PARASAUROLOPHUS, 1:20 SCALE, 1995.

This is a soft vinyl kit from the wizards at Japan’s Kaiyodo factory and one of my favourite dinosaur models. The three juveniles are modified from Tamiya plastic kits and the flora is real, pulled from the dry soil of Tenerife. To improve the look of the mother Para’ I added glass bead eyes and painted latex rubber for the crest’s membrane.

CERATOSAURUS, 1:12 SCALE, 1996.

Much the same story, albeit this resin Jurassic theropod  carnivore has been slightly modified. I altered the legs and feet to improve the animation and extended the tongue with Milliput. Original master model was sculpted by Tom Dickens.

BARYONYX WALKERI, 1:12 SCALE, 1996.

This large Saurian Studios resin kit from an original master sculpted by Tom Dickens, was built completely stock aside from glass eyes and mounting it to a sturdy dioramic base with attendant foliage. The colours are purely imaginary – one of the true joys of dino-modelling!

DINORAMAS

Another short-lived venture, DINORAMAS was my 1990′s personal modelling service/photo library¬† which never got off the ground due to myriad copyright issues. Nevertheless,¬† all the effort was eventually rewarded by publication of my Kalmbach book, Building and Painting Model Dinosaurs (1998). This featured most of the 60 plus Dinosaur dioramas I still have and will be offering for sale on this site in the near future…
