More Zoo news

Posted by Dave on May 5, 2011

New animals have just arrived for my zoo. These are hard to come-by Kerroby figures which I found on ebay.

Kerroby models is in Australia and makes highly detailed white metal figures of Australian animals. Australian post is quite expensive and the vendor I bought from the first time would only except AU$. So I was lucky to find these from a state-side seller.

This first lot is: Kangaroos, Crocodiles, Joannas, Emus, Koalas, Wombats and Felines.

The pussycats will find a home at the fair in the Dog and Cat show.

The second lot is: Kangaroos, Crocodiles, Joannas, Dingos and Wallabies.

The Wallabies are new to the Zoo Kerroby did not offer these when I first purchased some Kerroby figures form Australia.

New for the Zoo

I’ve just acquired two new Preiser animal sets Flamingos and Hippo’s for my zoo inventory.

I’ve also acquired a set of Merit dogs for my Fair inventory.

As time and funding allows I will be acquiring various dogs for a dog show at the fair. This will be just one of the many smaller shows planed for the fair.

This is the home of my 1:87th scale Amusement Parks.

On this site I will introduce you to the my miniature world of five HO scale parks:

  • My HO scale Theme Park
  • My HO scale Carnival
  • My HO scale County Fair
  • My HO scale Circus
  • and My HO scale Zoo.

I have been collecting kits and building dioramas for some time now and it’s about time I started to assemble a display. So I started this site to record the progress of my endeavors and to let other people who may be interested in starting their own scale amusement park follow along.
