Profile: G1 Arabian Stallion #495601

Sears Special Run
#495601 "Stablemate Assortment II"
1990


This buckskin G1 Arabian Stallion is the first non-regular run colour of this mold released in a Sears set. The set of the previous year featured this mold in its regular run steel grey. My model is rather flat in colour, but I have seen some with quite nice shading.

Like many Breyer colours, this buckskin had some wiggle room for creative interpretation. As Arabians do not come in buckskin, you would have to make him some sort of cross breed, or you could rather easily make a case for him being a purebred Arabian in a sandy bay with sun-faded black points.
