love the AR, and your TWH CM. And that Euglena is awesome! I'm a biology geek, and that kind of stuff really interests me. Very Happy

Thanks, LeeAnn! I, too, am rather into Euglena & co. there - if more with a layman's wonder than actual, knowledgeable geekdom. In the two little tanks in the background of the last picture I've for a long while now had two vigorous populations of Daphnia and miscellaneous Copepods going - the one with phytoplankton cultures supplying their main nutrition, the other supplemented from the outside. Now with the Kaiyodo models, I've been spending silly amounts of time staring at the little buggers trying to distinguish organs and functions. If only they kept still for a moment!

With my enthusiasm renewed by the models now, I've even been pondering on starting another culture of fairy or even clam shrimp, too. Both have proven fiddly, fiddly keepers, though, so I suspect it might be better for all concerned if I just stuck to marveling at my model version of the Branchinella..
