Magpie Model Horses are polystyrene models which are manufactured in two hollow sections. These plastic shells are created though the injection molding process; hot, liquid plastic is injected under pressure into heavy steel molds. The shell halves are assembled, painted, and given hair manes and tails. Production, assembly, and painting all takes place here in the UK.
Early models and Magpie regular runs were of unpainted, coloured plastic, while later issues and special runs were painted. They are approximately 1/16th to small 1/12th scale which means they will work well with many doll house accessories.
