Pictures of pictures, what a unusual thing! Very Happy I think you are right and these are Elastolin figures. I am the lucky owner of a long-tailed pangolin like this one. Very Happy
It is very hard to find information about Strola but [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] are enough to drive me crazy. affraid Very Happy

No, I am not sure. it may be one of these optimistic but often very useful species identifications from Willy. However, notice [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. study
Composition figures are normally based in real animals of local zoos (Lineol and Berlin Zoo f.i.), gravures from books or just copied from other brands.
If Elastolin are based on real Zoo animals, I don't know which zoo they used to focus their work. This is a figure from 1930's (according with Kiki), there was a long-tailed pangolin in Hamburg Zoo contemporaneous to this figure.
Many zoos exibited pangolins without being able of determine their species. If Zoos couldn't do it with real animals, it is much more difficult when we are judging directly from figures.
Do you have any evidence that it is not a long-tailed pangolin or you just think it doesn't intend to represent any particular species?

I have the figure and I can't identify it with certainty, it is surely short-tailed for a long-tailed pangolin and ventral area is too dark for a tree pangolin. The short-tail can be explained once the figure is small and a thin long tail could result very fragile. Tiopesao is selling it [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] but as you are German, you surely can find it cheaper with some luck. There's also the Pfeiffer version that is quite similar to to the Hausser. Very Happy
