Every animal and bird is now pictured which gives a much better idea of what the set contains. This is a very large set both in terms of numbers of animals and their size. The set contains the following.Remarkably there is a pair of unicorns which I have only ever seen once before. The 6 figures are large (13 cms 5.25 inches tall) and much more detailed than is usually found in these sets. The animals and birds are in remarkably good condition with bright non flaking paint and when acquired there was very little damage to legs, ears, horns etc. Where there was a broken leg it has been repaired.
The very large Ark (70 cms, 28 inches long and 40 cms, 16 inches tall) is severely smoke damaged. The one side pictured is saveable the other is severely blackened. I have used up the 12 allocated pictures but have more of the ark if required.
