Profile: G1 Seabiscuit #495601

Sears Special Run Gift Set
#495601 Stablemate Assortment II
1990



Breyer certainly seemed to embrace the day-glo fad of the late 80s. This palomino G1 Seabiscuit could be used as a light source just as he is. This lemon colour was not uncommon for this time period, though earlier and later palomino runs were usually more realistic.

Palomino Stablemates were usually palomino in name only as the mane and tail were most often body coloured due to over-spray rather than white. The tail on my model is almost fully white, though only the tips of the mane have escaped the airbrush.
