Dinosaurs and other extinct creatures in 1/72


Recommended Posts

And once again a new "beast" has left my production garage.

 

Protoceratops andrewsi, 1/72, Mixvs Minimax

 

..is watching its nest.
Its again a small 2-parts kit. One base (with casted legs) and the body.
Paintjob-reference is the Springbok (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Springbok).
BTW, this kind of camo (bright  downside, sand/brown upside with contrast-stripe between) seems to be witespread in the recent fauna.

Hi everybody,

Last weekend I looked at my Velociraptor and thought: Thats a damn boring base!
Thats a predator and let's place it's kill under it's feet. What a luck, that I have
finished Velociraptor's prey (Protoceratops).

Good idea, that's much better.

Salute!

The next items are:

 

Dracorex hogwartia in 1/72 looking for Mr. Potter in the rocky terrain of the Rocky Mountains.

The kit has 15 parts. 1 base, 1 body, 1 foot, 2 arms and a couple of spikes.
 

 

Stygimoloch spinifer in 1/72

Stygimoloch is probably identical with Pachycephalosaurus and Dracorex with Pachycephalosaurus as the adult stage.

 I have chosen the Muskox (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muskox) as paintjob reference.

The kit has 15 parts. 1 base, 1 body, 1 foot, 2 arms and a couple of spikes.

 

 

Microraptor gui in 1/72 inspecting a nest hole.

Because Microraptor is quite micro in this scale, it is sculpted to the tree.

The kit has 2 parts. 1 base and the tree trunk.

Than check this:

 

New item! Epidexipteryx hui in 1/72

If You sculpt the smallest known dinosaur (skeleton lenght) in 1/72, You get the smallest known dinosaur model in the world.

Epidexipteryx sits in a big brachiosaurid track pond and takes a bath. Beside a dramatic scene happens somewhere in the direction of the track. A Theropod of the size of a Yangchuanosaurus followed the sauropod (track upper right).

Wow, that's the tiniest of the tiny. I like the way you have hinted at the size comparison with the pond being a track print.

@Gorby: Thanks. At first I wanted to place it in a trunk, but then it came out, that it would be to hard to scuplt, build, cast and paint. At the best place in the world for
sudden ideas, I got mind-flashed and decided to place it in a track print of a really big dino. The trunk will be now the base for Compsognathus (that nasty small dinos from Jurassic park), sitting at the edge to overview the terrain.

They are all excellent little vignettes, but much too small and delicate for my fingers and eyes. :(
