Nothing major to report today. As I mentioned previously, I'm trying out some new techniques for this set. For the rubber part of the reins, I actually cast some rubber pieces from a mold I made to look like the real thing with grips and all. It's been quite a challenge so far (lots of castings before I found something I thought looked good enough), and I'm sure there's a better way to do it, but what I made isn't bad. I'll keep experimenting and perfecting on future sets but its time to move forward.
The bridle has been a little slow going since I have to paint everything blue, but its looking sharp so far! I also have my checker pattern created for the blinker hood in a scale that I think looks good, so I'll be getting to that shortly. I just ordered the last solid cast Valor from Rio Rondo, so once he arrives I'll take some pics on him. Yay! He's a cool model. Anyway, that's about it for now.
Oh yea, my dog and I did get our title this past weekend. We got a 98 out of 100, which was a tie score for 1st place but the person who got first was 2 seconds faster...so I got 2nd. Still a good showing and I'm proud :). Next up is Advanced Rally (RA title) and Novice Obedience (CD title). We shall see!
