Right Whale (AAA)

Walk-around of the AAA (North Atlantic?) Right Whale, Eubalaena cf. glacialis (Müller, 1776). Despite its wrong colouration with a greenish gray back and a white underside the sculpt is actually quite good (the Maia & Borges 2012 Right Whale is better, though). Length is approx. 208 mm, scale approx. 1:53 - 1:89. Human figure is 1:72 scale. The torsion in the tail looks a little strange to me.

Thanks, Jetoar! :) It would be interesting to see your AAA Right Whale, too. Does it match the real animal closer in colouration?

I think that yes because he is not dark green, he is dark grey and his protuberances are oranged yellow and the color of his mouth is red and his beard are yellow. I am not at home, but I remember the colors, because he is the firts figure of AAA of my collection  ^-^.

The position of the tail almost looks painful!  A nicely detailed figure though. :)

This is a beautiful figure that looks like it came straight out of the 1800s

Thanks, CetaceanFan. :) Yes, it looks a bit like on an old painting.
