PostSubject: 1:22 topi by Joan   Sun Jun 30, 2013 12:56 pm

Hello friends,
Here is my last creation, a 1:22 scale topi male that will be soon in the shelves of some of our fellow collectors of this forum :)
As Cristophe and Anna use to do on their walkarounds here's some topi info from the wikipedia:
"Topis (Damaliscus korrigum) are a highly social and fast antelope species of the genus Damaliscus.  The species is to be found in the savannas, semi-deserts, and floodplains of sub-Saharan Africa.
Topi resemble hartebeest but have a darker coloration and lack sharply angled horns. They have elongated heads, a distinct hump at the base of the neck, and reddish brown bodies with dark purple patchings on their upper legs. They also have a mask-like dark coloration on the face. Their horns are ringed and lyrate shaped. Their coats are made of short, shiny hairs. They range in mass from 68 to 160 kg (150 to 350 lb). Head-and-body length can range from 150 to 210 cm (59 to 83 in) and the tail measures 40–60 cm (16–24 in). They are a tall species, ranging in height from 100 to 130 cm (39 to 51 in) at the shoulder. Males tend to be larger and darker than females. Topi also have preorbital glands that secrete clear oil and the front legs have hoof glands. When pressed they have been known to reach speeds in excess of 80 km/h (50 mph) although they typically travel at a jog. They are one of the fastest antelopes in Africa."

You'll can find more pictures and info in my web

Your topi model is very well sculpted, I think it captures the likeness to the real animal very accurately. I also like the pose which is not the typical static standing but shows action and movement. Great job.
