Another Dinosaur - Anchiceratops

Yet another dino for you all. I really need to finish something in another genre. Here's my recently completed 1/20 scale Kaiyodo Anchiceratops that I purchased off Ebay a year or so ago. Airbrushed and dry-brushed with reddish browns with some grays thrown in. Would like to hear what you think works (or doesn't).

Hey Doc Brad-
I think your color choices really work well. The great thing about modeling dinosaurs is no one has actually ever seen one, therefore a lot of artistic license can be taken with the colors. Your colors appear to mimic modern similar animals and consequently give it the look of a real living creature. Well done!

Thanks guys! I've got to get a better set-up for taking pictures, though. Too much glare in some of them. Hate to think what it would be like if the dino didn't have a flat coat on it!

That is one awesome looking dino!

Everything is possible. You are only limited by your own imagination.

No complaints from me, it looks awesome. I think the color choices are just right.

I like it too! They're not perfect by a long shot, but there are a lot of fun kits in that old "Dino Land" set of kits.

Very nice! I have trouble coming up with natural-looking dino paint jobs.

Thanks John - strangely, I have trouble coming up with incredible TOS style space station kit bashes!

That's a really nice colour scheme. Did the groundwork come with the kit or did you add it? The ferns are very effective.

Some plants came from a pet store, and the ferns from a larger plastic fern from Michael's. The kit itself didn't come with a base - I don't think any in that series did from what I've seen so far.

I am not a dino expert but I think the paint job looks fantastic.
