You had great adds Lea and you have great taste Applause And I love also the way you are showing them cheers
And please, tell your tiny scandalized man that STS is a special place made for unlimited praising and protect other sites from this bad habit Laughing

At last, I would be very happy to watch a Preiser bull walkaround Wink

Lea, with this idea you just made my day!!! It's so incredibly funny to imagine that!!! lol! lol! lol! I guess you could describe the person with such head in a story or something Very Happy drunken

Loved the video, mainly the part where the bizarre creature is almost captured! Laughing

Thank you! The snails, I'm sure, would appreciate your appreciation if they could comprehend the concept; they came to me from a life of being 'eww'ed at and squashed as a pest in a shop aquarium. Happily, I don't think they understood that reception either.

You're welcome ! I used to have the same kind of snails in one of my tanks but as my betta has a habit of eating everything that fits into his mouth they didn't last for long. I remember the time ; like 10 years ago, when I started having aquariums, those snails were also considered as pests. Now with this new trend of "natural" tanks they have regained a new status. I hope this will stay the norm as they are really useful little creatures.

Thank you Kiki! None too hard to mock up having actual taste when there are this many excellent models in existence - most I've got to do is decline from curbing my greed. Twisted Evil I'll forward your regards to the tiny loud man. I'm sure he'll hate it.  

Oh, my - that Preiser bull has already seen primer, I'm afraid. I've been basecoating groups of to-be repaints lately, and I'm sorry to say the bull was included among those. I wonder, would a walkaround of the sculpt be of any use to you if I made it once the bull were pastelled an uniform light grey (that'll be the base for the new colour anyway)? That way the sculpture and its topographical detail would still be well visible, even if the original paint scheme obviously weren't. I'm sorry not to have come by and learned of your wish sooner - I would of course have kept the bull from primer for a walkaround. I do wish I found the time to visit the forum more regularly - I expect his kind of thing wouldn't happen then.

What a Face I'm not sure, but I think that story begins like [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]:

He would see faces in movies, on T.V., in magazines, and in books nature documentaries, dissection videos, blogs, and biology publications
He thought that some of these faces might be right for him
and that over the years, by keeping an ideal facial structure fixed in his mind
or somewhere in the back of his mind, that he might,
by force of will, cause his face to approach those of his ideal.
The change would be very subtle. It might take ten years or so.
Gradually, his face would change its shape:
A more hooked nose, wider, thinner lips, beady eyes, a larger forehead transparent braincase, greener, longer eyes, smaller nostrils, a shinier forehead.

Ah, I wasn't aware of such a change in attitudes. That's good! There's never too much of invert appreciation. Now I just wish news of that trend reached our local pet shop aquarium keeper, too..

Noémi, the horse you posted is indeed The Apologist, a Collecta Tennessee walker customized with a lengthened body, new legs, tail and some added details. This is, as ever, mentioned in the original text accompanying its pictures. Here's for your amusement a small timeline of the figurine's changes from original finish to base paint, at which stage it's now stuck:

Thank you Carola and Jonas for cheering it on - maybe one day I'll actually finish it, too..! Rolling Eyes Thanks also to Scott for your comment - I'm glad you enjoyed the newbies!

Too bad No Wink Next time you fall addict of an unusual model, please make a walkaround Very Happy

Duly noted, Kikimalou! I'll know better next time.

Thank you Noémi - I'm glad you like the custom!

Incidentally, here are some beauties that arrived from Noémi not long ago - I didn't even know she was sending them out yet, but somehow she managed to have them arrive precisely on my birthday. Imagine my surprise upon receiving this parcel out of the blue. Inside were raw castings of Noémi's wonderful gaur cow and banteng bull, pictured here with their beautiful custom boxes and cards:

Noémi has trusted me to mend the models and has even agreed to allow me to customize them - thank you very much indeed, Noémi! I can't wait to get to start on them.

Thank you Bryan & Anna! I did have a good day then indeed, Anna - with the surprise arrival of those models it would have been difficult not to do. I'll be sure to post here what becomes of them once I get to working on the two. Your gaur (gayal) bull hopefully won't have to be lonely for long.

It is usual to see cattle in Nativity scenes, interesting to see your recent interest in this kind of animals. Very Happy Congratulations! Very Happy

Thank you Roger! My interest in cattle isn't very recent - I've always been quite drawn to the look of cattle - but my acting on that interest as a collector perhaps is, yes. For an anatomically-minded equine enthusiast like myself, they read like madly amplified versions of horses - all jutting bone, wrinkling hide and rolling fascia. It makes for fun sculpting and viewing, for sure.

Very nice christmas cattles. You prefer now cattles?
I think if yes you like the Prehm ( model train brand) cattles are interesting. I saw this figurines in real and they are in a similar scale like Schleich but made in plastic. You can see this cattles in the modern brand catalogues in Prehm :)

Laughing I've never been a horses-only collector, I'm afraid - wherever did you get that idea? But to be fair, I have gone a bit cow-mad lately, yes. Luckily not (yet) the other way around.

Been a bit quiet here recently, but I did get a few neat bovine packages come in the gone week. Thank you for these to Roger, Taylor (Taos) and my hyperactive uncle who's apparently been busy hoovering clean the local flea markets of animal figurines on my behalf, mostly resulting in Terrible Things as seen [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], but also some fine finds, as below.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Timpo cattle I'd never known existed. Taos was kind enough to hunt these down from a shop local to her - thank you very much! They're to scale with Schleich cattle so roughly 1:22, and are of a heavy, rigid plastic that holds sculpting detail very well. Nice!

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Holsteiners by Mojo and Schleich respectively.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Schleich Fleckviehs, both in remarkably good nick for their age. I shall see if I can bear to lay into either for customization.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Mojo Cape buffalo and unknown make fighting bull.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Made in China brandless fighting bull that would actually work, for all its deformity, as a 1950's show Angus; a similarly brandless China bull that I actually expect is meant as a 50's Angus or in any case represents one horribly accurately; and a China copy of the Britains Highland.


Thank you again for these, Roger, Taos and hyperactive uncle!

Thanks, LeeAnn! I just wish I knew more about the small bull.. no brand stamp, not even the customary "CHINA" on its belly.

Thanks Gerry! I'll be sure to post up the ones you've sent, certainly. And you're correct, of course, about the Mojo buffalo - I shall go correct it.

Great new additions, and yes those Schleich are in great condition. However, if you do customize them I'm sure they will look just as great!

Thanks Paige, Roger, Carola & Jonas!

I hope so, even if I can't quite share your confidence in that. Very Happy Ideally I'd swap them with an original finish collector for more beat-up copies of course, but with my location and the postage cots involved, I don't think that's a very feasible hope.

Thank you very much for the Fleckvieh! That uncle is a pretty super one in most other ways, too, indeed. He's entirely made of wild hairs and sarcasm.

Thanks! I like that book too - just the right size, height and homely colour. It's also most useful for inspiring frustration if read at any length. (I cannot even slightly into Russian.)

Thanks! I don't know - again, the Fleckviehs are out of production and in excellent shape, and the Timpos are similarly scarce and in fine shape, so it seems a bit rude to just hack into them. The others, though - oh yes. Twisted Evil  I don't know about art, but customs they certainly shall become. I don't know when I'll get to that, though - I've plenty of models to finish before considering these for remaking.


Today I got a sweet, small parcel all the way from the Philippines, and a week or so ago already some creatures quite matching the contents of today's wee parcel arrived from the USA. Show here altogether are the models the two boxes contained:

Here are the Philippine bunch - Kaiyodo Dinotales Diplocaulus, Pachydiscus and 2nd version Colorata Japanese bullhead shark among some fossils and a meteoroid mimic:

Thank you Gerry (Sauroid) for these!

And the Safari Carnegie Miragaia (finally I've got this beauty!), Kaiyodo Eryops, Bothriolepis & Acanthostega, which all came from DinoLord in the US. Thank you, Andrew!

Additionally, here are some individual shots of the above, plus a few of some nifty fish from a while back that never got a decent pictorial introduction:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
The Eryops, UHA Kaiyodo Dinotales Series 5 entry 092b. This one, it seems, is leukistic. Pretty neat.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Acanthostega, number 041 in Kaiyodo Dinotales Series 2. On this one Kaiyodo have, intentionally or not, ended up taking somewhat into account the translucent quality of many an amphibian's construction, which I quite like:

No guts or skeletal structure, though, of course.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Kaiyodo Dinotales series 1 Bothriolepis 016b going after some tasty molluscs, just like it wouldn't have in real life. Does anyone know which Bothriolepis species the Kaiyodo one represents?

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
UHA Kaiyodo Dinotales series 3 - The Chocolasaurs Collection Hemicyclaspis 059. Does anyone happen to know the species represented?
