Okay, I admit it I'm getting hooked on Dinosaurs, we came across this kit on Friday in Birmingham and I couldn't resist it... my last build is here: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235001698-tamiya-135-triceratops-eurycephalus/ I've decided to postpone the Skoda Turtle until I can do the paint job justice... Mr Stix still can't get over the size of the kit box: Comparison photo with his latest build box:
Edit 11-10-2017 - 6 Brachio's now, not 4 - I decided to add a few more which will be wading in the pool. - John My modelling desk is presently full of Dinosaurs from the Tamiya Prehistoric Diorama ranges. Along with the 2 T-Rex diorama sets I have on the go, I've now also started building a new diorama that will incorporate 6 of the Tamiya 1/35 Brachiosaurus educational diorama sets - I'm going to call it "Walking with Dinosaurs" displayed as a herd of Brachios and their infants trailing along the Jurassic plains. These are just the most superbly sculpted kits - highly recommended to anyone looking to do something a tad different from the norm. The box art below. I've been picking these up for around £20 to £25 each and you get a beautiful BIG well printed box from Tamiya Here's the infants - I will drop them in some boiling water to change and vary the neck and tail poses The kit provides a choice of 2 mouth poses - I have chosen 2 of each, open showing the tongue and teeth, and the other 2 closed More limbs than Legs & Co from the old Top of the Pops days All 4 kits together I have filled the tails with DAZ clay and left the assembled bodies in a cold damp room to slow the drying time down - tonight I intend to heat and steam the tails to produce 4 different tail poses. The DAZ in the tail is to stop the plastic collapsing on itself when being bended The leg clip pins that Tamiya provide really make the limb attachment a snug fit and reduce the amount of seam filling I'm hoping to end up with a scene depicting something like this below - I've already invested in a number of bits of 1/35 scenery to help with the intended diorama end result. Thanks for looking in - and of course to Mrs P and the inspiration taken from her build last month. John
