Since getting more sheep from POLA seems and has been a long wait it was time to look for suitable STLs.

Not the greatest selection in realistic sheep, but enough to enlarge the herd.

Print in white PETG and hope for the best.

The herd is a-growing.

The existing herd spent the winter out in the snow to see how well they stand up to that treatment. They and the shepherd moved back into the nicer climate. The sheep as reference for the additions.
Some of those STL files are so tiny one can't see them on the CURA print plate without "Select All Models" and then they need to be scaled up by 3000% or more. :-o :-o

Picture coming up a bit later.
That the printing would probably be easier and studier with a SLA gizmo, but .... ;) @-)
The ankles are as fragile on the sheep as on some of the female figures.... oops should that be rephrased? :ymdevil:

OK here they are! Meantime they got dispatched to the Ferrero-Rocher box waiting for paint.

Those look good to me, HJ--but I think they're looking for some direction.

I think they need a few border collies to help out.

That cgtrader site has some pages with really cool factory pipes, machines, oil industry tanks and things. But I'm not sure what it is they are selling. Is it a program to make those parts in 3D with a printer that you buy, and then you can scale it up or down accordingly, or is it actual parts? Couldn't find a scale listed anywhere. Even the kit with tires, and boxes would be great for scene details or loads.
cool stuff there.
