Frank,

It works only if you bet money on the Old Bob-Tail Nag, because
somebody bet on the Bay....

I'll bet on Sgt. Bob!

Nice work on the wagon Bob. It is a joy to watch your models come together.

Frank, Pete,and Rich, thanks for your posts.

Here's the horse with some small changes, hard to see in the photo. I made horseshoes
from styrene, roughed up the hair on the mane, tail, hooves and fetlocks with a hot
needle, cleaned off some parting lines, drilled through the lips so I can later add the bits,
and added the collar and beat up old hat from epoxy putty.



And here's the horse with the first coat of primer that shows up all the areas that still need work!! (good ol primer!!)



Bob

Bob, just catching up again with what you've been doing here.
I've been hiding from COVID 19 up at our cottage in the north.
Your wagon wheels came out looking wonderful!
The whole wagon looks very beautiful!
Looks like your horse that will pull this lovely wagon is shaping up equally well!
It's what we've come to expect from you!

For some reason I don't have a symbol for editing that last one and I forgot to mention,
all harnessing is strips of sheet lead, painted.

Bob,

Mare-ly wonderful. You have such deft hands at painting animals and doing details like the reins.

Bob, your painted horse looks great!
I never would have guessed that those reins were made from strips of lead.
Very effective looking!
