PostSubject: Britains Gaur bull   Fri Aug 17, 2012 10:52 pm

This model was number 1321 in the Britains Wild Life line. It was Issued in 1979 and withdrawn in 1998. One of the last animal figures introduced in this famous range.

Modelled by Ron Cameron the Gaur was made in PVC plastic. I think you will agree that Mr Cameron did an excellent job sculpting this model. The stance and muscle definition are both superb.

Marked on the belly area "BRITAINS LTD ENGLAND © 1979.

Thanks Chris, that's another interesting topic with knowledgeable information and beautiful pictures! Very Happy
Mr. Ron made a fantastic work with the sculpting, I have it and I love it! If Britains paintings were as nice as sculptings it would be hard to beat the British brand. This gaur is a great example. It would be interesting to find why they decided to give these colours to this creature. But, with such sculpture who cares? Very Happy

Hi Scott

I think Christophe was referring to the colour Britains selected and the fact that the lower part of the legs should be painted white. Here is some information on the real Gaur which includes a few photos of this species:

Thank you Roger. The background information comes from Britains catalogues and this book:

The book gives details on who modelled each figure where it is known. Very useful information and a must have book for anyone interested in Britains/Herald plastic figures and indeed plastic figures in general.

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

What I exactly mean is : IMHO BRITAINS shared the "gold medal of sculpting" with HAUSSER ELASTOLIN in the 1960's and 1970's, maybe even better than ELASTOLIN.

What I deplore is the cheap painting on those models, not gold and not even a medal What a Face If the sculpting was so so... I would understand " Hey we are solding cheap models with cheap paints cheers "
But no... No I know BRITAINS did this to save on cost and sell more but it hurts me each time " Hey look at the wonderful models we made for you Cool And now a few scribbling to ruin it geek " It turns me crazy bounce

I have the same feeling with the elephants, great sculpting with even not glued ears. I remember an African elephant, the walking one with ears which always pop out from the head affraid

My story with BRITAINS sailed always between a love affair and a nervous breakdown !

Christophe I guess you are not entirely happy with Britains!

I do sympathise but with my personal historical connection to this brand I don't see these faults. Laughing

Chris, I'm not entirely happy with BRITAINS but I have a lot of them in my shelves Very Happy It is a great company which made great models Wink
BRITAINS animals make me nervous because they are like wonderful top models with awful clothes or a BIG cataclysmic button on the nose What a Face

But I understand your special love for BRITAINS and collecting is first a love affair drunken

I have to say STARLUX is also a great brand with many many flaws and great qualities... I can see the defaults... I could be nervous too but, as you, it is a love story which began in the sixties Laughing

One of the reasons for Britains' choice of a Gaur was the massive bull "Conan" kept at the Regent's Park Zoo in London.

Many a zoo-visitor ogled Conan and trotted off to the souvenir-shop to buy a model!

Many thanks Lesley for this information. It certainly makes sense to me now why this animal species was selected. Very Happy

Nicely said Christophe.

Of course we will always remember our first love. Laughing

The first animal figures I remember were the Herald farm animals from the late 1950's. This was when I was 3 years old. The Britains Zoo animals came later when I was about 8 years old in the mid 1960's.

I do have some Starlux figures but these are soldiers. One day I hope to get a few Starlux animals.

I understand you "elderly" guys, because i am one of them to! farao farao
But still, those models from the 1960's and 1970's are my greatest love in my collection!
Even more then fantastic Lineols(which come next) and all of the beautifull stuff that is produced these days!
You Chris, Christophe and me grew up with these models, and i only knew about Britains, Timpo Toys and Hausser Elastolin, not even Starlux or Reisler.
They all have something that no other model can give me, how beautifull they maybe are... cheers

I remember playing with Herald farm animals when I was 3 years old! Britains Zoo I have collected since I was around eight years old. Phew! How time has past! Now as an "elderly" guy I am still playing with them! Laughing

Hello everyone... I heard that some of you have the Britains gaur bull... I have the Mojo gaur but I like more the Britains gaur. I was checking on ebay, and found it! But before I want that someone could resolve this question:

Does this gaur contains lead in paint?

No lead :)

Andreas is right! Britains started their production of animal figures in hollowcast lead, so when you read about lead being dangerous to children, it is about the material that older figures were made. Some of these molds were used to the later range in plastic, some were discontinued and some were released only in plastic material. As far as I know the gaur only exists in plastic so no lead in painting or sculpt. By hte way, I also love absolutely the Britains figure but I think the Mojo deserves an equal praise. It is basically irreproachable and one of the most remarkable figures of modern era. Very Happy

Thanks for the pics! I bought my Britains' Gaur in 1984 at a specialty toy store. Britian's just hold a dear place in my heart because they were the first animal toy line I had as a kid (Recollected and replaced them in the 80's).

Hi baltimore zoo

You are welcome and I am in the same process as all my childhood collection was given away in 1980 and I am recollecting too.

Chris,
Yeah, mine were lost in our move to the west coast. So i was fortunate to recollect most of the zoo and farm at the specialty toy store and now on line thanks to ebay!
I just live the fact they're in relative proportion so when displayed together they look good!
Hope you get all the ones you want!
Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays!

Hi baltimore zoo

This is why I like Britains Zoo and Farm figures everything is in 1:32nd scale and therefore in correct proportion to each other.

I have most of the zoo animals and just need three more models to complete the set. These are the second version of the bison which was issued in 1980, the young crocodile number 1326 and the "very" young crocodile 1327 with open mouth. I have the latter but this is the version as issued in the MiniSet and has the hole in the belly.

How is your collection progressing?
