Anyway, here is a better view of the Larami Whales. Notice that my Bowhead Whale has been repainted: the original paint job shown a whole white belly, which was not accurate enough for me; so, in the past, I repainted it to make it more accurate.

Here, I'm showing the cartboard painted backgrounds that were in the boxes, just behind the whales figures while they were sealed. Sorry for the rather poor condition of those backgrounds: I had to bend them to store them...

Here are the three smallest ones: Narwhal, Pilot Whale and Beluga. Those are plain: they are not hollow like all the other whales of the set.

Thanks once more Bowhead! I used again your posts to open a new topic. That's a very interesting series and it deserves its own thread.
I'll use your pictures on TAI as you know and credit you, of course.
I still don't know what to do with the bowhead whale once it is repainted. scratch
Very interesting to know that them made smaller figures not hollow.Very Happy

Well, you can use it and textually underline the fact it has been repainted, the original paint job shown a whole white belly, from lip to around anal region. You see, I didn't know back in that time I was making a mistake; I just thought I was repairing a mistake made by the company. I didn't know, of course, how scarce this set would become in the future (because it is REALLY REALLY scarce)...

As for the plain figures... the Sharks set made their three smallest sharks plain as well. How do I know that? Simply because my Larami Horn Shark is plain, while all my other (and bigger) sharks are hollow, like my large whales. It's not hard to conclude that the Bonnethead Shark and the... uh... whatever is the other tiny species of shark Larami made are also plain.

The work is done! I redesigned [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] on TAI once only two series are know. :)

Gee, thanks! But why didn't you tell us who provided you with the Larami Sharks? I am very curious about the collectors who actually own those scarce sets.

Larami sharks were uploaded directly by the owner that is a contributor on TAI. So, credits are not needed. If you click the picture to enlarge it, you'll find information about the contributor that uploaded it. Usernames are often the same as on forum so it won't be hard to know hwo they are. Larami sharks are from Andreas @Widdukind and it was he who uploaded them. Notice that not always who uploads is the owner of the figure and often, the owner doesn't want to be credited. :)

Many is my personal exageration once the most part of TAI pictures are from contributors. Maybe they don't want because they think it isn't needed or maybe to prevent that avid collectors try to find them and charge with messages to try to buy their figures. Laughing
Kidding, don't worry, you're not the first being credited and I find it informative actually. Very Happy

It's true that I make lots of efforts retaining myself from harassing Andreas to sell to me his Larami Sharks... bounce

lol! Yes, and it is almost impossible to find species that he is still missing in his collection. :)

Is it just me, or is Larami the only manufacturer who made a Northern Bottlenose?

I don't know any other figure of that particular species.
If it was not so many species, I'd love to see a topic of which older representations are known from all species. Laughing
