PostSubject: Brands that make 1:30 - 1:35 scale giraffe, elephant or rhinoceros?   Tue Jan 03, 2017 9:28 pm

I've been looking around to find some wildlife figures to display amongst my dinosaur collection.
I want to mingle some extant mammals in there, just to get a general idea of how big/small dinosaurs were compared to animals we know today.
This dinosaur collection of mine is in 1:30 - 1:35 scale.
And I'm looking for giraffe, elephant, or rhinoceros in that same scale.

Since they will be just props, I'm not willing to spend a fortune on them.
(That money is reserved for the dinosaurs. Laughing )
All I've found in this scale so far, for a giraffe, is Britains and Playmobil.
Do you good people of STS forum have any more suggestions?
Any cheap China stuff maybe?

For example: I'm looking for a giraffe that's 14-16 cm tall.
An African elephant that's 11-13 cm tall.
And a rhinoceros that's 5-6 cm tall.

Thank you.

Great idea Very Happy

I would think that if the Britains giraffe fits, then other Britains models may as well ? scratch

Preiser makes models in various sizes for model railways, but as far as I can see, they don't make 1 :30.
HERE is their shop, but there are tons of retired ones, if you can find them. Very Happy

Britains is really the 1:32 brand, VEB Plaho are a bit too big.

In modern brands, the ColectA white rhino can do the job, the Papo African elephants too, I don't talk about the 2017 one.

Thank you all very much.  sunny
I'm surprised to read about the CollectA white rhino.
I actually have that figure. I'm going to measure it right away!

That link you provided Susanne, has some very funny 1:32 scale people.
Now I'm very tempted to go that route, maybe.

Really? The Papo elephants are smaller as the Veb Plaho elephant?

The head and body length of a white rhino bull is 3,7 to 4 m and his eight at shoulders is between 1,7 and 1,8 m. The CollectA white rhino scale is between 1:31 and 1/33. Very Happy

No, the VEB Plaho elephant is smaller than Papo or Britains Ltd and also smaller than 1:32 scale. I thought about VEB Plaho lions and maybe I'm wrong Wink

After seeing the SUY human figures (for the first time LOL), I realized that Safari ltd. has toobs with human figures.
Are they around 1:32 scale?
Does anyone know?

I don't have any of them but I think that the Romans for example are 1:32

Which toobs are you thinking of ? There are so many that contain human figures scratch

Many of the models are on TAI HERE , but as this group is relatively new, there are still lots of "holes" ...perhaps a job for me next winter Laughing

I was thinking of the Toobs "People at Work" and "Family Designer".
I have a feeling they would be perfect for 1:30 scale animals.

Edit: I found the answer to my own question on MPV.
They have them listed as 5cm tall = 1:32. Very Happy
