Bottlenose Dolphin (Kaiyodo - Aquatales Polyresin)
« on: December 31, 2014, 03:28:22 PM »
Does the world need yet another Bottlenose Dolphin figure? Well, judge for yourselves but if it is so detailed it even has ears... maybe yes? So here is a walk-around of the Kaiyodo Aquatales Polyresin Series 1 No. 001 (Common) Bottlenose Dolphin, Tursiops truncatus (Montagu, 1821). Total length from tip of rostrum to notch in the fluke is 119 mm so the scale is between approx. 1:19 and 1:32. The model has a faint shadowing which is not easy to capture on a photo - it is not just plain grey. The subtle sculpt details are amazing: This figure even has ears, something I've never seen in a cetacean figure before. The human figure (scuba diver from Safari Ltd Coral Reef Toob) is approx. 1:32 - 1:35 scale. The Common Bottlenose Dolphin as a species itself needs no introduction being the most popular delphinid species next to the Orca. The world wide population is estimated to be 600,000 individuals or more and IUCN lists it as "Least Concern".
