Even some of them are not in good condition, they have them great history...and I can feel that :))
I`ll try to write the names of the brands...but this will be a hard job...becouse for some of them, I couldn`t find nothing....but it is also exciting for me, trying to find more about them..in this way, lurning more about the history of the animal models :)
And I realy need also your help guys for that...
Please, correct me if I`m wrong with some brand and year identification...and also to help me find an info for some of the models :)

Ok, so first the bach of the bears :

next model.. a polar bear cub. The paint it`s almost gone and it look`s like brown bear...but it is polar. According to Figurenmuseum.de , it look`s like it is Elastolin 1930-35 ... When I checked the catalogue photos, I found a similar model from Elastolin 1939-40 ....and a bit more clear, from 1954... I`m still not shure ..

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

Wow, Kosta, you have wonderful models here! Applause
It's always so interesting to understand that your newcomers have a very long story, and some ones are older than you drunken  Especialy when you get some animals about 100 years old affraid
I always try to guess how my retired animals lived, where and with which people. And later some people (sculptors; people as you, who repaint them; or people as me, which «show» streets and forests to old newcomers) give them the second life. It's great feeling, I think.
And I'm sure you'll give the great pension to your novices Very Happy
It was very kind of Attis to send such old and rare animals to you cheers

Kosta, it is fantastic to see how your collection of composition figures is growing! I'd love to help you with all these you can't identify but my tools are exactly the same as yours. STS catalogues, figurenmuseum and that's almost all. Your Lineol are correctly identified once those turned more or less common on forum and they're not hard to identify. I don't know how composition production works, but if it is as pvc figures, a less textured figure is possible when a mould is getting old. Maybe your wisent is one of last productions of that figure what helps explaining the great condition and less conspicuous texture. These figures are the wonders of our hobby in my opinion and they are a mix between toys and decorative little statues. Very Happy

This Bear is a Hausser, it is often sold as a panda.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Could be a part of teh Pfeiffer Lilliput series also sold later by Elastolin
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Hausser, was also used as Lion cub  Wink
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Hausser and Tipple-Topple used the same mold for this one. Mine is Hausser has a very different painting.

The last leopard is Hausser-Elastolin.
It was made for many years and in many painting-variations Very Happy

Some were painted as if the mouth was closed !

The main problem is that Tipple-Topple used the same mold...

As far as I understand it, Tipple-Topple was the name that the Hausser brothers ( Who owned Hausser-Elastolin ( often called Elastolin for simplicity))  gave to the models made from the Pfeiffer moulds when they bought Pfeiffer in 1925 -  - gosh, what a mess lol!

It is a bit more complicated than that, when Hausser bought Pfeiffer, they used some molds for their own brand and used others for Tipple-Topple. Both have catalogues and are different trademarks even if they had the same owners. Nevertheless; some molds where used for Elastolin and for Tipple-Topple in the same time. For example:Lynx, leopard, girafe calf, camel calf, beaver, otter...

Fox - amazing sculpture by the russian artist - Svetlana Hitrovo, made from velvet clay.
Anasta knows very good this artist and the ``Velvet Clay Studio`` where Svetlana works with the great artist - Evgeny Hontor.

I`m too slow with showing photos ..but here is my next present from Maria (Teardrop), for my birthday Very Happy
She is not very often here in the forum, but she could see that I`m interested in one Japanese model - Smilodon by Kinto Favorite ... and she surprised me with this nice model cheers
So let me show you my first Favorite model :

One more BIG Thank you Masha sunny

I like this model a lot. It has very nice posture...I`m not shure that it is very accurate Smilodon,
but anyway, how we can be 100% shure, how the smilodons looked like at that time ..:)
For shure I want to make him with more impressive colors...let`s see when.. Very Happy

I`m continue with showing more models from Maria :)
Guys I want to share with you my big joy with my next models.
They were on top of my wish list...and now I have them cheers
Papo samurai figures !
Woww, I was shure , that they are very nice...but when I saw them on real... I completely lost my words..
So detaild, so great models.
I love so much the Japanese colture...and I`m in love with these models too :)
But let me show them to you :

First all 3 of them ..with the horse Wink

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

So, we have this Samurai with archery on horse :

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

The horse is great.. very ``japanese`` :)

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

And now a small walkaround for the first guy :

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

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

So wonderful details, painted perfectly...
Just look at this face :

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

And the samurai with Katana :

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

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

again, a very impresive face and details :

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

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

And both of them together :

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

So, I`m completely in love with them ! :)
I just want to share with you, that I found two mistakes on the blue samurai with katana.
For most of us , they are maybe very small mistakes and not important...but they are important for
IAIDO (the way of the sword). You know that japanese people and their culture, have so many principles and rules... so it is the same with their martial arts.
So it is a rule, that the samurai holds the katana with his right hand close to the ``TSUBA``(guard),
becouse he takes out the sword from the ``SAYA`` ( scabbard), with his right hand
and when he hold the katana with two hands, it has to be opposite, not like the model :)
The second mistake is , that the ``SAYA`` ( scabbard) has to be turned opposite (the red samurai is correct), this is very important for the technique for remove the Katana.

But of course these 2 mistakes, doesn`t interfere to the model to be great :)
I just wanted to share them with you...for those, who are interested :)
Thank`s for watching and reeding :))

HOLY HAMSTER Shocked  You GOT them bounce cheers cheers

They are SO fantastic, - and very, very hard to find !! What a faboulous find cheers

Thankyou for the wonderful photos, showing how enormously detailed and beautyful they are Applause

Also thankyou for telling about the mistakes you found.
I have always thought it was a bit strange how the scabbard of the blue guy was sticking out in the air, now I know why  Laughing
But even if I almost broke my back trying to figure out about the way he holds the sword, I am not sure I understand  Laughing  Well, I was always a horrible clown at the gymnastics classes in school  Embarassed  geek  Laughing

cheers cheers cheers  
I`m very very happy to have them :)
I know, you also have them Susanne, they are real gem :)
Hahah, yeah, it is strange a bit, how the sculptor desided to make the posture of the hands on a blue samurai..
and I`m happy , that you also had a feeling about these mistakes :)
Also the red guy losts his Katana somewere... Evil or Very Mad ... but let`s say, that everything happend during the fight.. :)

These models, makes me love Papo more and more... :)

Very nice additions, Kosta! Very Happy
I love the pose of the New-Ray dog at the right, Veb Plaho are simply great and these Breyer dogs are perfect sculpts. Realistic proportions, small heads and paws, etc. Well, and what a deal with the foal! Shocked
