Great paintjob on that figure, Peter, it looks like you're looking at Gary Cooper himself in the film. :drool:

I think this is the same figure that also appears in the Revell Cowboys set, although this one is in 1/72 scale (first from the right in this PSR photo):

Revell had some more figures scaled down from ELASTOLIN in their sets. That's correct.

Coool! I always liked the Elastolin-Series though I haven´t a single figure of it and the company which produced it (Hausser or later Preiser) isn´t very far from where I live. 1/32 toy soldiers (or even bigger) are always a pleasure to see.....childhood memories.

Thank you all for the kind words! :oops:

@Santi: Revell downsized more figures of Elastolin:

@Thomas: they were to expensive for my wallet when I was young boy! ;-)

@Paul: I know "Gunsmoke" and Matt Dillion, but this was the only figure I had in this pose. But you are right it would have been possible! :-D
