PostSubject: My VEB Plaho Collection from the former DDR(GDR)   Mon Dec 06, 2010 12:03 am

Here is my collection of this brand so far.
Not all of the pics are very good in quality, as i made them log time ago, and i don't have a good digital cam.
I still miss a lot of them, and there are many variations, but ok, i do my best to complete them... Laughing
When 2 items have the same production-number, it means that they are sold together in a set.
First the farm-animals, and related stuff.

PostSubject: My VEB Plaho Collection Part 3, the wild-life...   Mon Dec 06, 2010 1:15 am

Here is part 3 of this collection.
I noticed when i was doing this, that there are models with the same production numbers, but not from the same sets, which wonders me too, so i have to ask the seller of this catalogue about this... Rolling Eyes

Some models are really worn off, but believe me, that those are models which are very hard to find in any condition anyway... Shocked
Models with antlers like roebucks, red deer, chamois and ibex are hard to find with those antlers too, specially un-harmed.
But i guess, when you are from the eastern part of Europe, this was or even is easier.
Like i said somewhere before, the Marolin company is still making a lot of these models, and even some, which VEB Plaho never reached to produce, because the factory closed when the Berlin-wall fell...
The models are exactly the same, only much newer of course, and in better condition and better paintings.
But sometimes, an good eye is needed to see the differences between them... Rolling Eyes pirat

01821 Hunting dog, maybe an Irish Setter, or an Longhaired German Pointer.
It has a high number because it was sold together with a forrester, so not in all of the series before.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
101 Moose cow, which was a VEB Plaho mold, but never came into production before, so Marolin made them afterwards.

Then i have these fowl-figurines, which were sold to me as VEB Plaho, but they are in a much bigger scale, and would even fit with Schleich, but it could be true, i don't know... Rolling Eyes
But that they were made in the former DDR, of that i am sure! Cool

Finally this group of Spruce-trees, or fig-trees if you want, made for the forest-series.

I hope you enjoyed my tour through my VEB Plaho collection...

Muy obligado Roger!

Yes, i guess it is the only South-American tapir in the business so far strangely enough... Rolling Eyes
Although they grey colour doesn't resamble the right colour in real, it is not a Malayan tapir for sure!

Nice to see them again Willy Very Happy .

By the way, some soutAmerican tapirs were made in composition in Germany. Even some models were painted brown or black and white but with the right American tapir shape.

I like the different positions of the big cats! It would be cool to paint/touch some of the figures up to update them.
The 01779 African elephant calf is really an Asian(hump back, small ears and one finger on end of trunk).

Thanks people! Very Happy
Christophe, do you mean the Lineol Malayan tapir, which i have too?
Or another composition model? Rolling Eyes

Yes, all the different positions and good deetails are coming from the Lineol models... Laughing
It was be a shame to get these old guys out of their vintage jacket, but everybody has its preferences, isn't it? Wink

I think you are right Baltimore...
I guess Plaho took the Asian elephant calf from Lineol to make this baby elephant, i recognised it too, but as it was the only elephant bay, it was ment to be with the adult African elephant... Rolling Eyes

Llamas are nice too young, I rely on Safari for the year 2012, a baby llama or guanaco lying, he is one in their Toob (farm animals)
I think;
And very often, small become great from what I saw! ??

Thank you Philip! Very Happy

Yes Susanne, thats true, but that is the case with all of your models, isn't it... Rolling Eyes
I counted quickly 164 Plaho's, on average i paid 3 euro's a piece for them, which is not bad, because there are some rare items between them.
Just count your Schleichs, and the average price you paid for them ,you will be shocked i guess... Shocked
By the way, you still didn't send your adress to me, so the package is still here... Laughing

Excuse willy!
I said that the laying of the fox is sitting!
that change
that in future the big brands could learn
is the translation that is not always correct sorry Embarassed

Willy excuus!
Ik heb gezegd dat de aanleg van de vos zit!
die verandering
dat in de toekomst de grote merken zou kunnen leren
is de vertaling die niet altijd correct spijt

WOW! Willy, some really nice figures. My favorites are the elephant seal the whitenose meercat (that is not the English name but still 2 great figures) and the rhesus monkey sitting. Keep posting when you get new ones!!!
