Packed for a Show: Veteran’s Day Live

I’m excited to be going to a show!
The last two I attended were NAN and the Breyerfest Open Show. While NAN was lovely, showing custom minis at Breyerfest is/was frustrating because there’s only six breed classes with no division champions AND they were so late in the day that they overlapped with the Swap Meet. This summer, I passed up on a show in a neighboring state that had a similar format for the mini classes. But while I was waiting for that class list to be posted, I missed out on getting a table at a different show that sold out.
So I’m looking forward to Veteran’s Day Live in Riga, MI hosted by Trina Houser.

This is another Arabian type from the G1 series. I think she began as the Arabian Stallion mold. Airbrushed bright chestnut this Arab cross mare has a Krylon-style glossy finish. I remember trying to straighten the legs so the model wasn't leaning over it's knees, as well as working on gender characteristics to go from a stallion to a mare. The Gapoxio gave me trouble, as did the fine wire I used under the tail (it broke). I love how the tail is in a strong wind, but the mane is not. This is a San Diego era piece as well, dating from about 1997.
