Big dog or small lady Kitnut?


Sort of bit of each, Mrs Kitnut is 5 foot 4, Zeus (that was his name) was 38 inches to the shoulder when on all fours, and 185 lb in weight. If he came over to you while you were sitting at the dining-room table, he looked down at you ----

Anyone know where I can get a 1/72 or HO/OO Great Dane?
I also need a tall blond bloke with a cravat, a hippy and 2 girls, one leggy in a miniskirt and the other short with glasses.

Thanks.

These do?  http://www.elhiemfigures.com/ourshop/prod_3470251-HIP04-1970s-Style-Teentwentys-Pesky-Kids-and-Great-Dane.html

Nothing a lick of paint won't put right.

Kitnut - food bills must have been high (for Zeus, not for Mrs Kitnut).  Or did he just go out and forage for his own amongst the naughty children...
I used to drink in a pub where a regular customer had a Dane of a similar size.  You'd be sitting at a table deep in conversation, sense a presence behind you, turn your head and get a face full of dog breath and slobber.

Drank in a pub near London Bridge years ago where the landlord's Great Dane used to come out from behind the bar and just snaffle customers rolls if he felt like a snack. Landlord just replaced them and apologised  ;D

Same dog also had a thing about briefcases. If it saw one he would come out from behind the bar and knock it over, if you put it back up he would repeat and growl until you learnt the lesson  :wacko:

Lovely dogs, my niece had a gorgeous one. Died way to young

When I lived in my first flat after my first marriage my landlord, a great bloke who was also a rifleman in the same shooting club as me, had a Great Dane who was a very friendly dog. When my first daughter was born, not the RAF's Best Air Trafiic Controller but her elder sister, the dog thought she was the BUSINESS and became her guardian, 'inspecting' anyone who came near her for any malevolent intent. By the time she was 1.5 she would ride on his back like a pony, hanging onto his ears as if they were reins.  ;D :lol:

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

We've had three Great Danes, the last one (which was a great niece of Zeus [the first one]) was a real sweetheart, the best dog we've ever had.

Bit of trivia, although the breed is called a Great Dane, it's actually the German National Dog

By the time she was 1.5 she would ride on his back like a pony, hanging onto his ears as if they were reins.  ;D :lol:

My parents had a Great Dane when I was about that age, I used to do the same thing as I got older (probably why I like them so much).  Unfortunately in the end, they had to get rid of him, for some reason he had taken a complete dislike to my older sister ----

Well they arrived today along with some other figures.  How could I resist NKVD men, pilots a werewolf and a zombie?
They look better in the flesh (OK in the shiny pewter) than they do on the website.
I'd take some pics but I broke the macro lens on my camera.
