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.
