This mold has the  round "Breyer Molding Co." stamp. Models released after mid to late 1979 also have the "B" stamp, and the model has never had the "U.S.A." stamp. Some Belgian models may vary by as much as a quarter of an inch from others of the same mold. The cause for this is not entirely known, but it likely is caused during the production process at Breyer and occurs in several other molds. The Belgian was sculpted by Chris Hess and is Breyer mold #92.

A symbol means that I don't yet have a picture of that model. If you can help, please see the Help Wanted section. Clicking on any photo below will open a larger version of that picture.
