Phoenix by silverfang07 Phoenix by silverfang07
This model I hold near to my heart...

For Easter I was surprised (and that's not easy to do with Breyers) with an OF Firebird. He had a chipped ear but nothing obvious.
Unfortunately several months later a freak accident in the middle of the night (involving my Huck Bey's) caused him to tumble to the floor and shatter into DOZENS of pieces; some which were never found. *I swear my house has black holes*
I couldn't salvage another ceramic stablemate (got a replacement) but wanted to 'restore' Firebird. That task proved to be a difficult one as supplies and lack of determination kept me from working on him for years. Last year I finally began painting him but wouldn't finish until this spring.
In honor of his former name, and new start on his (inanimate) life, I name him Phoenix.

He may not be perfect nor the fanciest, but that doesn't matter now.
