    Hi there,
    they do come up on eBay from time to time, but if you’re just looking for a 1/12 scale horse try looking at Breyer who do a few good horses in that scale. These too can often be found on eBay both new and second hand.
    hope this helps
    Nigel.

    Airfix also did a 1/12 scale showjumper - would look good on that!

    Hi Badger... you seem to have two threads going on this topic.

    Can't find any Lancers, but eBay has a couple of show jumpers at silly prices.

    Otherwise this guy has 'grown out' of his Breyer horses and has several for sale: https://www.ebay.co.uk/str/Dead-or-Alive-Motorcycles?rt=nc

    Dunno if they'll suit (sculpting looks a bit iffy)... but if not you can always build a motorbike (visit and you'll see what I mean) ;)

    PS: this one may suit Charles, what with his highfalutin divine right etc :LOL:

    Neil is right ...the Showjumpers go for silly prices as they are now considered “collectible”.
    The sculpting on the Breyer horses isn’t that bad.....I used one myself for a 1/12 conversion. Certainly comparable with the Airfix horse. Sure there are mould lines, makers marks etc to remove but nothing to difficult . They are also easily over painted.
    Could even use that unicorn if needs be.....don’t forget to remove the horn first!

    Thinking of those Van Dyke paintings, this one or this one look about right (£8 = £4 P&P).

    May be worth dropping a line to the vendor to check their height to make sure that they're horses not ponies?

    Just found this out... so be careful about the series/scale:
    There are several scales of Breyer horse models:
    • Traditional: 1:9 scale (adult models are approximately 11″ long × 9″ high) and is the most popular scale.
    • Classic: 1:12 scale (adult models are approximately 9″ long × 6″ high)
    • Ponies/Dapples/Pony Gals: 1:12 scale (adult models are approximately 9″ long × 6″ high) and are aimed at the youth market.
    • Paddock Pal/Little Bits: 1:24 scale (about 6″ long x 5″ high) - Now retired, but some products are found in craft kits.
    • Stablemates: 1:32 scale (adults are about 4″ long × 3″ high)
    • Mini Whinnies: 1:64 scale (adults are about 2″ long x 1″ high)
    As of 2008, the Ponies line has been replaced with a similar line titled "Pony Gals". The line differs from other Breyer products in that the models have brushable manes and tails and may have jointed heads, necks, and legs, and are marketed towards younger children.

    I've heard this described as perhaps the greatest example of a standing horse depicted in miniature. I concur.
