    Hi Guys

    When I said to my animal loving Carole we were getting a dog ...she was delighted ....but ....think she thought something else in mind and not a resin one ...lol

    Following on from Richie's WIP on the PIp the terrier and recently posts he decided to cast a few up and are now available on the 1879 miniatures website

    https://www.planetfigure.com/threads/and-snappeth-the-spear-in-sunder.73783/

    I purchased one fom Richie with ease and it was sent very quickly

    So I decided to get I ready and primed

    Little bit of filler needed but I also lengthened the holsyptercandcadded a handle peeking out leading to a lanyard round Pip's neck

    Also added a repair patch on each elbow

    Replaced the spear shaft with suitably sized cocktail sticks , doing a bit of a rounded end , and drilled the bayonet handle out

    Not added whiskers at the moment but will do it later ....waiting fo eyebrow growth ..lol

    Currently mounted on what will be a temp base , will replace with a knotty one from Pete Watson of Pete's Bases

    This is from the website

    Cue the iffy ipads pics before full priming

    Superb, love about everything about doggies! Can't wait to see this one with extra interest. Now, If someone could do a bust on the following breeds : a poodle, a maltezer and or a biewer yorkshire terrier. That are the 3 dogs that are now living with us. You would only make them and me super happy but also my wife Rita!

    Keep up the great work Nap.

    Cheers,

    Gino
