Interesting question !

I suspect they are not eager to make the formulas public.
We know how enormously difficult it is to develop material that

- is so soft that it doesn`t break, but still not so soft that it seems "cheap"
- keeps the shape enven in hot environment
- doesn`t get hard ( breaks) at low temparature and give sharp edges IF it breaks.
- will allow the paint to stay, also when handeled very roughly
- 100 % non-toxic ( no Phalates etc)
- cheap, easy to work with ...I am sure there are more factors. scratch

Welcome! cheers cheers cheers
I only know that Razz
materials, some are from a rare ruber, and anothers good plastic.
if the model have a lot of details make them but with a ruber plastic.
if the model is a normal horse make them with a good plastic. :)
