New CollectAs

Unfortunately I am unable to do anything with these models until August time. I have so many commissions to do for people in about three weeks (starting this Friday, I am so excited!) along with horses to do for myself, I have to think realistically and put them away for a couple of months. I can't wait to paint them though!

The new CollectA models for this year are made of a harder and more durable plastic, which is great as they are sturdier. I am wondering if the peely paint is still going on though - there is only one way to find out... Unless someone else finds out first!! Then it would save me a job!

The quarter horse has a bit of a weird mane in my opinion but it is still such a nice model.

The mustang, in my opinion, could in theory be shown as a 2 to 3 year old andalusian filly, as the noble head is there in this sculpture but the overall build of the horse seems slightly underdeveloped to me... Perhaps once this one has a colour on I will experiment with different breed ideas and see how she performs in the ring.

The shire mare is just beautiful! Such an honest sculpt and I can't wait to paint this mare especially!

Now, the next two aren't part of the new CollectA series (heck, one isn't even a CollectA!) but both came from the same package and I still won't be able to paint them for a couple of months, so why not show you what I have for the future in my bod box?This CollectA is a fairly old one, but I have wanted one for a while as it is well sculpted conformation-wise... The model is just so cute too! I think I shall stick to the appaloosa theme with this one.

And last, but certainly not least, is Breyer's new Haflinger mare from the Classic collection. I have been after this model to customise for a long time and now I am struggling to come up with a colour for her! Hopefully one will pop into my head soon...
