Quote from: dinonikes on December 11, 2012, 01:58:38 AMAny suggestions as to animal figures you might want ot see me make in the near future? Also what is the best scale to make them in? I started some antelope figures in 1/20 scale-so far I have a finished sculpted 1/20 Sable others are just armatures.I plan on making a series of figures of recently extinct animals, by this I mean to say ones that arent prehistoric- for example- Passenger Pigeon, Carolina Parakeet, Great Auk, Stellers Sea Cow, etc. I have a couple of books out of the library right now on extinct animals. It is sort of sad how many of the birds in the book went extinct where the last one was shot by a collector. I wonder if they still would have shot them if they knew it was the last one.Anyways, hope you can help me get a sense of what would be more desirable, things to focus on more than others, you know.Malcolm

I might make the White dodo to be different.The so-called 'white dodo' was a mistaken idea, I'm afraid. It arose out of the confusion with the (also extinct) RÃ©union Ibis and paintings of apparently 'white' dodos that were never painted from actual specimens.
