I've started a new sculpture of a 1:22 scale African bush elephant cow.  The model is scaled at 9ft tall at the shoulder (12.5cm), compared with my forest elephant which is 6ft.

Fabulous work Andrew, I'm looking forward to more sculpting updates on this model!

Will you make a mould from this model?  I know we keep asking, don't mean to pressure you!  But your work is very desirable.  I've always wanted to add a 1:22 scale elephant to my collection.

It would be a dream to see a 1:22 scale elephant walking around in my South African diorama, Andrew this new project is so wonderful!

Thanks to everyone for all the comments.

In regards to those asking about making copies of this model I have put a poll at the top of this page for voting to see how much interest there is for making a mould. 
I'd like to know if there is enough demand for this model that would make it practical for me to mould it.

Please let me know if you're interested! thanks

Rough update images

The finished model will have the same level of details and texture as my previously sculpted African forest elephant model.

I answered yes to both, I would be happy with either a completed copy or a kit I put together myself.  Just to have a 1:22 scale elephant would be such a fantastic figure I would do whatever was needed to make it easier for you to decide to make the copies.  Also the price of a kit may be less if you don't have to spend as much time on assembly and painting so the cost difference could allow a larger group to purchase a copy.

Hello Andrew,
what a great news!!!
of course I'm interested on it and i voted for the unpainted option because i supose such a big model will be expensive and it could be a way to make it cheaper

well, your paintjobs are fantastic and as i prefer asian animals and unusual species, i'd prefer to buy an asian elephant sculpt by you first, then before i'd buy this african cow, i'd take a forest elephant, but then, i's also take an unpainted copy,...Difficult i know, but i personally think moulding the forest elephant would be a better idea!

Thanks for the feedback everyone, I have decided that I will be making a mould of this elephant.  I plan to offer two versions, one fully assembled/painted and one cheaper non-assembled kit.
Once I finish sculpting pricing will follow after I work out the details of materials, shipping etc.

Here are some updates to the model, this time I've taken moulding into consideration and made the ears and tusks separate like the old Britains elephants, the seams will be puttied for the final models. 
If this goes well I plan on making a 1:22 Indian elephant cow next.
