My second Dino project was a real 'biggie' the box was ginormous!  It was the Tamiya 1/35 Brachiosaurus Diorama: 

 

If you think that's big, wait till someone does a kit of Argentinosaurus. To sort of quote Roy Scheider in Jaws, Stix will be saying "We're gonna need a bigger house"!!

That aside, they all look very realistic. Acrylics?

Cheers John! - That would take a shed load of plastic and a very, very large box! :D They seem to keep digging up even bigger Dinos every year... Yes I used Humbrol acrylics all, of course, brush painted :smile:

I liked these when you were working on them but they look incredible in the photos with backdrops. Really naturalistic.

 

Top stuff!

These are great, I'm tempted myself to give them a go. I always seem to make a complete hash of decals, so maybe this the way to go.

I love these. Am so glad I decided to browse through a section I haven't been to before. Well done Mrs Plastix. Last time I made a model Dinosaur was back in the 70s. Takes me back

Cheers Will, borrowing Stix's boards really helps to give them an illusion of reality. :D

Thanks! I'm beginning to understand what you mean about decals, I'm having a go at building AFVs and so far the decals have proved to be the most frustrating, you spend ages getting them just right and then catch them and they've gone...:huh:

Been a while since I've been on here, thought I'd catch up on these as I enjoyed watching the WIPs. Your work continues to be amazing.

Cheers! you're far too kind! I'm really missing modelling the dinos, but have got involved with weird shaped AFVs for now... hope to get my T Rex diorama started sometime in Summer...:smile:

Hi Mrs P

 

Long time no speak - my dinos got put on the back burner after a house move which prompted me over to a number of Star Wars builds in the sci-fi section of the forum - hope all is good - keep those prehistoric masterpieces of your coming

 

Got myself my new man cave workshop all set up after the move over to Iver - a lovely snug man place with a telly and a heater and with a great woman on constant call out for T and biscuits  just 20 paces from the cave door.

 

Keep safe and model on - John

Glad to hear you're settled in and happy! You've gone over to the Dark side and I'm dabbling with AFVs - what is the world coming to...? You both keep safe and model on too!:dinosaur:
