California Condor (Safari Ltd. - Wings of the World)
« on: January 16, 2013, 09:28:42 AM »
Walk-around of the Safari Ltd. Wings of the World California Condor, Gymnogyps californianus (Shaw, 1797). Length is 57 mm, wing span 148 mm, scale approx. 1:17 - 1:23 (but probably not over 1:20.5 based on wing span). Human figures are approx. 1:20 and 1:22.5 scale, respectively.
Here is the link to the figure at Safari Ltd.: http://safariltd.shptron.com/p/wings-of-the-world-birds-california-condor

I always thought this figure looked interesting but I could never judge whether I liked it or not because the catalogue photos weren't detailed enough :) Your photos helped remedy that ;)
Vultures and condors are awesome as well :)

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

Thanks, Jetoar & Tyrantqueen! :) Well, the downside is of course that the figure would really need a proper base. Just like those pterosaur figures.

I think the same that you friend. Condors and vultures are amazing birds. I remember the first time that I saw a griffon vulture  ^-^

Thanks, Varanus! :) Although I have to say, I like the Kaiyodo Red Data Animals version a little more... but that one's of course harder to get. :-\
