after I showed you the Bullyland asian elephant, I couldn't wait more to share some pics of the old LINEOL one.
Created in 1938, this hughe 1/20 elephant is still IMHO the king of all.  I love you

I hope you will enjoy the tour  Very Happy

Thank you for your nice words. Very Happy
Yes it is hughe and mighty... But that's what an elephant is ! Laughing

Real truth, it is a 1/20 Asian elephant and that's the kind of animals who gave me some problems when I began to collect some Schleich. When you have the habit to own that kind of stuff you are unable to look at the Schleich without seeing the scale problem Shocked

Yes i know Christoph.
I still don't understand why Schleich doesn't make such big animals in the right scale.
It can't be a problem for the selling price, as people do buy the bigger dino's and whales too... Rolling Eyes

Yeah, I wish they did. I mean if Safari can make their Wildlife Wonders elephant, I don't see why Schleich can't make bigger models.

Hello Photobucket users,

We experienced a problem on Sunday September 2nd that caused servers to go down. This is affecting some of you in different ways, and we just wanted to make sure you knew that our engineers are looking into it, and doing their best to get everything back to normal as quick as they can.

Christophe, may we ask a question?

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

If you follow this link back to our "Ancient Elephants" post, you will see two of these Lineol Asian Elephants on the third picture. Would you tell us whether your Elephant has metal or composition tusks?

LOVE all this "scale" talk! I would like to see Papo, Safari, and CollectA do animals in "relative scale"!
I always refer to "relative scale" because, as I learned and was told on this forum, that to make perfect scale would be nearly impossible, so I'll settle for "relative scale" : )

Mine has composition tusk I guess... I guess because they are in mint condition but I can't see any breaking line between elephant and tusk cyclops

I love very much the WW Asian elephant, it is on one of my "Indian" shelves and can deal with models I love like Ana's Gaur bull, PAPO tigers...

I don't like the WW African elephant, it is big but the proportion are those of a subadult not an adult, head is too big for an adult.

Nevertheless, when I am speaking about a deserving successor I'm speaking about a brand not a few models Wink

I mean LINEOL, or BRITAINS, were brands with very fine sculpting, proportions and nearly in scale. None of the modern companies have all the qualities of LINEOL.
For example PAPO made some fantastic cats and a poor very poor dromedary, without speaking about the zebras...
SCHLEICH models are a bit more accurate than in the past but still out of scale.
SAFARI Ltd mad e a lot of good models, some are really very very accurate but how many scales ?
None of them have all the LINEOL qualities in one brand... But I'm not to old so who knows Laughing

I agree! I still cherish my Britain's zoo animals, because of what you said, good sculpting and relative scale. I wish Papo would use their big cats as scale for other models, and go from there.
I guess the same could said for Safari, CollectA and Mojo.
WW Asian elephant looks fine with Papo tigers : )
