Making a 1/12 scale horse - part 6

by brae  

Continuing work on the 1/12 scale model horse. After the initial primer coat, I fine-tuned the body and then did a final primer coat.

I started the final paint with some shadowing. I thought he looked like Batman right here.

The hair was accomplished with multiple layers of paint using small and large brushes. I made a lot of it up as I went.

Some areas on the body turned out better than others, and I can always rework later...but I was pleased enough to move on. I do really like the face.

I had planned to complete the mane and tail today, but the mohair I bought photographs as muted purple. It looks charcoal grey in person. Even with the mismatched color, I can see just how having the mane will transform the look overall.

The face of the horse looks amazing. I’m sure the added mane will add even more realism. Good luck with your submittal.

So interested to watch this process - I have an appaloosa mare that could use a makeover. Jeb is going to be very handsome!
