Sunshine Skip (Custom Breyer Stablemate Trotting Foal)

Sunshine Skip

I’m actually pretty pleased with this little Add-a-Foal. While I’d probably tone down the bright white in the mane and tail if I painted her again, overall the model came out pretty darned close to what I had in my head.

She’s one of the later models, as you can tell by the in-focus photos and the nice fuzzy background. Nothing quite like managing to make the model the actual focus of the photo!

This is one of the bases I started making for later custom foals. Almost all of the G2 molds were very prone to tipping over, so I started making simple Super Sculpy bases that were painted and then cover with train grass. The model isn’t glued to the base, like with Hell’s Little Angel, but there are depressions for each hoof to sit into.
