African Elephant
For all of you who thought that I only made cars! Actually, I can say with certainty that this is my first elephant ever.
About this creation
Detailed bodywork...right?
























Details: Everything opens! :) This is my first animal sculpture. His legs are very movable, his head can twist and his trunk goes up and down. His tail is a universal joint which is stuck on with putty—thus shattering my perfect record of using only qualified LEGO techniques. I'm sure some of you can understand. Notice the hinging plate above his hip; it pivots to allow for joint movement while still covering up the hole made by the joint.

Wow! He's great. You're forgiven for the putty, because this is gorgeous.

Neat! For a second, when you mentioned putty, I thought the elephant had to relieve himself. XD

Very good model! I know it's very hard to make a realistic looking human or an animal, but you did a good job.....And I forgive you for the putty ;-)

I second the comment below, all those joints add to the playability, and it looks like you nailed the shape. I especially like the picture where's it's picking up the log. (AWESOME) I can also agree with you when you say it's nice to break away from the usual cars every now and then. Thanks for the comments on my Colt! :)

I don't know if an elephant should be called cute... anyway, the last photo with this heart-shaped ears is truely heartrending! Great playability through all those hinges abd still a superbe resemblance . I like it a lot! Cheers, Jens
