As my first model shared at Britmodeller I've like to share my Tyrannosaurus Rex, from the Diorama Set of Tamiya, this are the only Tamiya dinosaurs kit that are anatomically correct to a point.
All the beast in this series of kits come this a diorama base, some tipe of tree or palmtree, rocks, another smaller dinosaur (a juvenil of the main dinosaur in some cases). Somewhere I read that the bases can be put together to make a large base with all the dinosaurs.
Now let's go to the T-Rex, Tamiya made this kit this the option to leave it with either an open moyth or a closed one, in a running position or a standing one. For stability's sake I chose the standing position but with an open mouth. The one thing the kit didn't allow was he position of the neck, that I heavily modified with an epoxic resin, moving the center of gravity to the fordward part of the kit, thankfully the standing position of the legs is firm and helped much to give a firm pose.
The palmtrees came form the kit, and a third one was provided by a Parasaurolophus kit, the bones also came from the kit, and the Velociraptor came from winning a bet to a friend.
Now let's see if photobucke is as dependable as usual:

I know what you mean by "Anatomically Correct", I made the older style Tamiya T-Rex a while back (pictures on forum somewhere), that one looks like a man in a rubber suit, similar to the sort you see in old japanese monster films.

pte1643, some months ago surfing the internet I found a finnish heavy metal band called Heavysaurus, it's target public is young children, they go out to stage drees up as "heavy metal dinosaurs"... at old Tamiya T-Rex would do just the trick to make the "lead vocals" for that band!!
