Here is my latest replica, a 1:16 scale bull African elephant.  Sculpted on the computer, 3D printed then painted with acrylics (brush and airbrush).
I based this model on a 45 year old Kenyan elephant named Satao who was poached for his ivory in 2014.


I have this model for sale (in 1:22 scale) for those interested:

You've made a great tribute to Satao with this wonderful model. Poor elephant, poor world, poor us!

While I looked again at these pics, I thought again about some 1:32 elephants from you drunken  Andrew, I know I insist a lot but I can't resist.  Wink

Thanks everyone for your comments.  This elephant died a slow painful death, rangers found his body with tusked hacked out and a poisoned arrow deep in his side.  He was not killed instantly and suffered greatly.

Christophe: I initially was thinking about releasing 1:32 scale figures but after experimenting I think I will stay with 1:22.  
When the models were made smaller the thin ears and tails proved to be problematic for Shapeways to easily handle (kept getting rejected as not printable).
