Can anyone recommend any accurate sei whale figures? If not, how about a similar species that could be easily modified?

None that I'm aware of... but the smallish (146 mm) Maia & Borges Blue Whale has a narrow, v-shaped rostrum instead of the rather u-shaped typical for B. musculus:


With a modification of the fin and a repaint this could be turned into a decent 1/100ish Sei Whale quite easily, I've already thought about modifying mine into one. :) Of course, the number of gular furrows does not match (neither for a Blue nor for a Sei Whale) but this is almost never the case for rorqual figures.

Safari Ltd has a Sei whale coming out. A little on the small side though.

I would definitely recommend the 2018 Safari Ltd Sei Whale.  It scales to about 1:110 or so, and I think it's pretty accurate.  I haven't spent a lot of time examining the figure and comparing it to literature, but I'd say it's pretty accurate
