This is our herd of White-tailed Gnu. Sometimes the makers gave them darker tails than they should have done, but they are all Connochaetes Gnou bodies.

Lesley mde these two to imitate Elastolin back when we only had one White-tailed Gnu, and thought we would never see another.

"these figures must be really valuable!"

Maybe not. Some of them have been very much repaired. One of the Lineol Gnus came to us with broken legs, no horns and no ears! Collectors do not pay highly for repaired animals.

Very fine herd of white tailed gnus Cool And congratulation for your own models Wink

I'm still missing the Tipple-topple drunken

By the way, it's funny to see that in the XXth century first half, the white tail gnus were common among European companies. Nowadays, the blue gnus rules among them Laughing

Thank you Sue for sharing these photos. I don't know anything about these brands so to see these old figures is a real treat! Your sister Lesley did a pretty good job on the figures that she made...
I know you said you both have been collecting for years and rescuing old figures and I hope you both will continue to share pictures of your collection with us all!

I know I am really looking forward to seeing them. cheers
