A Marx Toys horse. Some people think that it is small for the figures, but for a person that measure between 160 and 170 cm in the nineteenth century, is more than acceptable. This horse would measure 140 cm at cross. Less than 120 cm are ponys.

Very nice work! I have a Marx nodding head horse right now waiting to be puttied.

Great to see someone show how it's done. It takes some guts to start chopping one up!

Looks really good. I really like the sculpting of the marx horses better than any other 1/6 horse that I have seen. I just wish that they be a tad bigger to suit my needs but they do look good. I have done similar work with a Powerteam horse and find the size better for what I am after. Looks really good and please do show the finished piece with that fine looking cavalry rider.

Superior workmanship on old Thunderbolt! I'm still getting up the nerve to put one back together. This is an excellent pose for these horses. Did you add anything besides the bolt to support that leg? Or did you fill the leg? Thanks for posting!:clap:clap:clap

Most impressive work.

I too would like to know if you put in reinforcement in the hind leg, since it's holding all the weight now.

Nice, thank you for posting! I have a Marx horse reissue that was waiting for a very simple conversion with its hind legs for Indiana Jones' Arabian horse, but now I am emboldened with your tutorial to go all the way :)
