Tim,
That is one feral looking little beast! I can't imagine how to make realistic animal hair.

After assembly I painted the cat’s cage black, and the cat received a coat of Tamiya rattle-can gray primer.


I’m not sure how to paint the little devil up... maybe some combination of browns and tans?

Hey guys,

I started a Monster Scenes Feral Cat 1/13 build for the last Big Cats Campaign a year ago, but I didn’t get very far. Would it be acceptable if I picked up the x-acto again and finished it, its cage, accessories, etc. for “Big Cats V”?

Happy New Year!

Tim, feel free to join sir.



Thanks Dustin!

For those who didn’t see my aborted progress on “Big Cats IV” in 2016, here’s a re-post:

I have an F4F Wildcat, an M-18 Hellcat tank destroyer, a PzKw. Tiger, even an Aichi “Jake” floatplane on a cat-apult in the stash...


...but I thought this big 1/13 scale Monster Scenes Feral Cat might be a fun change of pace for the “Big Cats” campaign!


Quoted Text

Has whoever did that box cover even seen a cat? That is not a cat's head by any stretch. Looks more like a rat.



You are right! Part of this feral creature's twisted story is told in a small comic that came with the kit:




At only nine parts (the body halves, haunches, a 2-part head, ears, and tail) the feral cat assembled quickly.

The kit was designed with a twist-on head that could be swapped with a companion piece (a Saber Tooth Rabbit no less!), but this feature left an obvious seam at the neck. I cemented everything in place and faired in the gaps with Milliput two-part epoxy putty.

There was a little putty left after filling the cat’s joints, so I used it to make an extra artifact to place inside the nasty cat’s cage for additional “atmosphere”:

Thanks for the come along Daniel.

Your definitely putting much more into that build than I would have. And it seems your tackling all the build issues other seemed to have about it.

Some really nice builds in this campaign.

Gaz: I really like your camo, particularly how subtle you’ve made the distinction between the colors. You mostly can’t tell where it happens, just that some parts of the tank are brown and some are green. Masterfully done, sir.

Well, I'm going to begin with the TIger.

Danial, I came very close to picking that up for xmas. Very curious to see how it comes out for you.

I went with a 1/25th version. No place for the 1/16th to put.

Post lots of pics please.

All done. Weathering on this is minimal. I wanted to go for a new vehicle look.

I enjoyed everything about this build except for painting the tracks. I see why people don't like DS.










picked up two jagdpatherns this xmas, love the look you have done here.
