For traditional scale Model Horses (12" or taller) it's $70.00 which includes shipping (you provide the horse for me to paint). For anything smaller then traditional scale it's $45.00 which includes shipping and once again, you provide the horse to paint.

That would be pretty cool to have your own breyer model horse... Think I have to go out and buy myself a new one

Is there any color breyer model that is easier to paint over?

If you spray the horse first with a white primer ($5.99 a can made by Krylon and sold at Wal-Mart) you can repaint the model no matter what color it was! The pictures I posted above looked like this before I repainted him:

oh cool!

And it's $70 for you to paint and send it back? Do you want the money up front or after we get to see it?

How many photos of the horse do you need?

Yes, it's $70.00 for me to paint it and send it back via USPS Priority Mail (2-3 days) with insurance (100%money back if it's damaged when it arrives). I do NOT need money up front, only after the model is done and you see the pictures and approve (I want you to be happy!). I would need a picture of each side of the horse and if you could get one of the front and back too that would be wonderful :)

oh cool!

Next time I go out, I'll get really good pictures of all for sides, and I'll pick up a model I would like for Vega.
