On the prowl

This is the Papo 50017 leopard. I always loved its stalking pose, but something about its face always niggled at me; its cheeks and ears were too small.
See what I mean? Kinda looks like Simba from The Lion King.

A powerful predator, such as the African leopard is able to haul a dead gazelle up a tree... It must have powerful jaws. So, I whipped out my trusty two-part epoxy and beefed up his cheeks and ears. A few coats of paint later, and voilà!


  1. Wow! Looks great!

  2. That is quite a transformation - from toy to a powerful looking cat. Well done!

    1. Thanks B! :) This is stretching my creativity (and eyes! LOL!) to the limit.
