Man of TIN Advent Calendar Day 24 – Plastic Nativity Figures


Christmas is almost here!

Here is a white plastic Nativity set of 54mm figures and animals (by a German maker?) that I was given by a relative. Some of the white plastic is brittle and the halos on Mary and Joseph had broken.

These did not take paint well. I used Acrylic and these are almost finished. A little work on faces is still required.

It looks like the Shepherd crook has broken? Worth repairing.

Three Wise Men and their gifts
The Holy Family – Mary is unfortunately missing a hand, due no doubt to brittle ageing plastic.

Made in Germany? Hugh at Small Scale World has a post about these figures
A charming repaired plastic camel, much like some of the older hollow cast camels.
