My most ambitious project to date- The Alchemy works- Paleocraft-Mike Evans LaBrea Tarpit. I'm still in the process of adding text and I may still add a bit more to this incredible kit. Expensive, flawed, dynamic, all the things you love in a woman, all wrapped up in this little diorama! Thanks for looking-

You do know that "La Brea" is, I believe Spanish, for "tar pits", so they're really called the "Tar Pits Tar Pits".

Language lesson aside, that really does look incredible. If you can explain how you got the fur to look so good on all those critters, I'd appreciate it. I have Han and Luke on Tauntauns here that don't have anything more than a grey-ish base coat. I don't know how to proceed beyond that to make it look real.

Oops, I noticed I linked to the last page! Page 1 is the more "in construction" type stuff, with text.
Thanka for the nice comments guys, it was a bear!

That's a fantastic looking build up! It sort of breaks my heart too. I tried to order one just last week only to be told that Mike Evans had a fire that destroyed a thousand molds! I was all set to finally get one of these along with a Thunderbeast! Not today! Hopefully, not forever. Can these things be remolded?

Looks like a fun time at the ol' petroleum pool.

Most realistic painted fur I've seen in a LOOOOOOONG time! Looks like a museum display.
