    • Looking long and hard at the pictures, I must ask if it is the picture coloration or the actual figure coloration, that seems to show that the greatest noticeable change to me is in the skin toning. I can see that the clothes are fading and it's possible that their mass invades the perception of the amount of fade between the areas.???????

      Five months of harsh weather and the figures seem to be holding up very well. Some slight fading and plenty of hail damage but not as severe as I expected. Heading into the sunniest part of the year now. We shall see how they handle that.

    • that these two broke might not be a quality issue.

      they are two of the three tallest figures. so the whole set-up landed on their heads, not on the shorties' heads.

      the real question is, why the third "giant" did not break? wearing a hard hat??

      So since only two broke, does that down grade their quality ?

      If a 70 MPH wind picked you up and threw you across the yard, wouldn't you break?

       

      Actually, when compensated for scale, the wind was much faster....

      A little late getting this one up. Winds gusting to 70mph. Blew the figs off their stand and broke two of them. I have repaired the joints with stem wire and superglue using the drill and pin method.

      Temps in the seventies everyday now with plenty of sun. Oh the pain, the pain!!!!!

      It is overcast here so the gang looks lighter in color than they really are. Looking at them up close in person I think the blue hues in two if not most of the resin figures is showing signs of fading. I will know it is for real when they start to get oxidation on them.

    • I'm impressed with the built in snow shield these Cibola folk have

      Weather: single digits overnight with day time high in the mid 20’s. Five inches of snow. Being a figure on the Cibola is no job for those fainthearted plastic cowboys from the grocery store. Out here, those that can,.. DO!

       

      …and those that can’t? Well they wind up in somebodies display cabinet being eyeballed by one or more curios kitties.

       

      ... And gentlemen in England now a-bed
      Shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here,
      And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
      That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day....Eh more or less.

    • Tree rats is probably it, now that I live in the city limits it sorta cramps my shooting them.

    • Cool, Bruce....  Instead of the ""headless Horseman"", you have the ""headless Dockman""....   

       

      Boomer, I am very much interested in your results from this test...

    • Neat idea.   I wish I had done something simiilar for the ones I have painted - and document the paint that I used.

       

      Of course not ALL of my problems are caused by the sun...   I don't know if a branch or a tree rat got this one:
