I think , the details are great... maybe the texture is a bit too strong, but it`s better like that, then without :) The paint work is also very good..

here you can see the mark :

Very nice figurine, Kosta! It almost looks like a polystone statue. Congratulations!

Very interesting. Considering what is average in Chinese based companies, this elephant is far better than the most part of them. I also think it is nicer than many elephants from major brands. A brand to follow for sure. :)
Maybe we should change the name of this topic? scratch

That`s a good idea I think :)

Nice small elephant Very Happy The texture is a bit too rough for my taste but I like a lot the front pic, very photogenic!

I think we should split the topic and open a walkaround Hongshao elephant topic Wink

Yeah, the texture is a bit too rough for me too, but on real doesn`t look bad :)
That`s also a nice idea :)

I understand, sometimes pics are very hard for models.

Yes, you're right, this is a great walk around and deserves its own topic... so work is done. Very Happy

Kosta, thanks for the pictures, they look much better than the catalogue images.
The colour is very good and the overall proportions aren't bad, the ears are a bit too large.
I might buy his figure and customize it, could you please share the link where you purchased it?

Thanks.

Thank you for your comment :)
I bought the model from Aliexpress. Many sellers have these models there,
but I chose this one : [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] ,
becouse was cheaper, even with shipping $1.47.
There is also another seller, from who I bought the hyena for example and his shipping is free.

But his elephant is more expensive...

Hi Sauroid,
yes, I think if Hongshao continue making models, they can be better and better :)
You can see some of them [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] together with major brands models Wink
