Belgian, Factory Unpainted - Factory Escapee
It has always been hard to acquire a factory unpainted model, as Breyer rarely let them escape intentionally. When they did "escape," it was sometimes because something went wrong in production, so they were culled before being painted.
When you can get one, they make great conversation pieces and are pretty in their own right. They often have an almost semi-gloss shine to the plastic, and with no paint to hide them, you can see all the mold's details.
This fellow is Factory unpainted model with some lightly rough areas in his plastic and duller areas where they began to sand his seams before he "escaped." He is the color of fresh cream and is a really neat part of Breyer history. He has vent holes in BOTH nostrils... Which could be why he was allowed to escape unpainted. What a neat guy!
