Tiny zoo animals painted by my talented son


I had to show two photos of these little animals. They are cast metal miniatures and my wonderfully talented son has painted them for me with so much detail you would be forgiven for thinking they were much larger than they are on the first photo !
My son is a warhammer enthusiast so used to painting tiny figures. He doesnt even use a magnifying glass !
I'm so pleased with these and have more still in progress including a gorilla and an elephant :0)
They will look wonderful on Trimble's shelves :0)

Ive got a son like that too :o) he doesnt do much about the house to help but painting my mini-things is his salvation! he did a great job on my crocodiles a while ago but I'm on his 'to do' list for all the other umpteen things I need his eyes to paint for me! your lad has done a great job on the animals :o)

The best thing is that they work together, and play with their children, even when they are older :-)
The animals are wonderful, I'm curious to see the full menagerie!

They do look bigger, until seen in the palm of your hand! Well done to your son - he must have a very steady hand and they're perfect for the shop.

What a great paint job, your son is very talented too. Oh to have the 20/20 vision again.

When you're finished with him, may I adopt him? Wonderful work! Congratulations to you for making him and to him for such talent :)
