After buying the nice resting Elastolin horse I got some more so-called Elastolin animals off ebay. They are really disappointing. Tiny, not made of 'Masse' (composition) but out of a sort of rubbery plastic with bendy legs. Are they really Elastolin? I know the Preiser animals, but they are made of a hard plastic and are hollow. These are massive, but not too well made, for instance it's clear to see, where they fused both halves together. Are they really Elastolin?

I don`t know a lot about Elastolin, but the ones I have are not hollow scratch
Aren`t you thinking about Marx ?

The two largest zebras look very elastolin-ish to me, - they are wonderful cheers

They are really HAUSSER ELASTOLIN from the softplastic 54mm line.

HAUSSER made BIG Composition models until the 1960's.
Then all the brands began to use plastic material.
In the 1960's and 70's HAUSSER made two different lines, the 54mmm and 70mm in softplastic. The 54mm was made to fit with the other European markets like UK and France were the 1:32 scale (54mm) was the standart.
In the eighties, HAUSSER collapsed and PREISER bought the 70mm molds which are still used nowadays.

Thank you very much! Next time I'll ask you first, before buying expensive things on ebay that are not what they seem ... As they are too small for my collection, I'm gonna sell them off again. But thank you for your expert help! cheers

They do have more value then your bigger models, i wouldn't sell them if i were you... Cool
They belonged to my most precious models in my collection, and they still are today.
Christophe told the story already, so i can't add to much to that.
Only that thet scratch easily, and then the bare colour of the mould comes through which would be a shame for the classics! farao
