Default A BONGO is born!

My first attempt at a model of antelope, a Bongo in 1:20 scale.
See yourself and I hope you enjoy it:

Fantastic, what a beautiful species and sculpture. That is an impressive sculpture. Could you tell me the length and height? I am wondering what the scale is, I see it next to the Schleich animals, but they are not to standard scale so it is hard to tell.

So the Bongo model has a head-body length of 10.5 cm (without tail) and shoulder height of 6 cm, with a Bongo in life-size this is in about a scale of 1:20.
