Hornet: Jumping Gelding

More photos of Hornet below! Click any to view much larger.

Hornet is a traditional (1:9) scale gelding. He depicts a historical trick horse free jumping, though he could represent any number of breeds and disciplines.

Hornet is sculpted and cast by me. He's packed with accurate details, from ear tips to hooves! He has hundreds of tiny details, including tiny veins, wrinkles, and delicate texturing. His mane is roached--though you're welcome to add any sort of mane you like to yours. I used references of many different breeds while sculpting Hornet, including several Thoroughbreds and various warmbloods. Given his type, you should be able to find a breed to match any color you choose for him! The real Hornet was a chestnut sabino of indeterminate breed. You may view the series of photos that were the inspiration for this sculpture here.

I am casting Hornet myself at this time. He's cast in white resin, with stainless steel reinforced legs and tail. As he is cast by me, he may have some small bubbles under the surface. In general these are quite good castings, and I do inspect each one, but please do be aware that a few small sub-surface bubbles are not unusual in these. The photos on this page are of a "normal" resin from the edition. Hornet comes with a lovely two-part acrylic base made by Leslie Ann Rothhaar of Towns End Art. The base/stand breaks down into two part for ease of shipping.

You may modify your Hornet in any way you like, but you may not cast the result.

Hornet is priced at $230 plus shipping and handling ($15 within the USA or $45 outside the USA) for payments made in full. I am also offering Hornet without his base (if you already have a base/plan to make your own) for $220 plus shipping/handling. Note that Hornets without bases may ship earlier than Hornets that require bases.

Time payments: Please read this carefully if you would like to purchase a Hornet on time payments:

Models purchased on time payments enter the shipping queue when they are paid in full. This means that if you begin payments now and take four months to make your final payment, someone who paid in full for an Hornet the day before you pay off your Hornet will receive theirs first. Depending on how many orders come in, it may take a significant amount of time to receive your Hornet. Please note that time payments are non-refundable. In the event that you do not complete your time payments, they will be forfeit after 6 months without contact. Shipping has already been included in the calculations for the time payment buttons below, so it's important that you choose the appropriate destination for your Hornet.

 
Manual time payments:
Hornet is $250 plus shipping and handling for orders using self-scheduled time payments (layaway). The higher price is due to the much greater time investment required on my part--I'm happy to be able to offer time payments, but they do take a lot of additional time for me! My standard time payment terms are four monthly payments of $66.25 (USA shipping) or $73.75 (international shipping). You are always welcome to pay your horse off early, and it's not necessary to make the payment on exactly the same day each month--just please let me know if you plan to take more than two months in between payments. You can use the button at right to start your time payments.

Scheduled time payments/subscription service:
Hornet is $240 plus s/h for scheduled/subscription time payments. Each payment will be automatically deducted monthly by PayPal--no need to worry about missing a payment! You can use the button at right to make 6 monthly payments of $42.50 (with USA shipping) or $47.50 (shipping outside the USA). Please read the PayPal terms for these carefully, as I do not control when payments are deducted. You may cancel the subscription at any time and make remaining payments manually.
