PostSubject: The 1:50 Scale Animal topic   Thu Mar 28, 2013 3:40 pm

Hi Folks,

I need everybodys Help!

I've got recently a model of an old animal house from a german zoo, which some poeple have constructed for me, but unfortunately, they are only good in making buildings, but not animal or human figures.

But of course I want also the inhabitants of that building, but as you know, all the mayor brands do not make animals in such a small scale, whcih isn't easy, I guess, especially not the speices I need for that house.

So the only way to get them is to find somebody, who can make them for me, for payment, of course. So if anybody here  has an idea, who can do these figures for me, please let me know !

So here are the list with the speices, which i need for my house model, all please in the same scale of 1.50 :

Red Kangaroo
Tree Kangaroo(Matschies,Doria,-and Goodfellow )
Benett wallaby
Brushtailed Rock Wallaby

Indian Crested porcupine

Mountain Tapir
Red River Hog
Warthog
Babirusa

Yellow backed duiker
Zebraduiker
Blackduiker
Bay Duiker

Klippspringer
Kirk Dik-Dik

Aardvark
Aardwolf
Giant Anteater

Secretary bird

Of course I would see als o a few zoo vistors and a zookeeper.

So any Idea, where I could find somebody who can do that for me ?

Thank you in advance for any advice,

Bongo.

1:50 is very very small, even elephant in this scale would be quite tiny... elephant
Human figure would have 3.4cm so just think how small would be secretary bird or any wallaby Shocked Or klipspringer? Only 1cm in shoulders? Shocked Shocked
I would love to see pictures of the building too. Very Happy

I would wish to find all your species as figurine- and i think at the moment no chance for the most of this animals. And also in scale 1:50 scratch scratch scratch scratch scratch

The only i know is a Kaiyodo Zoorasia Tree Kangaroo in a small size, but i dont know if the scale is 1:50. I will post a pic in compare with Schleich

some of the Safari TOOB figures may be 1:50 scale. I know that there are several CollectA and Safari Dinosaurs that are 1:50. I haven't scaled most of the Safari TOOB figures, but perhaps their North American Wildlife TOOB, Wild Animals TOOB, etc. have some. As far as the species requested, Good Luck Razz

Perhaps you can find something for model railways.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] is 1:45, which may be suitable ?

Hi Folks,

thank you all for your suggestions.

I need te same scale 1:50 of the house model, otherwise, because it would look very strange, if the the animals woulnd't be in the same scale, but no railway model sytem is using this scale.

The only option I have is to find someone who has enough abilities, to make them, especially all these rare species. The tapirs are not too mal ein that scale, and I think, even the duikers can be made in that size, even when the ycan't be very detailed.

I have the Kaiyoddo Tree Kangaroo, indeed, it could be the size I need....

But I have a much better idea now, its more a hope than an idea, there is now the phantastic d copy techinque, and some companies in germany offer statueue sof your own face via the internet, so after easter, I will give them a phonecall and ask, if it is possible to make also animal figures in the scale.1:50.Or bigger-so maybe eI have found a way to get hundreds, hundres of ANETELOPE Species ? Very Happy Schleich,Collecta and Mojo-these was yesterday,Ha,Ha. Laughing

I'm very curious and I hope, easter will move as soon as possible.....

PS:

I will upload pics of the House model as soon as I have the inhabitants of it-otherwise, you would see only pictures of an empty house with outdoor exhibts only with plants, sand, rocks and trees, with animals in it and visitors around it-the house would come to live !

I think that PlayVisions Zebra Duiker is 1:18 scale. I don't have my figure or database with me, but I think I have it listed as 1:18. Just for reference on just how small 1:50 would be: almost 3x's smaller than the PlayVisions figure. So roughly the same siz as your average ball of lint. :)

I think that all those species are hard to find in any scale....

Just a suggestion, because I don't know anything about them, but can 3D printers be programmed to produced different scale copies of an original scanned object?

So if you can find any of the species (or near enough for a model) in the larger scale ranges, scan it and programme the 3D printer to make a small one.

Presumably you'd need to find a person/company with a 3D printer/printing service near where you live to ask if this is possible.

If this worked, then you'd just have to paint them yourself.

Hi Bongo

Arttista are an American company specialising in railway figures in American ‘O’ Gauge which is 1:48th scale:

Animal figures are limited but they may have something that fits in your zoo.

Preiser make small railway scale wild animals but more common ones. I think these may be useful and can be easily ordered online. Some examples can be seen below:

Hi Numaan

In the first three links the scale of the animals is 1:87th almost half the size of 1:50th scale.

The last link does show 1:48th scale animals as this is the scale for American ‘O’ Gauge railways and this are the right scale that Bongo require.
