Welcome to The Big Five model project!
This project features animal busts of the African Big Five: Elephant, Rhinoceros, Cape Buffalo, Lion, and Leopard.
This would not be a project unless a few other models were added too. Extra models include the textured Africa map, using real topographical data simulating the continent's landscape, a Safari scene that can be used as a backdrop for the African themed frame, or if you prefer, design your own using the 2 borders to create a personalized frame.
Let's not forget the rock cluster, this can help you fill in areas or use it to create a textured background for the frame (this technique is used in the example to the left).
D&M model projects usually contain 1 prebuilt layout, however, for this special project, 2 Assembled Layouts are included. These layouts feature all the Big Five, either arranged on the map of Africa or on the Safari scene with an area for your customized VCarving text too.
Note: Some of the models in this project are available in other Design and Make Projects or as single models sold in the Design and Make Store. This project will not be prorated based on any previous purchases if you find that you already own models that are included in this project.
