PostSubject: Unknown brand Canadian or Sandhill Crane   Thu Jun 16, 2011 10:32 pm

I found something special on ebay Germany a few weeks ago, and for a very small price of course, as you know me, haha. Laughing
It was sold as a stork, but i already saw that is was a crane on the pic on ebay.
Now that i have it, it seems to be a Canadian- or Sandhill Crane.
The size is between the 1:32 and 1:24 scale as it seems...
It is not marked with Hong kong or China or so, so it must have a decent brand i guess...
It is made from hardplastic, like Starlux or similar brands, but it is not marked at all, so when somebody has a clue about the brand of this bird, please tell me so! Very Happy

Very interesting! Of course I don't know anything about the figure! I usually say: "Maybe Willy can help you"! ...but this time I'm not sure! Sad Wink
There are many experts in this forum so it is a question of time.... Sleep

It is beauuutyful Willy I love you
Congratulations flower

Of course I do not know the brand, but that doesn`t mean a lot Laughing

I think there are very few cranes on the market, - is that right ?
Lots of storks, flamingoes, herons, but not many cranes question

Thanks you Phil, Christophe and Susanne! Very Happy

Yeah Christophe, we always could ask old man Willy, haha. geek
But i guess he doesn't have a clue this time, although the brand New Ray came through my mind, but i am not an expert in USA models... Laughing

You are right Susanne, not many cranes in the business, and that is why this model immediatly struck my (sharp) eye for rare models or animals.
You can find very good stuff in the section animal models on e-bay sometimes, without searching for certain brands... Rolling Eyes

Well Andreas, that is good news in the fact that you have him to, but now is the question where it came from, and which manufacturer did make it... Rolling Eyes

Thank you Mihnea, yes, it is nice indeed, it has no more detail then it needs... Very Happy

Nice Andreas, although your model looks the same, the material looks from of softer plastic, mine is made of a quit brittle hard plastic, and one of the legs was even broken when it arrived! Shocked
And your model has material between the legs of the model, and mine has its legs free.

The other bird looks like a little egret, or Kuhreiher in German... Rolling Eyes

I think, on the material, it will be a model made in Hong Kong, so around the 1970's...
But there are very fine models from there, and specially the early Hong Kong models(mostly copies from other brands) have the same detail as the original models... :)

Well Andreas, you can always re-paint it yourself again, and make it a nicer model again! Very Happy

Well, i had the same experiences with self build air-plaines when i was very young, haha... geek
But maybe i am more patient now to do so, but i like the models to be original, only doubles could be ready for experiments... Rolling Eyes Laughing

I first had to find out what the word choleric ment, haha, never heard of that word in English before.
