    True, but so true is what I'm saying too. While bulls can get big and are prone to aggressive displays of dominance, it's the cows that will kill you if you mess with their calves. There's a reason Hungy, aka Gundam Pinzgauer's, Mother's name was DOZER.
    If they don't trust you that is. I've been taught to run and fly by a few.

    I'm a little too tired and a bit sore to GP01 tonight, for some reason my back hurts. Can't imagine why... Nemo, any ideas?

    ...so I chose to work on something else, painting the Armor Planetarium.

    20200803_231145.jpg

    The Mars, Uranus, and Saturn bases are painted, this is just a starter coat for the night. Mars is my "Red Comet" recipe, Saturn is the orange blend I made for Haro, and Uranus is something I whipped up in the paint pan. I used a bogus navy blue I made mixed with a color I didn't know existed before called "Warrior Purple."

    The Flight unit cradles just have a splash of primer on the 'cockpit' sensors.

    I'm getting the impression it's a Re/100? Neat!

    Now that I see it like this, It does look like a Formula Series... *temptation to work on F90 intensifies again*
    Those look really, REALLY good. Depending on when it shows up at the P.Bandai US store, I'll get this one!

    Speaking of looking good.. SHE! HAS! NURSED!!!!!

    20200804_082327.jpg

    Came out to feed the turnout herd and check to see if Nemo was hungry before preparing her bottle, and I see her springing about, trotting, and one chamber of Jesta's udder is DRAINED.

    20200804_082310.jpg

    Didn't get a full suckle just now, but she's noodling in the right places without any coaxing. We are making progress! I'm keeping a quart of milk replacer ready by the blender just in case I need to supplement but this is the big step forward I've been waiting for!

    Quite the scamp, ain't she?

    Unlike human infants who come out under-developed and utterly useless, babby cow is ready to GO almost immediately. As are nearly every other mammal.

    Statue Gundam looks kinda tiny waisted and big chested. Also, its waaaay too articulated. NOT SCREEN ACCURATE, NO DEAL.

    Every time I glance at this thread with my one of my brothers in the room, they always ask why I'm looking at pictures of cows. I tell them the same thing every time "It's the Gundam forum, Hadlen just likes posting pictures of his work" to which they repeat the question and I have nothing else to tell them.

    And this just keeps happening.....

    Too True. If a calf isn't up, nudging about, running, or nursing within the first hours, you worry. When you don't see a calf move at all for an entire day, you intervene. If you don't get or do either, you bury the calf.

    I just came back from checking on Nemo, she's in calf nap mode surrounded by the nusery herd, got a dried sticky face that smells like milk and Jesta's a few quarts lighter.

    Because hoomans are dumb.

    What can I say, I built that!

    -
    Anyway, we can get the thread back to the main topic again. I just did the last bit of work on these this morning before I head to the hay field. I put a second coats of paint on the planetarium bases. Saturn and Mars need a little extra time to dry and another light coat. Uranus though turned out fine last night. I added a little bit of my white recipe (contains duck egg blue and light gray in it) to the navy blue/warrior purple pan and it looks great. mind the 'faded' brushstrokes those will disappear with a clear coat.

    I'm using my Regular sized Microbrushes to do this. To be on the safe side, I went to check online about when I eventually need to resupply, and discovered the 'fun' way that Amazon is putting restrictions on some of them that says you need a business/medical license to buy the canisters like I did before since they're listed as medical/dental supplies, it's a shield to stop people from buying medical supplies. It's not a lost cause however since Microbrush does produce and sell their products as hobby supplies through Flex-I-File and Alpha Abrasives brand. The only problem is the price I paid for 400 regular brushes only allows me to buy 300 through Scale Hobbyist.
    The good news is I'm barely into my first 100 2.0mm brushes since I've managed to clean them and reuse most of them.

    It's a combination of our large relative head size and smaller womb in the mother due to our bipedal stance that the human body doesn't mature as rapidly during gestation as most other mammals.

    This is why babies are inferior and we should stop ordering them.

    Its a shoddy, half-assed product that requires a lot of follow-up work to make look good.

    Okay that's it, I'm done!!!

    The gratifying sight of an eager calf telling a tired mother she's hungry!

    20200804_140657.jpg

    Got out of the hayfield before 2PM, feeding time for the whole herd is at 3PM, and Nemo sees me coming out anticipating a bottle but when I pointed to Jesta, she did the rest on her own.

    20200804_140837.jpg

    By feeding time, she had tapped three tanks!
