It seems I have finally come across something which I am actually really excited to be doing, something I am very good at, and something I certainly will be continuing.
Welcome the world of model repaints.
I have always, even as a young child, tried to repaint and customise model animals (especially horses) to the picture I had in mind. Unfortunately, taking to your plastic model horse with a black texta produces some interesting results. Thankfully, my skills have improved over the years and are now marketable. I love the real-life feel of these repaints once I have completed them, and the fun isn't just that - it's in the painting process, and creating the character of my life-like animal!
These models are upcoming repaints from my 'box' of repaint 'to-dos'. Sadly it is very empty, and needs to be filled!
It will be interesting to see what this one becomes - both in colour and breed....
- So far, this model has been based/prepped and is awaiting its first coat. I do like the original palomino colour, and may keep in that range.
Large ears, though, a bit donkey-ish.
QH type build, perhaps ASH too.
