Thanks for the comments Andreas, and Julie.
Roger: Yes being hollow saves a lot of weight, it was so much easier to put this model together due to being lighter. The other large models I have are solid and the added weight is difficult to handle when gluing on parts or painting.
Anna: I found out about the brand through Facebook, they mainly do dinosaurs. The only present day animals they made were a 1:32 black rhino and this larger elephant.
Susanne: Thanks, I also like it now with the longer trunk.
