Common Minke Whale (Maia & Borges).
« on: December 23, 2014, 06:35:48 PM »
Hello friends, this is the figure of Common Minke Whale (Balaenoptera acutorostrata) Lacepede, 1804 of Maia & Borges. Total lenght is 250 mm. It is the smallest member of the rorquals and the second smallest species of baleen whale. Although first ignored by whalers due to its small size and low oil yield, it began to be exploited by various countries beginning in the early 20th century.









Maia & Borges is a portuguese brand whose that done the earliest sea life figures of Schleich. It has produced some figures of animals with a really nice quality. This is one of the best examples of this. Sculpt, colors and details are really awesome. I Think that it is beautiful replica of this specie. I bouhgt this figure the last saturday in a book shop  ^-^.

So here's an opportunity for all those who haven't got the brilliant Schleich "Seetiere 1:32" Minke Whale! :) Really seems to be a re-release of the same sculpt, only the paint work is a little different.
