|The Italeri bears looking like a comedy act|
In the Italeri Gladiators pack you get a pair of bears and a pair of lions.
|Flannigan and Allan ?|
|Two x fours|
I was lucky enough to find a suitable bag that contained a single bear on all fours and bought two of them of course.
|Two legs good, four legs better.|
The photograph clearly shows the smaller head/face on the Italeri model and to distinguish my two bears and their counterparts I painted one pair in a very dark brown and the other i a less dark brown, this can be clearly seen in the photograph above (I hope).
|Two hex range good|
A final word about these bags of plastic animals (I did buy quite a few) is that they really are garbage ! All are made in a soft plastic, that wouldn't be out of place if used as a squeaky toy for a dog and they also have other issues ! The bear for example has a distinctive 'join' around its mid-rif as well as the normal flash I associate with cheap toys. I've cut the flash from the model, smoothed out the join and then re-cut the bear's fur patten into the model before painting (they took paint well) and I'm more than pleased with the final effect.
With a quick welcome to my latest follower, thanks for taking the time to look and that's it then for this week.
