PostSubject: 1:48 scale Proboscidean (elephant) models   Tue Mar 19, 2013 2:26 am

I recently obtained some very well sculpted proboscidean models from a new company called Eofauna. In my opinion these are the most anatomically correct elephant models ever released. They are 1:48 scale, come with a base and are packed in a collector foam lined box. The models are expensive but are high quality replicas.

All three living elephant species are represented including an African Forest elephant...and all to scale with each other.
The set also includes a mastodon, deinotherium and mammoth.

Yes the sculptor makes a 3D model as a guide to work out proportions, pose etc but then he hand sculpts the models in sculpey, the traditional way.
Then they are moulded, cast in resin then hand painted.

These sculptures are very realistic! Those are elephants that look like elephants. Great also to see them in scale. Very interesting to see how they look next to other species. Very Happy
It is not hard to live without them as long as they are high priced. Hard is to live with these almost pathetic elephants from major brands. As elephants are commercially very important and always present in current ranges, I expect that in future releases, they can be half the quality of these ones. You can feel very proud of owning them. They are superb. elephant Very Happy

They are all absolutely gorgeous sculptures.
And the paintjob is just as amazing.
And I totally love those beautiful black stands they all have.
It makes them look so good together.

Wow!

Harriet, widukind, SUSANNE, skysthelimit, stef1000, scot(t), Ana: thank you all for your comments

Kikimalou: Thanks for posting the site link

Roger: I agree with you also, I was not happy with the current models from other brands so I decided to invest in these models sine I only collect elephants and have a very critical eye when purchasing them.

Bloodrayne: Yes I think the glossy black stands add a lot to the look of the models.

Pege: thank you for your compliments

I agree with all of you that the prices are very high for such small models though the quality is outstanding. From what I found out there is only one sculptor who makes the models, then moulds them himself and then his friend paints them. This is a small scale production so unfortunately they can't mass produce the items and have lower prices. Hopefully the prices will be lower int he future.

Wonderful models. Not the right scale and realy high (but adequat) prices, but wonderful.

If my wife wouldn't kill me immediately, I would buy the whole collection. Fantastic.

I am totally speechless - never seen anything like it in my life (in terms of ready to buy models).

Can you please take a photo of the Indian and African Elephant models alongside some Schleich animals such as the Giraffe and Zebra and an existing elephant so we can see the differences in size? I am useless with nubmer and so 1:48 doesnt mean much to me.

Secondly are all the models fixed to the base or removeable?

thanks

Melekh:Yes good points, they remind me of nicely sculpted pieces you would find at the natural history museum....though I do wish they were a bit larger.

Numaan, Sergey: I don't have giraffe or zebras but here is a picture of the Eofauna models next to some Schleich elephants. They are significantly smaller but far superior in sculpting, this is apparent when you compare the models side by side. The Schleich African in particular has a lot of anatomical errors in the sculpting.

The models originally have metal rods stuck into two feet and are glued down. I specifically asked that my whole set not be glued to the base so I can take them off if I desire.

Hi there

thanks for posting the photos - the models really are far smaller than what I thought it was going to be - I didnt realise they would be smaller than the schleich models so a little disappointing for me in terms of size however I think the sculpts are absolutely stunning - the best I have ever come across and I am indeed very envious that you have these in your collection.

You say that you asked for the models not to be glued to the stand - does this mean the two rods stick out of the stand and remain there? Are there two holes in two of the models feet?

I have seen on the website that they sell a larger scale version too for museums - I wonder what the size of that would be but regardless fantastic models and congratulations :-)

Out of the four feet two have holes drilled in the bottom, there are also two holes drilled in the base to align. There are two brass wire pegs which fit into the foot and base holes so the model stays on the base.
All the pieces are separate, so the rods are not glued to the base or stick out they can be taken away if you want. They may even be able to provide models which haven't had the holes drilled in the feet yet but I'm not sure.

As far as I know they haven't produced any 1:20 scale models yet, though I'm told they are planning to make other species that are not elephants. I think those will be in 1:48 scale as well.

Hello everyone, these models made me think of a Taiwanese sculptor, his name is Mr.suchus....I'm not sure if he is the designer of Eofauna or not? scratch ? there are some photos from his Flickr and blog, I didn't buy he artworks......

This Asian elephant is "Lin Wang", he served with the Chinese Expeditionary Force during the Second Sino-Japanese War (1937–1945) and later relocated to Taiwan with the Kuomintang forces. he is not only one of the most famous and popular animal in Taiwan, but also the longest-living, he died at the age of 86.

I was told by Eofauna that they are thinking of other groups of animals besides proboscideans for their future products.

Yes, these models are all sculpted by the talented Mr.Suchus from Taiwan. The forest elephant is the same as on his Flickr page but the other elephants were all sculpted new for Eofauna I believe.

I don't think the major brands are capable of this unfortunately as has been shown by the quality of elephant figures they consistently release. I hope I'm proven wrong though in the future.

I see so many proportional/anatomical errors which suggests the sculptor didn't even look at a real elephant when the model was being made. A lot of times you will see hybrid characteristics as well, mixing Asian and African traits to make some generic creature that lacks any true resemblance of the real animal.

I was told by Eofauna that they are thinking of other groups of animals besides proboscideans for their future products.

Very realistic models-unfortunately, I can't find the Prices for them-so how are they ?

Of course theyc an#T be chap-teh yhave to do the 3D model, tah they have to do the 3d copy and they have to paint them by Hand..If you wnat a realstic anmal Figurine, you have a higher Price than for animal fifures for the mass market...

Also, the models are not 3d prints but are hand sculpted from clay first then cast in resin. Hope this helps.
