Hi Gerry, perfection depends on how critical you are. I always think I can do better and each time I make a toy I do make it better.

I would be very happy to have made this and I bet your grand daughter will love it especially as you made it for her. Be very proud what you have made for her, I think it's excellent, love the colors and detailing as well.

best wishes Grandpa bear (Nick)

She will not notice the flaws. All she will see is the beautiful horse that her grandpa made for her. Keep 'em coming.

hello peter v I used a bandsaw and finished the edges with a smoothing plane none of the parts were that difficult to cut which was one of the reasons I choose that model to make as it was my first attempt.thanks to you and phantom scroller for your comments.
