A month ago I did not have a rhinoceros made from composition material, - now I have THREE  Shocked

Here is a picture of them, together with the latest one from Schleich ( left) to show the size Very Happy

The first one is extremely rare. It is from Neo-Form, and was made some time in the early 1950's.
Later the horn was made from a rubbery material, because the first material is very, very brittle, - as you can see, the front horn has the tip broken off  Rolling Eyes
Well, - rhinos DO break the tip of their horn somtimes, don't they  ? Wink

The next one is from Elastolin.
Yvette and I bought a batch of models together, and had a lot of fun sharing them : One for me, one for you...it took us two wonderful evenings on the net  cheers
The light gray paint shows that this model was made after 1950. The pre-war variations of this model are brown.

Yes ! It is a copy, only smaller and another material Wink
We could not get toys in Denmark the years after WWII, and as patents were cancelled, three Danish compagnies made copies : Neo-Form, Danolin and Nordlyset .
Some were even sold to Germany !!!

cheers 3 great models came in your home :)
I love rhinos! And these 3 models are not only with old histoty, but also very nice looking :)
And with so good condition Applause
Congratulations for them Susanne :)
Whatching the first model by Neo-Form, I know that is a copie of LIneol, but also I was thinking...
it`s reminds me of a model which I have....and yes, I fond it :) I have some animal toys from my childhood and they are very interesting made it from extruded polystyrene.
So the rhino which I have look`s so much like this one.
If you are interested, I can make photos of him and also the other animals, to show them to you :)

Great new additions, I especially like the Neo-form black rhino, even if it is a copy the Lineol. Though rare, I have seen it show up a few times on eBay recently.

I think it was the best decision you ever made allong all your life as a collector. Composition figures represent, in my opinion, the golden era of this hobby. Very Happy
All 3 are very special, the first, although clearly a copy of Lineol figure, is just a copy of the best African rhino. Very Happy
The 2nd one shows that the sculptor was so careful placing the folds of the skin in the right place that was not able of noticing that Indian rhinos have a single horn. Wink
The 3rd is not a replica of an Indian rhino but an artistic piece with a very good artistic sense. The ondulated profile in dorsal and ventral area, The crest and ridge allong the back in perfect harmony with the tail and almost framing the piece. The striated lower legs in harmony with the horn, the head in low but froward pointed pose giving almost an aerodynamic profile to the figure, helping in the fluidity given by the strong walking pose.
But now you and Yvette will promise me that you'll both sing and dance [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Laughing

Rhinos are awesome creatures. Powerful, beautyful, strange and dangerous  Very Happy
So if I want to or not, I often can't resist a model of these grey giants, and now three more have joined the flock Wink

The first one does not really fit in anywhere, he is made from foam rubber, and he is not grey...the brand is called [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], and he is made in Kenya from Flip-Flop sandals found on the beach  Laughing
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Again I was fortunate to get hold of a Neo-Form model : The Indian rhino  cheers
Even more lucky - The same seller had the role model : The Indian rhino from Lineol 1930 Very Happy Very Happy
Here they are together, as usual the Neo-Form is the smallest .

Three great additions Susanne Very Happy

The first remind me the end of the 70's and I agree with Kosta, it is very very cool.

The Lineol and its Danish copy are great finds too. The Lineal is out of this world and unfortunately out of my displays too Crying or Very sad Wink

I would love to watch a complete walkaround of this Lineol drunken
