  1. I felt it high time I got on and had a go at building these 2 lovely kits from Pegasus Hobbies; the Triceratops cow and Tyrannosaurus Rex posed stood pinning down a slain Triceratops calf. The kits are complimentary to one another and are ideally suited to be built together or just as single display pieces. Cast in 100% solid vinyl plastic, both kits are very weighty and substantial. A lot of hot water treatment and dremeling was undertaken to get the various pieces fitted. Even after a lot of joint head shaving and heat treatments, the fits were so tight that virtually no glue was needed but I used long arm clamps overnight to keep constant pressure to the joint surfaces. Minimal filler was required at the time of assembly but I admit now to having to add a fair bit of Mr Surfacer 500 on top of the joint seam lines. You get a lot of dinosaur for your money from Pegasus and old Rexy is about 2 foot long when it's tail is inserted. I hope these kits give me as much pleasure as the Pegasus Hobbies Great White Shark did which I have just completed and is up on the forum elsewhere.

  2. Do Dinosaurs count as Figures... I guess they can. I'm not trying to over show this diorama on the forum but it seemed appropriate to put these up on the Diorama section once completed having had the build stages amble along in the figures WIP pages. Here's a pair of the Tamiya 1/35 Triceratops Prehistoric Diorama educational sets that have been merged into a single action piece. Each kit comes with 1 Triceratops and 2 Velociraptors. I have one of the Tamiya pack of 6 raptors at hand and added another of the little menaces - the kit mould stamp dates back to 1992 before these guys were suspected/known to have probably been feathered. I'm fast becoming more loyal to the Spanish Vallejo & MIG type vendors so most of the colours used were from them except Tamiya for the eye glaze. A fun piece of plastic to build but did get me very frustrated throughout some of the flesh tome paint processes due to my lack of previous knowledge and skills - big bow of respect to the wargaming and figure modellers out there as a result of thereafter..... Hope you enjoy this if you have not already stumbled across these elsewhere on the forum. Thanks for the peep in - John
  3. Hello I've jot a whole stack of Dinosaur kits to make - some of which you may have already seen on the forum as part made kits. Mrs P and her beautiful Lady Brachio inspired me to get on and start some of the easier Tamiya Diorama Kits I have had kicking around. I've taken both my Triceratops Diorama Sets and combined the bases. The Triceratops kit offers 2 leg pose options so I have made one of each and cut off the neck and repositioned the head and angle of the 2 main horns on one of the kits. The Tamiya box shows 2 colouring/marking options which works well for a male and female setting. I have the Tamiya 6 pack of Velociraptors which I have also used - the Triceratops kit comes with 3 per kit which leave me 6 left over for other ideas later on with other kits. The Velociraptors have a number of limb and torso pose options you can select. My intended diorama is meant to show the male and female Triceratops being chased along by a pack of 5 hungry and invasive Raptors. I've left off the fish and amphibians that come with the kit, along with the pond water etc as I am happy to work with Vallejo's Water Effects to replicate rushing water down a central stream in the base. Adding shades of green to the plant leave template sheets basic belly and back under tones applied Vallejo Water Effects applied in raw form prior to drying clear more to follow on soon - and thanks for looking in John
  4. I have combined 2 of the Tamiya 1/35 Triceratops prehistoric diorama sets into a single display piece here, A fun first in dinosaur painting for me and has inspired me to produce many more in the future I hope. Thanks to Mrs P for her inspiration and similar builds elsewhere on the forum. KEEP CALM AND DINO ON ..... John Thanks for looking in - John

  6. Hi Inspired by some of the other great Dinosaurs on the forum, I recently decided to invest in the re-release of the old Aurora Triceratops from Revell. I first built this back in the 70's when they came to market. Having followed mankind's expanse of dinosaur knowledge over the last 40+ years, I realised that Triceratops was not necessarily what the box art shows it to be. As we don't have any definitive indication of what these gentle old beasts really looked like, I decided to have a bash at making my own version of what I think they could have looked at. The kit boxing still makes the kit look more like any angry dragon or reptile with Dino features, so this meant a lot of modifications and alterations - along with a LOT of filler - so much in fact that it is now about the same as a brick in weight. I hope to get this finished for early 2016 - I hope you like it Toes sanded down from claws on the original, and leg poses changed Neck shield expanded and nose horn moved back and reposed Raising the back bone / spine - cheap plastic garden potting sticks worked well to create a new frame The kit offers a short fat lizard like tail, I've looked into the Triceratops skeleton and it looks like it would have used it for balance when running (away), so I cut and modified mine Thank goodness for cheap Halfords car body filler The new shape of the body coming together Limb work Still looking very messy London Natural History Triceratops Skeleton in the background which helped for some of the limb reworking and posing I cut out the fangs and moulded some molar type vegie munching teeth instead. I also remade the tongue and added a roof to the top of the mouth as the kit just has an empty head Wanting to make as many subtle differences as possible, I thought the kits horns could do with lengthening now that I have changed the beak and nose horn. I drilled some screws into the horns and added springs to help the filler attached itself to Adding a proper neck and extending the reach of the head forward Still missing most surface detail but showing modified nasal recesses and widened neck frill collar. The nose horn will be re-worked later on Extended Horns on Not really a clear picture but a flappy loos neck and chin is being built up here There will be more coming along soon - I hope to end up with something looking like this when completed
  7. I've just started building 3 of Tamiya's dinosaurs - T-Rex, Triceratops and my personal favourite dinosaur the Stegosaurus. The following photographs are mostly of the T-Rex head, as apart from gluing, a little filling and some very elementary painting there's not much to show on the others. The T-Rex is definitely not up to the standard of the Pegasus 1/24 (see the build at http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234996931-pegasus-hobbies-124-t-rex-and-juvenile-trike/#entry2280266). The inside of the head is very flat: P1010010 by Stephen North, on Flickr So I added some Milliput to roughen up the roof and back of the mouth: P1010011 by Stephen North, on Flickr Gloss white as a basis for the teeth: P1010015 by Stephen North, on Flickr Inside of the head with the teeth overbrushed with Citadel Steel Legion Drab, then Citadel Zandri Dust to give the impression of plaque/rotten teeth; back of mouth and the visible back of the head done in Revell matt black (#8). Inside of the gape (and after this photo was taken the whole inside of the mouth) was done in Vallejo 020 (sunny skin tone): P1010019 by Stephen North, on Flickr
