House Fly (Kaiyodo - Sticky Tack Insect Set)
« on: October 15, 2016, 05:56:30 PM »
Walk-around of the house fly, Musca domestica Linnaeus, 1758 by Kaiyodo, Sticky Tack Insect Set (2016). Ah yes, the common house fly. A cosmopolitan species that everyone is familiar with. Yet, surprisingly I am not familiar with a single other figure specifically attributable to this species!

The figure is 20 mm (not including wings nor appendages), making it roughly 4:1 based on the average adult size of 4-6 mm. It is well-constructed solid piece. The bottom has a plastic receptacle designed to hold 'sticky tack' so the figure can be affixed to vertical surfaces such as walls (as were all figures in the series). This receptacle is removable, easily snapping in and out (I took mine out--see the ventral shot below). The paint job is good, and the wing venation is accurate for the Muscidae (although the venation isnt completely painted black so you can't appreciate the venation in my pics)!!!

On to the images! Sorry for the quality of some; had trouble getting this guy in focus.











lastly I couldn't resist imaging this figure with a couple friends on dog poop (Flies on Dog Poop, by Discovery Kids-Disgusting Facts Kit)  >:D

Great that the receptacles can be removed. I was a bit to cautious with mine ;-)

Ah, great to see the fly looks as good as I had expected. :) I would have preferred it to have been a little larger but I'll still get me that set.
