PostSubject: JEOL-Bull Elephant Walk Around   Sun Jul 06, 2014 12:09 pm


Forum member Jarda requested a walk around of the JEOL Saftvale bull elephant model, here it is.
I recently obtained the bull and calf elephants which I was searching for, I now have all three JEOL elephants.  
The original tusks were absent so I followed the catalogue picture and sculpted a replacement pair.  

The model is 1:32 scale
14.2cm long x 8.5cm tall x 6.5cm wide
The ears and tusks are separately cast and glued into place.

now that unfortunately Willy is not visiting regularly our forum, i can say comfortably that i am Jeolous without risking a comment that it is misspelt. Shocked That is exactly what i feel anytime i see a figure of that glorious brand.
Why are these figures so expensive if there isn't many people searching them? Because they are rare? We fimd cheaply many rare unknown figures. I think it is because they are excelent, this elephant is surely much better than the similar sized from modern amd famous brands. I'm glad you opened this topic amd i would love to see more like this one. Thanks amd congratulations for completing the family amd for performing a great work with tusks. cheers

Thank you very much for sharing this excellent walkaround  cheers 

Despite the ears have the same problems than the Britains elephants, the head is absolutely stunning and the models's proportions are really impressive. JEOL was a fantastic brand with a lot of fan, it explains the prices  Cool

Thanks Roger.  I think they are expensive because of rarity and also because of the excellent sculpting which makes them very desirable.  If they were rare but had bad design I wouldn't care for them as I only like figures which have nice proportions.

Thanks Christophe, you are right, the sculpting is really great. It is not realistic but has a stylized design to the sculpting (with good proportions) that is why I like this series so much.  I don't mind the separate ears personally, it reminds me of Britains which is another favourite brand of mine!

I know Andrew I know and understand  Very Happy 
Tough I like very much the Britains, I always have a problem with elephant ears and I know it is never the case with collectors who played with Britains in their youth. As a French boy, I used to play with Starlux which were not as realistic and not in scale like Britains but were better painted with glued ears. Each time my eyes fall on a Britains or a Jeol, my first idea is "What a fantastic model  Cool king Applause " and the second idea is " scratch  Why they have forgotten the painting and the glue?  What a Face "
My personal drama is I can't separate the two ideas  Laughing

The scukpting and proportions of these models match Britains in terms of high quality and design. I adore this set! How and where can one find such models? Ebay? If so how does one look for them?
