Bless the beasts...
Pegasus Hobbies offers this set of 30 animals of nine species suitable for any era. Cows, bulls, dogs, hogs, hens, turkeys, goats, roosters and donkeys; male and female.

...and the mold makers
These figures are well molded with good feather and fur texture. Just a hint of flash. Natural poses. Sharp detailing. Only the fowl have some duplicate poses. The bulls' horns are molded separately.

The only potential problems are the mold tabs that need to be removed from some of the models, and the soft plastic. It does not hold paint well, but unless one intends to handle these figures, that should not be a problem.

Kitmaker member Paul Bods [PaulsBods] kindly allows us to use his photos of the painted models.

Off to market
This set of O scale / Quarterscale / 1/48 animals has endless possibilities for modelers of any subject.

I'm a professional pilot with a degree in art. My first model was an AMT semi dump truck. Then Monogram's Lunar Lander right after the lunar landing. Next, Revell's 1/32 Bf-109G...cried havoc and released the dogs of modeling! My interests--if built before 1900, or after 1955, then I proba...

Great review. These really do have lots of possibilities. One thing it really shows is the cross over from RailRoad kits to Diorama kits. Thanks

I just got these today for a little vignette or 2 that I'm planning using some of the old Revell Miniature Masterpiece covered wagon and ranch wagon that I picked up on ebay. They are a very stiff soft plastic so I believe that removing the mold lines will be easy. Nice sculpts.
