Splendid looking figures put together via that Link. Thank you both for placing it.
It being a neat comparison guide,I have also left my appreciation for it there too.
It certainly is wonderful when an idea, and a bright plan come together in a certain creative style. BB

I can not set a concrete date for the release. But i can report the preparations for the production have begun. That applies to the fold with the Highlanders as well as to the four dogs still to manufacturing. I owe this to a friendly supporter, who is very helpful and conducive to me in this project.

I sincerely have spoken him my thanks, but i hope he will read here and so i want repeat me at this point :thumbup: .

You see, a little patience is still in demand. But not much more! :-D

From the Pleistocene to the year of their extermination in 1627, large wild cattle, the ancestors of our domestic cattle, roamed the vast European and Asian forests. Aurochs. They were huge animals, the shoulder height of bulls varied between 160-190 cm and they weighed about 1000 kg.

I've tried to depict these animal race with the greatest possible correctness and i plan to use this sculpt to explore deeper into the theme of historical, partially extinct animals. It is amazing how many animals, especially the domesticated ones, have changed over time. Much of what seems natural today has not yet existed 200 years ago. Much of what existed 200 years ago is no longer there. Certainly, it's not entirely possible to fully reproduce every detail of a species that was extinguished from this planet 500 or more years ago. However, i consider it highly interesting to try to make the image as probable as possible. I do this already with the dogs and i will do this also for pigs, goats and sheep soon.

Positive side effect: since in case of height i've been oriented downwards rather than upwards (165-170 cm), this bull is also usable for the area of the Iberian Peninsula for the period after 1627. It largely corresponds to a breed known as Sayaguesa or Zamorana.

Good news is on the Scottish Highland Cattle. The testshots have been successful. The production is commissioned, if everything goes well, the works are finished by the end of June.

Kesko wote:

Let`s check:
50000 cm² corrugated board weighed 100 Kg.
Minus two black holes 98 Kg.
Plus red print on belly weighed 1Kg.
Plus brain for BFF weighed 4 Kg.
Plus rest of brain 2 Kg.

Fake news!
There is one Kg miss!

Reminds due to its look of those black Spanish Bulls! :thumbup:
The others are a really nice set of Cattle. :thumbup:


The Cattle, look just like some that chased after me when I was a lad. Year 1964. It was a short cut across a wide piece of open wind swept ground ,that I often took while visiting my cousin John, who lived upon the high road leading to Scotland at South Shields. I cleared the drywall that skirted cattle kingdom by about 4 foot,free falling and rolling down the grass bank, and ending up in a Stinging Nettle patch,that was nearly as high as I was. As I sat once my tip over tail rolling had stopped, I was sure above me and beyond that wall one of them said, "Silly Boys!" Yes my Cous, was with me, and he too came a rolling down near on top of me as I sat in that patch that stung a plenty, hot as Fire! The remaining walk was dry-fully painful even after applying Dot Leaf!
As I recall in my over imagination of facts,there were about forty charging after us, but upon positive reflection there were only five maybe. All Bulls! BB
