Zebras
« on: February 17, 2013, 04:10:54 PM »
I am looking to get a decent Zebra figure.  Does anyone have any recommendations?  It would be great if there are group photos showing zebras of different brands  ;)  So far I only have one little Britains zebra figure, and therefore want to get more  :)

The Kitan rolling zebra looks pretty cute :)

They came flying from far away, now I'm under their spell....

Thanks sauroid and skysthelimit for the photos.  It seems that both the Collecta and Schleich zebra are great figures, with the latter having an edge.  I'll go for it!

Every time I see those Kitan Club Zebras it drives me insane (because I don't have them, yet :'( ). Perfect figures! 8)

I have only three zebras and only one of them is a Grevy's Zebra (they are apparently rarely made):


Kaiyodo Red Data Animals Grevy's Zebra. With its shoulder height of 40 mm the scale would be between 1:32 and 1:40.

And here's the Safari Ltd. Wildlife Wonders Zebra... if you like them big:

I have the same feeling about Kitan Gnus, although I have them  ;)... Wonderful replicas

Thanks everybody for the contribution.  I got my Schleich Zebras today  ^-^  Also bought two Rhinos and a Hippo.  For the Rhino figures, I would blame OkapiBoy for his another thread, which is so seducive  ;)

Zebra update! :)

After I've built the Giraffe I wanted to assemble another Pinoart cardboard model. So I went for the Canon Creative Park / Pinoart Zebra by Katsuyuki Shiga. Like the Giraffe, it's a free download.






It's apparently a Grant's Zebra, Equus quagga boehmi. With a shoulder height of 153 mm the scale is approx. 1:8 - 1:9 so it's pretty big. :)

Turned out that of the roughly 100 cardboard models I've built so far this one is one of the best. It's not quite a beginners model (e.g. the free Grevy's Zebra by Yamaha is a lot easier to assemble) and required an estimated twelve hours or so to assemble but it's been a joy to complete and it's also been a little easier than the Giraffe. Note that I always paint the cutting edges to make them less obvious, here I used white acrylic paint and a black pigment pen (Pitt Artist Pen). For anybody interested, here's a link to the templates at Canon Creative Park.

Maybe I should open a thread for animal cardboard models somewhere in the future, not just for the birds. :)
