Very nice. I remember this was my favorite dino kit when I was a kid. Of course I didn't paint mine, I was only.....never mind!

Very nice, love how you did the mottled look, and that is one sharp base. I actually opened one these yesterday but put it back on the stack (too many kits started already)

Reminds me about the one I've done many years ago,although my paint job was simpler.Great variety of details and nuances of colors in the paint job.

Troy, everyone knows your memory is all messed up!!!:freak:
Dabbler, Don't you dare!!! Any questions or advice I can give, I'll be more than happy to share. The "mottled" look on the base was done with some sponges dipped in 3 different colors. The wash to detail the base and scales was done with future and some black paint.

very very nicely done. i love the paintwork on the body and head. (personally id have gone with a little more color on the fin, but thats a matter of taste and doesnt reflect upon or diminish the effect of your piece)

does anyone know if theres another, more realistic, sculpt of this dinosaur available as a kit? (this ones better than the old pyro re-issues, but maybe kaiyodo or someone has done one?)

Razor, the sail is a hybrid of the design found on a sailfish. I just added more dots. I felt if there were more color up there , the eye would be pulled away from the body. Like you said, a matter of taste, I've done the vibrant ones, just tried a more toned down one this time. Thank you for the compliments.
