Just to do something for Dinosaurs and other extinct beasts in 1/72 on FineScale:

Achillobator (Utahraptor-kit by David Krentz . Its too small for an adult Utharaptor. So I choose Achillobator as origin. I gave him new fingers and claws.

Triceratops (Kit by David Krentz). The head is not symmetrical.

The colouration is based on Bonteboks. The blooms of the flowers are really small blooms, collected in the nature.

And now my own sculpted stuff, which is avaiable as kits.

The terrorbird from Argentinia Kelenken guillmeroi



and here a look inside the kit:


The fast runner Gallimimus bullatus know from Jurassic parc (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvmq1hT_kXk)



My favourite dinosaur Therizinosaurus cheloniformis (1st edition). I like the huge claws.

Then I started to try how small it can be sculpted.

Conchoraptor gracilis, 1/72 stealing an egg from a nest.



from left: master model-cast-finished model


Or the short armed Mononykus olecranus while he examinates a termite dome.



and a Caudipteryx zoui facing a crab on its beach walk.

 

The dinosaur that changed the way we looked at dinosaurs: Deinonychus antirrhopus, 1/72

The biggest creature earth has ever seen which was capable of flight: Quetzalcoatlus northropi, 1/72



Lets go a couple of years later and meet the Whooly Rhino Coelodonta antiquitatis, 1/72, walking through the Taiga.

Where the Rhino is, there is the Mammoth not far away:

Mammoth, 1/72

.

cheers,

Alex

Excellent sculpts, and excellent finishes!

Are you or David also on PlanetFigure?  I recall seeing someone posting SBS threads about sculpting prehistoric animals in 1/72.  Very cool projects!

Hi;

 I am so pleased that you chose to be somewhat inventive in the colors . Dr.Wing would be impressed .He was a lesser scientist on the Archeoptyrex find and a family friend . That's why I still have my interest . I spent one summer on a dig with his team .

 We were looking for more in that lineage .Very interesting . I wish he was alive to see the interest today . He would be thrilled . T.B.

And now it becomes nasty: Coelophysis has the eye of a Placerias....in its hands.
