The photograph on the right, shows all the horse in their current state, save for three others, that need basing, painting etc. to bring them to the same stage as these.
Luckily I got a new injection of 'credit' cards from a friend, so the three will be brought 'up to speed' this week.
|"Poundlandworld" impulse buy|
It's a peculiar substance, feeling like rubbery 'Plasicene", very malleable and soft.
I used one of my Marx robbers as an experiment in cutting off hats and moulding a head of hair on him. The photograph shos the result, but even afte 48 hours it still hasn't hardened, so is impossible to work on atm !
There are Seven packets of 'clay' tubes each about two inches long by about half an inch diameter (50mm x 12mm approx.).
|The now hatless Marx gunman.|
|Huge Gorilla and 'farmer'|
The farmer in the photographs is about 25mm tall and is a cheap 'knockoff' of the old 1/32nd (54mm) "Briatains' " figure.
The other figure is an "Old Glory" native that had his staff repaired and hasn't seen Jimland yet.
|A few mold lines on the beast, but he's still a very usable figure imho|
|THe elephant is a good 'baby' size imo - but those toenails!|

That's all I.ve got htis week but I have still been planning my next two buildings and the week was interupted by a routine hospital visit on Friday. This week I have another annual eye review that leavesme unabe to see clerly for a coupke of hours. It's a diabetic check-up (I'm not diabetic) but I do have a degenerating eye condition to add to by slight colour blindnesss, And you wonder why I don;t like painting ?
Thanks for taking the time to visit, hopefully something was of interest (I doubt it - Ed.) and of course your comments are both welcomed and appreciated.
That's some mighty fine progress Joe, and great find in Poundland, the gorilla would be perfect scale for mighty Joe Young, hope all went well with the hospital visit, and the next one goes without a hitch for youReplyDelete
Thanks Dave for the encouragement, I currently I need all I can get.Delete
I f the clay from Pouanland would harden, it would be great, but I'll wait a little onger to see if it ever does.
The hospital vists are routine, from one a month tean years ago to one every six months now, so I'm used to it.
Always something of interest,how the other chap does it in spite of life.ReplyDelete
Haha, thanks Douglas, I keep plugging away in the knowledge that someone else has already done it better well before me.Delete
Great progress! Have a few very similar anamals waiting for painting :)ReplyDelete
Thanks you Michal, I'll be looking on in envy when you finish your animals.Delete
You've made decent progress! I view progress as just getting something done, whether finishing one project or moving forward with and pieces of many projects, which is what I'm doing at the moment with my Season of Scenery projects as I wait for bits in the mail or for stuff to dry.ReplyDelete
I wish the local dollar store sold animals like those, I'd pick some up.
Should be "bits and pieces." I forgot how to type for a second.Delete
I did a catch-up on scenery and various figures early on in the Lockdown here. I'm always on the lookout for figures that will fit in with any ofmy current projects, whether 28mm compatible or not. In the same range as the gorilla I picked up a bear (suitable for 54mm westerns) and an African buffalo not suitable for either 28mms or 54mms.Delete
Some projects will never be finished, there's always another figure (or two) that can be found a home eh?
Those animals will be great. Those Toenails need painting! Hopefully not red though! Perhaps just a wash?ReplyDelete
Thanks Brummie, the toenails will have a repaint in grey with a black wash.Delete
Good progress on the herd and the poundland purchases are great!ReplyDelete
Thanks Iain, I must admit I'm getting pretty bored with those horeses, but at least they're nearly finished.Delete
I pick up 'odd'stuff from Pundland, almost every visit, sone will be stored to use another day.
