    Re: 1/6 scale Dogs and animals

    Hi Orion24, I can't really help much with the bears, deer etc,....but for dogs, there are a few companies out there who produce dogs in a good scale.
    One is BEST OF BREED, i have seen some of their Labradors and Spaniels, and they seem to be in good scale, but be careful, these companies can produce differing sizes of each breed, so please measure what height you reckon the dog to be, and work it out from there.
    The other is LEONARDO.
    They also do a fantastic range of dogs.
    Try EBAY,....most sellers will give the dimensions of the figureine.

    Here are two photos of two different Irish Wolfhounds.
    The first is a LEONARDO, and the bottom one is BEST OF BREED.
    Hope this helps mate.
    Neil.

    best of breed is a line under Naturecraft

    http://www.bestofbreed.co.uk/index.aspx

    I find it extremely hard to find 1/6 scale cat, most of the pvc cat i've seen is from papo, bullyland and Schleich, they are all 1:18 to 1:20 scale, which translate to slight over 1 inch from paw to head (excluding tail), too small for 1/6 scale figure.

    The only 1/6 scale cat that i know is from cyber-hobby accessories, if you buy 1/6 scale WWII fences, usually it comes with a single 1/6 cat.

    Anybody knows where to find 1/6 scale cat about 2 to 2.5" from paw to head other than cyber hobby?

    Storm, Try ebay mate,...your more likely to get a bargain there, as these animal figures can sometimes be more expensive from the shops.

    Check out this site if your looking for good 1/6 scale dogs, and look for "Best in Show", under "Country Artists"

    http://www.firebirdarts.com/catalog/-c-23_274.html

    They also carry other animals, you may find something your looking for.

    I've heard bad things about Firebird.

    I've had great luck finding 1/6th critters of all kinds at various dollar stores. Those little knick nack statues work great.

    If I were not at the laundry-mat right now I'd dig up one of the several dogs and cats I've found, take a picture and post it.

    I got all of these at the craft store A.C. Moore. Unfortunately, I think they've stopped carrying little resin animal figures.

    The only Crows I have ever been able to find came with The Crow figure. You almost always have to buy the figure to get the bird.
    Fire bird art, bad news steer clear of that place.

    Check out Cabella's for the deer. I know for a while they were carrying a deer that went with a series of hunter figures (ERTL Sportsman, but under the Cabella label).

    Cabela's deer/animals are much too small for 1/6th.

    I have one Elk that is about the size of a deer I got from Gander mountain. Nice sculpt though.

    Re: 1/6 scale Dogs and animals

    Came across this thread whilst trying to source some cats as accessories for Hellboy

    Sourced these ones from:

    Mandarava New Age Jewelry, Statues and Gifts - Egyptian Jewelry, Dragon Statues, Fairy Collectibles, Celtic Jewelry, Skulls, Egyptian museum replicas, Egyptian Jewelry

    and the cat in the middle from eBay from HT's Godfather

    One of the oddest online shops Ive come across

    FYI they dont do international deliveries on those cats (due to insurance) I ended up having them sent to a Good online friend Les Walker (Les's Sideshow Thread)

    This was taken on my iphone and then run through adobe lightroom for stylisation, ill take some focused normal colored shots at some stage

    I just 1/6 scale stuff was more of a main stream. Accessories are so hard to find, and when you find them they are so expensive. I know Barbie is not to scale, but some of the Barbie stuff works though. I am looking for Horses in 1/6 scale.

    Another place to look for is the yard art polystone/ plastic things that they sell at hardware stores and gardening stores. I have found an excellent cow before, as well as a bear.

    Dragon Models have started doing 1/6 Star Trek TNG figures, I think Data comes with a cat accessory.

    DC Directs 1/6 Supergirl also had a cat.

    21C did a 1/6th scale cat, came with the WAC figure, didn't it?
