Have checked Noch's catalogue - no ducks or even swans, perhaps I can pretend a goose is a swan

I've used acrylic paints but covered with several layers of yacht varnish to give an effect of depth .
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

We've got pigeons somewhere I seem to remember. Could larger versions become ducks ?

Langley Models enter stage right and save the day...

... scroll down the page until you get to:

Waterfowl,Swans & Ducks(Reference #A61), 4 swans and 4 ducks (Unpainted Kit)

I have some on the river on my layout, to say they are not large objects would be an understatement... blink and you would miss them  :goggleeyes:

The Langley Swans look a lot like geese to me! Still it would be fun to add later. Thanks to all who came up with possible ( or, given my failing eyesight & overscale fingers maybe not) ideas.

I have experimented with the pigeons - sticking them on the ground, on buildings, spent hours on it. They ended up just look ing like tiny bits of paper :thumbsdown: - unless you have infinite patience to paint and carefully position, then avoid

Or worse still pigeon droppings or actually probably closer to scale cockatoo droppings, which is what we have to put up with here... get hit by one of those and you know about it, for sure. Time to buy 100 lottery tickets even if you don'tbbelieve in that sort of thing  :D
