After making the yellow Breyer boxes in miniature, I knew I wanted to make a second set using images from the vintage picture boxes. I’m not a vintage collector and don’t know much about these at all, but as a miniature-addict of sorts I wanted to include them in my expanding mini-Breyer collection.

I have none of these boxes in my collection so photos were generously shared with me by Faracat and aneedforfun over on Blab – thanks again for your pictures!!

Like the yellow boxes these come in two sizes – micro/mini whinny and H0/1:87 scale. The micro ones were made with mini whinnies in mind, so they’re quite large in 1:9 scale. Personally I think they would be fun to store small tack and props in… or maybe something else, I’m sure you guys could come up with something more creative. ^_^

The H0 ones are significantly smaller…

… but they fit in a 1:9 scale world much better. 🙂

Assembly is a lot easier than the yellow boxes, as these are literally plain box tops & bottoms with no pesky windows to cut out. I put mine together with a glue stick and (as always) scored them before folding to get a nice shape.

I didn’t make every single box I had a photo of – experience has taught me that while it’s fun to have lots and lots of variety, putting together dozens of printable minis is a lot more work than you would think. (or maybe that’s just me… I have had so little energy lately, sorry) Anyway, I chose six favorites that were the most editable and this was the end result.

My favorites have to be the white boxes. (but I have such a soft spot for the FAS too!)

Fantasia Del C and Gozosa were added to the herd a few months ago… they were my favorites of the 2017 releases (RR horses, anyway…) so I’m glad I got to add them to my overcrowded bookshelf.

In hindsight, I probably should have photographed Fantasia on a black background.

She is a bright white in person – here she is compared to Susecion:

Yay! A lot of collectors were worried she would be shaded bare plastic like some previous releases, so I’m happy to see that this isn’t the case.

One thing that does disappoint me is her forelock:

Ugh! I was so hoping that she would be tack friendly but that extra bit of sculpted hair is going to be a huge pain to work around. :/ It’s still a nice mold though… and I still love the fact that I can own plastic Eberl horses. 😀

The foal is my favorite of the two I think…

His eyes are painted a bit better than the mare’s so I’m thinking I might touch her’s up some.

Overall they’re a nice pair, and I really do love mare & foal sets. ❤
