Dear All,
I seem to be hung up on 1/32 scale: anything bigger or smaller just wont do!!
Being a huge fan of Britains, (I guess our favourites are likely to be the ones we enjoyed as kids) I just find Schleich produce, wonderful though they are, just so bloomin` BIG!! Any advice on alternative providers, including the Japanese, who are close enough to 1/32 that their figures can fit in with my Britain's legacy? Suggestions most welcome.

I'd try Breyer stablemate for domestic animals, and maybe Kitan Club, they have some interesting animals, also Kayiodo.

There are also few resins in this scale of wildlife, I think one of our forum members produces 3D printed animals in this scale.

I hope my small suggestion would be helpful.
Good luck with searching!

Wellcome here, Woodlander Very Happy

I don't know much about scale. I am sure Alexander is right study

But you are missing a lot of gorgeous models.
Perhaps you can also have a small not-to-scale collection in another place ? drunken

Reisler
Starlux
Elastolin/Hussser in plastic
New Ray (have 1:32 scale but also others)
A lot of Hong-kong and China made but mostly copies of british brands
Other British brands, like Timpo, Crescent
and Shapeways/mininature new 3D-printed models
Marolin

Have all 1:32 scale animals.
All is available on e-bay but if You are in Britain You might be able to visit one of the toy soldier markets that goes avery year. I have been in like four different in the Londom area and though they fokus on war there's always sellers who have animals.

Most of these brands have some models around 1/32 scale but not every animals, and Jeol is often a bit bigger than Britains Ltd.

Some Playvisions, K&M and Yujin can do the job too.

Among Japanese makers, Colorata, Bandai and kaiyodo have some interresting animals that perfectly complete a Britains collection. Very Happy

For example, some Bandai you could add to your collection Very Happy

Not sure if this is how to reply to your messages: this is the first time for me.
Wow!
What a lovely warm welcome, a wonderful response, and so many useful tips.
I have been checking out the leads you have all given me.
Alexander, I looked at your web site and am in awe of your skill and patience.
Christoph and Lennart, you have certainly given me some Googling to do!
Next step: I will try and post some pictures of where I have matched up Britains with other makes of the same or a similar scale.

Thanks for opening this topic, Woodlander. I am also a Britains fan and looking for other 1:32 animals, especially wildlife animals. Thanks for all the suggestions, especially Kikimalou for the pictures, very useful to see the size comparisons; if you have any more pictures, that would be great.
One comment: I have a few Timpo animals, but they are smaller than the Britains animals, so I find they don't go together so well.

Don't forget that pretty much all of the tubes, or "toobs," over the years are at that scale. There have been some fantastic models from these!

Thanks, good suggestion. I hadn't even heard of toobs. Just looking at some of them on the web, my impression is that a toob usually contains animals of a variety of scales. Is that true?

Yes, that's true. These figures are not made according with scale but instead they are designed to match a certain size. In an African tube, a scorpion can be almost the same size as a giraffe. The important is that they fit the size desired for their price range and also to fit the tube propperly. Thus, they cross virtually almost any scale what means that a few could fit accidentally with 1:32 scale figures.

The Hausser Elastolins look very good and your photos are great, Christophe. I especially like the tiger cubs. AreHausser Elastolins always 1:32? The difficulty with buying animals in this size is that most companies don't have a consistent scale, and when you buy on the internet, there is usually no (accurate) size information.

A lot of Hausser Elastolin 54mm are around 1/32 scale, but not all of them. For example, the mooses are too small and the Chimp and gorilla are too big.

More than that, Hausser Elastolin 70mm have the same sculptures but with a different size and are nearly 1/25 scale.

That's why I will show more pictures on this topic to help 1/32 collectors to expand their collection with good models...and not only Hausser Elastolin Wink

Thanks for the pictures, they are very useful. I'll look out for Hausser Elastolins. They seem hard to find in the UK. The ones on Ebay UK are from France or Germany, and expensive. I wonder whether not many were sold here, perhaps Hausser Elastolin couldn't compete with Britains.

Indeed, at that time, it was easy to find Starlux in France of course, Hausser was less known but still available here but Britains was unknown.

Not all the Starlux are 1:32, some are at a bigger scale (pangolin...) and some are smaller (rhinoceros, hippopotamus...)

Inspired by the photos in this topic, I have been scouring the web for 1:32 size animals. I haven’t found Hausser Elastolins for a decent price yet, but I came across these 1:32 animals:

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

The packaging and the animals don’t have a brand name, they just say “Made in China”.

The African bull elephant is 9.2/294 cm at the shoulder. Reports of elephants’ size vary, with Wikipedia saying they are 320-400 cm, Wildpro multimedia 300-400 cm with an average of 320 cm, WWF 335 cm, National Geographic 200-300 cm, Encyclopaedia Britannica 300-400 cm. A more reliable source is probably a scientific article by Della Rocca (2007), who measured 352 elephants in Chad and found that the largest was 323 cm: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] This observation seems to correspond to those in other studies, where the largest elephant is generally between 300 and 340 cm. Perhaps 400 cm African bull elephants exist, but this research suggests that sizes over 340 cm must be very rare. An interesting finding is that elephants do not stop growing during adulthood and that their size can actually be used as an indicator of their age. I hope you aren’t getting bored, but the conclusion is that 294 cm is quite typical for a 35-50 year old male elephant. Here it is next to the Britains bull elephant (9.6/307 cm):

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

The Britains elephant is slightly taller, but the unbranded elephant seems much bigger, because it is bulkier and heavier. A bit overdone, I’d say.

The giraffe is about 16.8/538 cm (measured along the bend of its neck). It’s a female (it has udders), but a bit hard to identify which subspecies it is. Perhaps a West African/Nigerian giraffe (subspecies of Northern giraffe), because the spots are orange with a fair amount of space between them. Giraffeworlds says that it is 490-580 cm (the females are probably on the smaller side). Here it is next to two Britains giraffes (15.6/499 cm):

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

Perhaps we could consider the Britains giraffe with the large spots to be a West African giraffe too and the other one perhaps a Rothschild (490-580 cm, Giraffeworlds) or Angolan giraffe (500-600 cm Wild about you), because it has darker spots.

Surprise (for me, but probably not for you): The elephant and giraffe are copies of retired Schleich animals. I discovered this later, when I was checking the ToyAnimalWiki to see whether Schleich has 1:32 animals. Indeed, some of their elephants and giraffes are 1:32, so I went to my local toy shop to see what they had and bought an Asian elephant, here next to two Britains Indian elephants:

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

The Schleich elephant is 8.0/256 cm at the shoulder, the older Britains 7.7/246 cm and the younger Britains 8.3/266 cm. Wikipedia says that adult males have an average height of 275 cm and females 240 cm. National Geographic says 200-300cm and International elephant foundation 215-365.

Although they have the right size, the Schleichs and Schleich copies don’t seem to fit particularly well with Britains, as they have a bulkier style and their body proportions seem different (larger head and legs). I also bought a rhino and another giraffe, but they don’t make the 1:32 criterion, so I am afraid they are out.

I like the marine animals better, because they don’t invite a comparison with Britains. I bought three:

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

The orca is 19.5/624 cm. Wikipedia says that females are 500-700 cm and males are 600-800 cm, National Geographic says 700-975 and Seaworld Parks 490-920. Here it is with some of its Britains prey (yes, orcas have been seen to catch moose swimming between islands):

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

The great white shark is 17.5/560 cm. According to Wikipedia, males measure 340-400, and females measure 460-490 on average, but they can grow up to 610 cm. The Schleich shark is rather large, but still acceptable as 1:32.

Finally (hope you are still with me), the bottlenose dolphin is 10.7/342 cm. Wikipedia says 200-400 cm (National Geographic: 300-425). It’s probably a fairly large dolphin, but within 1:32 range. Probably an offshore ecotype, which is larger (370 cm) according to Seaworld Parks.

It is interesting to see a size comparison with a few land predators:

I have ordered some Colorata and Kaiyodo animals (thanks for the suggestions), so hopefully more soon ...

Great contribution Rogerpgvg Very Happy

I agree with you, Schleich giraffes and elephants could be 1:32 but they are too chubby to fit with a vintage series like Britains. Heads are too big, they aremade to look more 1/20 with asmaller and cheaper size I think.

The Safari Ltd and the two Papo below are a better choice for a 1:32 African bush elephant herd.

The guy with the sunglasses is a painted Schleich man Wink Thank you for your support, the shed will loose the war Very Happy

Ah yes, they are the same; I hadn't noticed. You are right, these elephants fit better with Britains, both style and colour.

1/32 scale animals!!!! Empty

In the last few months, I have spent quite a bit of time measuring photos of animal figures on the web to try and find out which are 1:32 scale. The Toy Animal Wiki has been very helpful for this, especially the photos with a Schleich man or Lego block. I started looking into Japanese companies first, because the figures are relatively small and not too difficult to get (thanks to Brettnj). Today, I’ll introduce the 1:32 animals in the Colorata Endangered Animals Ethiopian Region set. There is a picture of the whole set here: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Four animals are 1:32 scale: The Thomson’s gazelle, warthog, African wild dog and spotted hyena. Apart from the gazelle, I don’t think they are normally the prettiest animals, but Colorata has managed to make them look their best. Even the warthog is cute!

Wikipedia says that Thomson’s gazelles have a shoulder height of 55-82 cm, and other websites mostly give similar sizes. The Colorata is 2.2 cm/70 cm, so quite an average-sized Tommy. The warthog has exactly the same shoulder height, which also makes it quite a typical warthog (Wikipedia says 63.5-85 cm shoulder height). The shoulder height of the wild dog is 2.1/67 cm; Wikipedia says they are 60-75 cm. Finally, the spotted hyena is 2.8/90 cm at the shoulder. Quite a large hyena at 1:32 scale: Wikipedia says they are 70-91.5 cm.

Here they are with a few Britains animals for size comparison. The gazelle-like animal is a springbok; the colours aren’t quite right, so probably not so clear, but it’s very similar in size to a Thomson’s gazelle.

I think it was a fortunate acquisition when 4 of the figures of the set fit perfectly with the desired scale. I was getting ready to ask you to take a comparison of the gazelle with the springbok and here it is even before I ask. The warthog conformation ressembles slightly a domestic pig but there is a very appealing piggy look on it. pig I think the wild dog and hyena works perfectly with the lion. Some alpha female spottted hyenas are really massive animals.
It is good to know Toy Animal wiki is useful for you and maybe, as your pictures are quite nice, you could provide individual pictures of these sets to put there? TAW doesn't have a dhole yet. Laughing Wink

You are right, Rogério, 4 out of 12 is indeed a good score. The score is lower with the Oriental region set. I think the only one that is truly 1:32 scale is the axis (or chital) deer. Its shoulder height is 3.0 cm/96 cm. Animal Diversity Web says that it can have a height between 60 and 100 cm, which is quite a wide range, making it easy to get a figure of the right scale (though other websites mention somewhat smaller ranges).

The clouded leopard is partly 1:32 size. It has a shoulder height of 1.7/54 cm. Clouded leopards’ front legs are shorter than their hind legs, so it’s a bit higher at its rear. Wikipedia and most other websites say that they have a shoulder height of 50-55 cm (very small range), so that makes it 1:32, but the Colorata leopard is rather long: Body length (minus tail) is 3.8/122 cm, whereas Wikipedia tells me their real length is 69-108 cm (the Colorata booklet says 62-110 cm, unfortunately it doesn’t give shoulder heights).

The blackbuck and sun bear are just a bit too large for 1:32 scale, but Colorata hasn’t made them look too big, so I find that they are acceptable for display with other 1:32 animals. Wikipedia says that blackbucks have a shoulder height of 74-84 cm; the Colorata blackbuck is 2.8/90 cm, so about 2 mm too large. But I estimate its length as 4.3/138 cm, which is shorter than the maximum length of 140 cm that the Colorata guide mentions.

The sun bear is 2.5/80 cm at the shoulder. The average shoulder height of sun bears is 70 cm. Harder to find a size range, but Facts and Details says 60-78 cm, so it just misses 1:32 scale.

Here they are with some Britains animals for size comparion:

Oh, and you wondered about the tiger, Rogério. It’s 2.6/83 cm, so a bit too small for a Bengal tiger (though not much and lengthwise, it may be OK).

Colorata will come out with two further Endangered Animals sets, one for Australia + South America and one for Europe, North Asia and North America. Hopefully they will contain more animals in 1:32 scale.

Lots of useful informations in your post, Roger.
I think through observation, they look all great. The clouded leopard looks big when compared with the leopard but I think the Britains leopard do really not represent a large specimen. The blackbuck may look also a little large but just a little as you pointed through your measurments. It is always almost impossible to get them completely in scale but all of these are very good approaches. When they are somewhat smaller, they can always be used as immature specimens. So, I think you can use also the tiger.
Observing some of the figures of the future sets, I believe you will find a few matching with your desired scale. Very Happy
