Quote from: postsaurischian on May 05, 2016, 09:05:01 PM Absolutely awesome!! It would be a strong candidate for model of the year if it hadn't already been released years ago.Yes, the shipping costs are horrible and would have been the only reason not to get this Elephant figure milestone, ... but I had to anyway.What can I say? I'm more than happy that I did and this walk around shows very well why .Congrats Andre! At the moment I'm displaying it with the Vanishing Wild baby. Would you say it is far too small for that?It could be a new born .... o.k., the ears for example would be too big then ... argh, I want them to be together.

Quote from: brontodocus on May 06, 2016, 09:27:10 AMThe Vanishing Wild calf isn't that small at 92 mm shoulder height. So at 1:11 to 1:15 scale it would represent an individual approx. 1.0 - 1.4 m tall at the withers, taller than a newborn.

The Safari Ltd Wildlife Wonders Hippopotamus and White Rhino also fall into the 1:15 range.
Quote from: Jetdin on November 11, 2016, 03:19:11 PMso for animal figures, is the common scale 1:15-1:20?
