Now that i saw that little bull again, it reminded me of two bulls, that came with a Matchbox model, but in white of course.
Yes they are probably the same make, I have two of those bulls, one is black and the other brown, the latter I've painted.
The rest are Preiser, my dad bought them for me as they are quite expensive, as a surprise. I haven't painted them all yet, he bought a box full of farm animals, goats, pigs, sheep, horses and cows with calves. Along with wagons and traps/carts and a few people too.
One of the farm animals I love, it's the bull, he's so realistic and detailed for such a small figurine.

What a wonderful farm model!!!! It looks like it would be a great place to live if we could. I think I have a whole group of Matchbox horses from when I was I kid. They look like a lot like Willy's bulls. I guess it is time to look in the old boxes

Yes, i know these little white horse Remrock, they belonged to this horse-truck, which i had too when i was young.
I probably wishes for everything whic had anything to do with animals in those days from my parents.
i lost the truck in all of those years, and i don't have the horses too anymore, but i will find them again some day, at the best with this same truck. Very Happy

Wonderful windmill! I hope Willy likes it. He should be the expert! About two hours from my house they have a town known as Holland, Michigan. It has the only windmill in the U.S. that originally came from Holland. The original immigrants came from Holland in the 1700's. They have a very large Tulip Festival in May that draws up to one half million people over two weeks. They also have a wooden shoe factory and a Pottery factory that makes Dutch pottery. Its not the original but the next best thing.

Oh Harriet, it all looks absolutely wonderful! You do such an excellent job on those tiny figures, the old man and girl! You can easily tell that the one dog is meant to be a German Sheperd. WOW!

Do you have much more to do?

Thank you Larry. The Windmill you were talking about sounds really nice and the pottery factory. Must be a great place to visit.

Thanks Susanne and Sue!! Yes, I have lots of models to paint still, goats and kids, sheep (they are all really beautifully sculpted models, considering how tiny they are) more horses, pigs, piglets, people, carts and of course the cattle pictured. I will enjoy painting them one day Rolling Eyes

Amazing. We call this type of windmills Dutch windmills. Because it was built by immigrants from the Netherlands. Personally, I like your never seen. I've seen have simpler shapes. We're like the grandfather of the shepherds. I wonder how it will look a whole. Good luck, and perseverance in making this diorama.

Thank you! sunny
Thanks for the info too Zbyszek, yes it does look Dutch. They're Windmills in England that look like this, they probably copied the Dutch ones.
This one below looks like my one, it was or still is in Kent
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
It's amazing the whole top part of the windmill turns, as you can see in the picture the stairs are off the ground. Mine does it too. Must have been great to watch it.

They are really nicely made, but if you don`t look closely maybe one could miss how much detail there is.
What fantastic luck - or talent - that you found them !!!!
You are just the person to bring them almost alive cheers

That girl in riding outfit is amazing Shocked

I think i miss a big answer here, which i did put here yesterday, hhhmmmm Rolling Eyes Shocked scratch

Anyway, a lot of those very small HO figurines are made by Preiser, and are copies of the much earlier Hausser-Elastolin models from the 1970's and 1980's...

Thanks Willy. The unpainted animals and humans were bought as a box set from the Preiser's site, yes. Very Happy
But the Bulls, the black one and the one I painted, as well as the horse grazing (Pinto, another I painted) and the white one trotting, have been in the family for years, are these ones Hausser-elastolin too or matchbox? I thought because you said white horses went with that little horsebox you have, that the little horses I had might have belonged to that set.

I can't see your pics anymore at the moment, i don't know why they are vanished from all of your treads Harriet... Rolling Eyes Shocked
But i remember the white trotting horse, it came from that little Matchbox horse-truck i showed you before here, there were 2 in it actually, and the same for the white bulls.

Oh you know what, I've just realized why the pictures vanished, I emptied my folder on the photo upload site and when you do that it deletes them from the forum too. That means I have to reload all my pictures on the forum again Neutral

So, matchbox, I have a slightly bigger horse model too, it's in the same pose as the trotting white horse. I wonder where that came from.
