I think everyone needs to corral their impulses before this whole thing goes to horse hockey... and it will be too late to close the gate after the horse is out of the barn... I know my jokes are shoddy but without traces of humor where would be be? Up the Roman highway without a chariot?

Okay now that I have got that out of my system...

Great work, Jerry. I leave here for 6 months and this is what kind of horsing around I come back to...

I missed you guys and girls.

Jerry, looking really good so far-- missing the bucket though, (which I'm sure you'll add)--and I'd love to see the full plow-- those early curved blade, long handled earth splitters were really works of art in themselves, can't wait to see your rendition.
VR, Russ



Thanks buddy and yes,stay tuned. The plow is done but not the buckets or yoke.

Damn fine work, Jerry. I was guessing colonial America, and you verified.

Great use of flowing water. I think I saw another application of that method in another of your projects. Awesome.

Did you scratch build the figure?

Regards,
Jim



Thanks mucho Jim!
Yes,I have used water something along this line before. On my last dio. I "sort of"scratchbuilt both figgies. This one began from a Miniart guy with limbs moved around and re-puttied plus hands,feet and head from Hornet.They both ended up looking nothing like the componant parts so is it scratchbuilt or not? I dunno.

Yep after a hard day’s plowing I often miss my mouth too. Excellent figure Jerry, I’d thought the redcoats might be a-comin’ but you’ve leaked that they’re still 10+ years away - presumably it's somewhere in New England anyway? Reminds me of happy days strolling round Williamsburg in stifling heat as a (small) kid in July ‘63 (missing my mouth there too, with melting ice cream) - talk about time warp.



Yep thanks Tim,been there on many a hot day as well.
This guy will be from my hometown of Bethlehem,Pa back in the days when it was a Missionary town,built by Saxons and Moravians.

Shell,Jeff and Jim,
Thanks fellas for the kind remarks. I am almost done so you will get to see what i am going for here shortly.
The biggest clue is though....no war this time.
Sort of clensing my palette?

I was hoping you would write a how to on improving model horses plus the painting and finishing techniques you use.



OK,I will see what I can do.

Good job J. love the mane and tail. Just one observation. Being a horse person (my family breeds horses), there is one thing about chestnut colored horses; their coat tends to be darker at the top, and lighter toward the sides and bottom of the belly. I know you are also playing with light, but it struck me as odd. Here are a couple of examples:





Good point! Thanks. The pics I took of some much less purebred horses didn't show that as much. This horse is a lowly farmhorse and a worker. Your pics there show a superb horse/s. Arabian stock? I see the smallish nose.

Looking nice. The horse looks great, but hard not to admire the groundwork too.

What is your plan for the overall scene?

Hey Jerry, good to see you're not looking a gift horse in the mouth.


Great job by the way. This looks very interesting.

I think a how-to on the horses would be pretty great myself, as I have been contemplating the Florian Geyer German cavalry figure set by Dragon but painting animals is something I've not done yet.
