Hi I've got 11 dino kits of various scales to build in 2016. Apart from the Aurora/Revel Triceratops elsewhere on the forum, I've got started on a flesh munching, blood spurting fight scene of a diorama featuring good old Tyrannosaurus and a Apatosaurus / Brontosaurus. Both are vinyl type PVC mouldings of the Horizon kits. I bought both thinking I had got myself a quarter priced unboxed bargain but what was delivered is a perfect recasting of the original's fine sculpted beasts. I've had the kettle and hairdryer on both and have reposed the legs and neck twist of the T-Rex and reposed the neck, tail, stance and opened the mouth of the Apatosaurus. This big girl will be depicted crying out in pain with its tongue out having been chased and charged by the T-Rex being bitten in the rear flanks away from the whip side of the bigger girls tail. The T-Rex is designed with a static pose, so I have changed the legs to a running / sprinting pose and widened the jaw bite along with a complete repose of its tail. All is on hold for the next 6 weeks or so while I am working overseas but I hope you enjoy them.. Thanks for looking in The baby Triceratops here is for another project but at least you can see the Apatosaurus's feet and lack of toe nail manicure bye for now - John
Feeling prehistorically inspired by both my previous Triceratops diorama and Mrs P's roll-out of dinosaurs, I have started work immediately on a pair of Tamiya's 1/35 Tyrannosaurus prehistoric diorama sets - again to be integrated into a single diorama - A pair of the Tyrant kings, fighting over a carcass of an old Lindberg Jurassic Park Hadrosuarus kit. I had to take the heat gun to these to re-set their tail and neck poses as I didn't want a mirroring pair of kits despite the mouth and leg pose options that Tamiya provide. These two lizard kings will be posed have a real blood splashing, flesh tearing go at each other.. I've spent a few nights snading down that horrible green filler and adding proper skin textures back onto the adjusted poses - lots of work left to do and thanks for looking in - John
