Footnotes: On Altered Moulds

Simple alterations to individual models are possible through the addition of brushed-on latex or a bit of surgery. Some Spares are altered and alterations to Special Order models can be requested for a small additional charge.

The most common surgical alteration to the equine moulds is a change of head-set such as lowered, raised, or slightly turned. Animals can have altered tails or ears, lengthened legs, and even have limbs removed.

Latex alterations usually involve hair: feathers for horses or long hair on the animal moulds. This method can also be used to slightly change the shape of heads; giving a horse a roman nose for example.

Wired necks can be requested for the equine moulds and wired legs and tails for some animal moulds, though the range of movement can be very limited depending on the mould.
