Pipes in sets 4105 and 7505
« on: July 26, 2015, 02:05:51 »
Hello everybody,

I just found a French site where three colors for pipes are shown. I don’t know if the far left pipes have yellowed a little bit or they are really in a variation of gray.


 
I was not sure the brown pipes really existed until I saw the photo above. I always saw in ebay sets 4105 with gray pipes (Even the "Datenbank" at Klickywelt)

I have set 4105 with light gray pipes but we know the box shows brown ones. My set was pre-owned, that means the seller put add-on 7505 in the original box?

Hmmm..very good question. I've seen slight variances in colors such as the Western Cavalry showing the sword to be shiny on the box when the actual contents were a dull grey. I think this might have happened here.  ??? Do the inside of the pipes have a different color than the outside? If so, they are probably discolored.

This was such a great addition to the train theme. It has so many great uses beyond a pipe wagon. Sure wish geobra would slowly rerelease them all as they did with the red liquid wagon.
If you hear the sound of the bell which will tell you that Grigori has been killed, if it was your relations who have wrought my death, then no one in the family will remain alive. They will be killed by the Russian people. :prays:

Thanks, but what about the two versions in gray? No doubt about pipes in brown were released in early versions from 1980 and gray ones in add-on 7505 later. The real question is whether a different gray tone was released in late versions of 4105…

I don't think there are two different tones of gray on the picture. The first wagon catches the light, the second is a little more away from the lightsource. If the light is from a normal lamp, the light is a bit yellow, and that will give on a photographic picture the impression of another color of gray.

It is not me who says that, check the original post and other photos of the owner (page 393):

Than it must be discoloration due to exposure to the sun. A problem I also have with older Playmobil wagons, specially when they did run outside the house.

There were only 2 colors of pipes:
grey (the »weathered« version is no extra color, it's yellowed by the sun) and brown.
