That's got a fantastic "Land of the Lost" quality to it that just takes me back.

I especially like your work on those scary looking dorsal plates.

Well done!

Dang good.  :smiley:      Dark in skin folds really enhances appearance.

Looks nearly like the one we saw among trees out behind my uncle's cabin in the 60s.

Great stuff  :smiley:  These are fun kits to paint (I remember doing Tamiya's Triceroptops).

Needs a "hunter" figure armed with an anti-tank rifle.  Maybe on the ground and trampled?  :smiley:

I think the Brachiosaurus I have to build comes with an explorer

The newer Tamiya moulding is a big improvement over the one I did! With a little creativity, PSR, etc., the newer Tamiya kit could also be reconfigured as Centrosaurus or one of the other ceratopsians.

This looks great! It makes me want to build the Tamiya raptors I have.
