Hi Guys....after some pointers from various friends...thanks for them...

I have re-done the donkey a bit...


I used lots of WW2 refs (he he, well a flyer from the local horse and donkey rescue centre) by adding lighter shades under the body and the legs...so what do ya think ??

Looks great, especially the hat! Is the donkey a kit or scratchbuilt?

Thanks Guys...the Donkey is from the Tamiya set and the fur was made with Hair-Caot...

I have to say that this was a very fun project ...a little 'light fun' is a good thing and clears the mind !!

(I have an intrest in this product)...in the US you can get it from

Alasdair,
It looks like we (or the hobby community at-large) have maxed out your bandwwidth with your image host. May I suggest adding the images here? We don' t have any image restrictors currently and you can even display them on other sites if you'd like.

Cheers,
Jim
