But, to each their own. He really is quite nicely done. This auction model from 2012 on SCO was the best brindle I've seen them do lately, and I believe it was the basis for the later Diesel that was issued in brindle. Unfortunately, I think they needed a finer airbrush for Diesel, though I think that was also the first time they attempted brindle in any kind of release wider than one model. Not bad for a first attempt!
Next, the live show glossies! Here's Glossy Valegro:
I want one of these so badly! Anyone out there want to sell me one for the low, low price of $450? I'm sure they'll be selling for much more than that on the secondary market. If only I were into model horse showing...perhaps someday.
The other live show glossy is Banks Vanilla! Behold:
I briefly thought about buying a Banks Vanilla when they were first released, despite my dislike of the mold. There's just something about a pretty white horse. Fortunately, I resisted the urge (the only reason I considered it in the first place was because I already had a Sugarloaf in the collection and figured having one more on the mold wouldn't hurt). This year, though, I decided to bring along all of my silver filigree models that are on molds I don't collect and attempt to sell them at Breyerfest. Shelf space is always in short supply around here, so I gotta do what I can. Well, that and I need to do something to make up for my wild spending habits....so, more additions to the sales list it is.
That's all I have for today! Hopefully we'll get another auction model tomorrow!
