I'm Sander and I'm following this forum for a very long time now. I did not really react to anything but I read a lot. I really love this forum as it is one of the zen moments I have during the day while checking the new reactions and topics.
Since a year I'm really in love with the masse figuren by elastolin, but mainly with Lineol. I adore the strong poses and fabulous details where Schleich can really learn from with the direction it is taking right now
I'm a proud owner of a few lineol figures myself and was looking at the german ebay (as more can be found here than on the Dutch one) for new offers when I found this:[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
My German is okay, but not that good to fully understand the story that the seller posted. As far as I know, the collection of the seller was damaged during a fire and he is selling the figures at a extremely low cost (30 euros for many figures) so that other collectors can buy them and restore them to their former glory.
I thought that some of you might be interested in these as it would be a shame if this goes unnoticed and the precious figures perish.
Hopefully one of more of you can make a restore project and help these poor burned figures
Have a great evening!
