Thank you everyone! Cyhyraeth, I really like that raptor skeleton, too - it may be my favourite of the Kaiyodo anatomicals I have. Katty, the chap in my avatar is a 1:30 scale Tennessee Walking Horse I customised and painted a long time ago - more of him can be seen [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], if you're interested.

The Deinonychus skeleton I ordered just arrived and it is missing an arm! Big bummer.

Oh noes! Perhaps you ought to contact the seller and see if he has a copy he might send you an arm off - or, failing that, I'd be more than happy to send you the suitable one on mine (I can easily enough make a cast of the arm for myself before that; I'll likely be customising the model anyway, so it won't matter to me).
Do PM me if you'd like to make arrangements for the latter to happen. I'm traveling at the moment so I may take a bit to respond, mind (which is also why I've still to reply to your last message to me - sorry! I will get back to you, at the latest once I'm back home).

Thank you Lea! I have contacted the seller. No reply, but I'll be patient. It's so kind of you to offer to send me the arm from yours!! Hopefully, that won't be necessary though. Regardless, it is very thoughtful and I really appreciate it. I hope you have lovely travels!

I checked out the photos and he is fantastic!! I didn't even realize that you avatar image was of a model horse. I thought the photo was a painting! You did a great job on him!

Scott: Thank you, I did have good travels indeed. Got to sit in a car a lot, which is always nice. Met two nigh-agreeable people and came off as a stuttering twit, but that's likely because I am a stuttering twit - and at least I came out of it all with new books to read.

Katty: Thank you kindly! He has an equally high-heeled 1:9 big brother currently cooking up (as well as two 1:30 siblings) who shouldn't end up sporting the many flaws he has (he is fairly old work), but it's going to be a while yet before those will get finished. If I ever get them done, I'll post a few shots here, too.


Alright, on to the last few days' haul. I got run over by a car the other week, so instead of putting the compensation towards fixing my bust bike, I bought myself some consolatory goldfish. I also recently received goodies from Taos, Ezhilan and a fellow Finn not on this forum (thank you all!), and the queerly coinciding arrival of this multitude of trade parcels made for what must be the best haul of the summer. (And the last, if I do intend to get that bike fixed before winter.) Behold, if you will:

Kitan Club Nature Techni Colour humphead wrasse (Cheilinus undulatus). This has got to be the best model of anything I've ever seen.
I can't quite believe I've been trusted to house something as sublime. (I did pay for the privilege, of course..) My pictures do it no justice at all.

Kaiyodo Dinotales 2002 Dino Expo limited edition seismosaurus (or Diplodocus hallorum, more likely) skeleton.

Wow. I clicked your link for "Tennessee Walking Horse" and your paint-up is absolutely lovely!
It is.
It's amazing! But then....I got curious about Tennessee Walking horses and made the mistake of Googling them. I ended up with some Youtube videos that almost made my stomach turn....UGH~!

But anyways..I love the fishes.
The colours and movement in the sculptures are beautiful.
I had some of those ryukin goldfish myself and the sculpt is spot on.

Yep, stack-shod TWHs are an utter, utter abomination. That's why I do them. It's the same with the massively deformed goldfish, really, and a lot of the dog & cattle models I go for.. I suppose chief part of my collecting is like that (I work in animal welfare, so..). It's not so much about celebrating the stuff depicted as it is just one more way of occupying my struggling mind trying to fathom the crap we people pull on non-human animals with such relish.

They weren't terribly expensive (at least in my opinion, considering how well-made they are) - most of them cost under $5, postage included. I wouldn't have taken them if they had been expensive, the mingy thing I am. Laughing

Yes, the "big lick", as it's called, is an abhorrent practice. As for the people torturing the horses, I doubt they're much different from your average joe. Likely they've just got different priorities and have (like most people, mind) learned from since they were young to not perceive of non-human animals as entities worthy of inclusion to any moral system, but rather as mere objects. There's big money and social regard to be attained in that particular horse-torturing business, too - like in most animal-torturing businesses around the world.

Thank you Tiermann and Scott! The bike, I fear, may well be beyond repair financially; buying a new, used one is likely to come cheaper. Makes me sad (and angry) - it was a very good bike, nigh new too.

The fish, Scott, are my favourites of the bunch as well. They are really well made!

I forgot to comment on this bit, Carola: I'm not sure if you are under the impression the horse-hitting and soring are things of the past now, but I'll reiterate they are not. No organisation, the US government included, has succeeded in ending that. The big lick people have lost some financial support due to social pressure from the outside world in the recent years, but their attitudes and practices appear effectively unchanged.

I really like your taste in figurines, although i fear the crippled carps for being a living nightmare-outcome of something once called "tradition".

As I mention above, I concur on your view of the goldfish, PeGe. I find the goldfish models as (or more..) grotesque as the big lick TWH horses I have (and create) models of in my collections. I'd love to find an equally accurate model of an unmutated Prussian carp to supplement the sad freak show I now have on my shelves to illustrate how far from the able, camouflaged, quick thing the fish have been made become.

Great load of additions Lea, those fish are exquisite! Even though I don't collect fish, I find myself wishing I had these! Laughing 

I hope you weren't injured in your bike accident, must have been terrifying!

Thanks for the comment, Harriet! I faintly remember a time when I, too, "didn't collect fish". I was indeed injured in that accident, but it mostly managed to incense rather than terrify. (I've been hit so many times now it fails to spook anymore. No, Finns cannot care to drive politely amid their vehicular weakers for a kind crap, and I find I cannot politely yield to their disregard either.)

I see yes, you are right in that, but somehow the youngs then should be informed and given the view on animals as other than 'things'. Though I guess maybe a human has a natural urge for feeling empathy towards other living beings despite whatever they'we been told.. Or maybe that's just the mind of a romanticist..? ..

Carola, I quite agree youngsters ought to be taught to view other beings as entities of their own, of course. It's just not a very lucrative or effortless way of thought to promote. As for our having any natural urge towards empathy, I've grown a bit skeptical of the notion. People have a strong drive to think of people and to an extent other animals in terms of groups, I guess, wherein the in-group, "us", as it were, is fiercely defended and empathized with, and the outgroups, "them", are easily dealt with in an actively hostile manner and certainly without significant empathy (which could even be construed as an act of treason, in a way). Most people seem to view most other people, let alone different species, as members of different out-groups and treat them accordingly.

Well, onto my plasticky personal in-groups of the month.. Here's a batch that came in a day or two ago from a massive, long-outstanding trade I am utterly chuffed with (great big thanks to Deseo!). Included are also a few eBay finds, a Schleich Husky from Taos (thank you!), and a Safari Oviraptor from Saarlooswolfhound (thank you as well!).

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Mmm, it's dogs again. Who might have guessed? For a slightly more detailed view as well as information on their makes, please see the SUY dogs thread [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. The lone wolf not shown in the SUY is a Kaiyodo ChocoQ Animatales series 2 Japanese wolf 046 (Canis lupus hodophilax).

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Kaiyodos (finally got that giant rabbit!), a Britains 1970 Jersey cow 2152, and the Safari 2005 "female" earlier paint version Oviraptor.

A few individual shots:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Kaiyodo UHA Dinotales series 5 096a Protoceratops pondering his fate with the series 6 104a Protoceratops skeleton. I never thought I'd find the fleshed-out version at a price I could afford.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Kaiyodo  2005 Aquatales Enoshima Aquarium series 2 06 hatching Japanese swellshark (Cephaloscyllium umbratile).

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Waiphoon Bull terrier. The details on this one are amazingly good, from bunched-up fascia to cowlicks and ridges in the fur. The shark teeth give him a slightly demonic touch, though. (He can't actually levitate, mind, despite otherwise demonic appearances - I merely happened to photograph him on very uneven footing. It's a shame; I'd rather like a levitating, shark-toothed Bull terrier.)

Lea, beautiful pictures and descriptions! I never thought I would enjoy a skeleton but this protoceratops is full of life... I mean... scratch .... full of bones! Wink
I also enjoy the big dog shelf project! Very Happy

Thank you, Rogério! The Protoceratops skeleton is indeed a very nice model. The Kaiyodo skeletals tend to be quite full of expression and movement, even if they are mere bare bones.

The dogs are nearly all headed for customisation eventually, but in the meanwhile they certainly do take up a shelf all on their own. I'm very lucky they cannot bark.
