My customs!
« on: October 05, 2014, 10:49:26 PM »
Uploaded some of my customs to Photobucket, so here are some modified cats for you!





I followed the guide for adding images, but I'm not sure it worked correctly as I can't see the pictures when I view this message, please let me know if you can.

Thanks guys. I figured no-one was going to make a dik-dik (no matter how much I asked!) so I thought I'd best try to make one myself. The impala's horns were probably the hardest thing to do, had a hell of a time getting them attached to his head and making them the right shape. Here's a few more:

Thanks! I tried to copy the markings from my pet royal python.

Here's my repaint of the Mojo clouded leopard (I really liked the model but wasn't keen on the paint job):


And here's a side-striped jackal I made by repainting a Schleich black-backed jackal:

Here's my modified version of the Schleich dragon "Faraun". I didn't like the multiple horns, so I removed all but two of them and rebuilt the back of the head with clay. Also gave him red eyes, to make him more like an albino, and repainted the horns, claws, wingbones and back spines to a brighter yellow colour.

Thank you! The snakes were a lot of work to get the markings right, especially the Gaboon viper. That took ages!

Here's a couple more of my customs. I'm not sure what species the blue badger-like animal was supposed to be originally, but I made it a honey badger. The porcupine I repainted so that it looked like an African porcupine.

I own that porcupine and the one you painted looks a lot nicer.

Here's some of my lion and wolf figures that I repainted. The lions are Mojo and Collecta, both looked great in the stock images I saw online, but had terrible paint jobs when they arrived. The wolves are Breyer and Safari. Like many wolf models, they were painted very dark grey on top and white underneath, so that they looked essentially black and white. You simply don't get wolves coloured like Border Collies, I don't know why so many companies insist on painting them like this. So anyway, I repainted them.
