I got this antelope at the $1 store so bought a few of them. Repainting and using air drying clay (which cracks when drying!!Mad ) I tried my best to make it look like a hartebeest until one of the brands come up with one!!

Here is the original toy antelope--I first shortened its neck and then added clay to the outline of a hartebeest body:

Thanks NandO. There are many sub-species too of a Hartebeest--I was trying to make a Coke's Hartebeest but it started looking like a Red Hartebeest--maybe a Hybrid!! Laughing
