Hello,

knows everybody this figurine of Plaho? This Tapir should be produced for a short time in 1979, but coloring was too expensive so Plaho decided to make the simplier Lowland tapir

No No No No
It is a fake.
It never was this tapir.
And, not the body was painted black with white, but the normal gray body was painted with black paint. If you look at the photo closely, you can see it quite clearly.

Any news about this variation?
Or maybe it was just a collectors re-paint... Laughing Rolling Eyes

No news, but the author confirmed to me the error. The matrix was not black, he was painted black.
The figure is just a hobby painting, he would not confirm, however.
Mistakes happen ever again ...

I think he felt himself a little of its history ...

Unfortunately, very little is known about the Plaho figures...

Well, think the idea is not so good. Especially since you never saw this Tapir. No one can collect it.
Sadly, many believe in it and look for him. pale pale pale

I was just thinking, it's funny, how there are many Malayan tapir figures, but not many(any) of the Bairds, Mountain, or Brazilian....

Tobi is so careful. Shocked

Ancient History: He believed me more than a year not, that there were moose from Plaho. It was only when he found himself moose, he believed me.
I was glad he took the moose. Before that, he did not believe me simply. I felt almost like a liar and was sad. Crying or Very sad
The proof made ​​me happy and proud. bounce cheers

Good that Tobias found out.
I do have his catalogue to, and in there the moose was only made after the time of Plaho, so a later Marolin model.
You are never to old to learn, we all know! Very Happy
But i guess, the monkee and apes groups are all from the later Marolin time, isn't it? Rolling Eyes

Someone may have asked you this question before, but I will ask "What is the ratio of the Plaho figures? Are they all the same ratio or scale or are they different sizes like other companies?"

I really like your Plaho figures. :)

Goodnight and goodmorning you both!
I know you are a nightdweller like me Sue, haha.
Like Christophe mentioned, Plaho had different scales, not only in the series, but next to eachother to in some cases, like in the sheep. Rolling Eyes
I think, they were ment to be in the 1:32 scale, but some are about in the 1:24/25 scale, like the smaller species for example... Wink
I guess, it had to do with the fact, that they used a lot of the old Lineol moulds... Cool

Yes ! They certainly could be repainted ones of the Plaho models ( Brazilian Tapirs?) Very Happy

The material is grey under the black/white paint, isn't it ?

Yes, it's grey - under the black sections AND under the white sections. So the white is not painted over black.

Our two, along with the one that was referred to in the start of this topic, would make 3 identically painted models. Looks more like the factory painted the same model in a new colour than a private repaint?
