May Model of the Month (Dog Project)
« on: April 21, 2009, 10:01:28 PM »
I wondered if anyone wanted to have a go at a more complicated dog.  So here is one for you to try.  It isn't easy though.

Actually I am thinking this might be a bit much.  I will see what else I can post instead.   This is the model I was starting to show.  I would delete this thread but don't know how.  I dont think many of you will want to do this.

Well I just did the bfg and am going to bed now so I will perhaps do them tomorrow although I noticed the measurements are not there so it wont be easy for people who like the measurements on everything.  If you like to just make things by eye its ok I suppose.

well maybe I should show the model in another photo then.  I am not sure they are the same model or if I made a bigger one after the first.  I suspect I made two sizes.  The tail looks like a 260 on the dog standing alone so the rest of the balloon can't be as bit as the one next to me.  I can't remember though.

Clever boy.  Does that mean you have won a prize?  Hmmm will have to think of something.

Would be nice to see a few more attempt the model of the months as each month it seems that fewer and fewer are trying them out and they do take a while to post all the details.

When I saw Thelma post this I thought it was OK but after making the model I was very impressed with the detail and the reaction from others, this is possibly the most realistic dog that I've come across.

So come on you know you want to have a go  :D

OK - I gave it a go.  Not nearly as good as Thelma's or Graham's but I'm pleased with a first attempt![attachment=2:22er5wze]0528092041.jpg[/attachment:22er5wze][attachment=1:22er5wze]0528092041a.jpg[/attachment:22er5wze][attachment=0:22er5wze]0528092038a.jpg[/attachment:22er5wze]
