Hi Guys,
First,,,
I did not see a place other than Aircraft or Buildings that I could post this one.
So I'm doing it here.
This is the NEW F.G. T-Rex model.
Just had to try it as I'm an Archaeologist, and I have always loved Dinosaurs.
A really nice sized model when finished.
Not too hard to build either.
The hardest part for me was the legs and feet,,,
just had to get it to stand without gluing it to the diorama.
That way I could put it anywhere I wanted to and shoot pictures of the little guy.
Even my helper BRUMBY likes it. ( Tried to chew on it a bit but I saved it before
he did any damage to it. )
Took it out for a walk in the yard to let it get some fresh air
and do a bit of hunting too. ( HE HE )
Hope you guys enjoy the pictures.

That is a real nice looking model you did musicman. It came out perfect. Did you have to pain ir or have to touch up any places on it. Super good job. Well done. wc

Thanks Wad-Cutter,,,
Glad you enjoyed the pictures.
As for touching it up.
Nope,,,
All I did as with all my builds is I use a sharpie to color
the cut edges before I assemble the parts.
The tongue and a couple other parts I colored the back sides with a colored sharpie
to make both sides the same color and have it not the
white of the paper card stock.
I printed the model out on 90 weight card stock to make it more ridged.
I use Ailleens Tacky Glue to glue all my models together with.
Just be careful with the legs and make sure they are the way you
want them, and then add the toes.
After that,,, glue the head and tail onto the body.
And always have fun building.
Best Regards,
musicman

That came out great! The texturing on this one is quite impressive. The hunting photos are really neat. It's a good thing it didn't hunt the kitty. :lol:

Sounds like you and I are modeling about the same way. I have been using colored pencils to color the edges. I might try it your way and see what happens. Than to my Coach(Willygoat) fum is all there and relaxation. Thank you for the tips on the legs and feet. I have a few differ types of Ailleen. Tacky being one of them. Willy put me onto Turbo and that one is a winner. I also found a clear Tacky but I haven't tried it yet. Real nice job on Rex and thanks again for the tips. wc

Thanks Willy.
The model goes together pretty well overall.
The texturing is such that even if you don't get the parts placed exactly the same way every time you build it,,,
The skin will look good anyway.
Hope he comes out with some more models for F.G.
Have you built the flying Gull model yet?
It is a beauty too.
And fun to fly. My two helpers like to chase it when I fly it through the living room.
As for the Baby T-Rex hunting a kitty about the same size as the T-Rex is,,,
That would be an interesting fight.
I would have to go with the kitty though.
The Rex does have a larger mouth and teeth,,, and strong hind legs with formidable claws,,, and a strong tail.
But the kitty is a hunter with a strong bite too,,, strong hind legs and claws like the Rex,,,
and front limbs and paws that they use like hands with formidable claws as well.
The kitty is also an ambush hunter with a larger brain for processing fight techniques.
And I'm a cat person,,, so I have to go with the kitty. (HE HE) :lol:
Anyway,,, good hearing from you.
Best Regards,
Gary

I didn't realize that prehistoric Cats were bigger than T-Rex :shock: :shock: No wonder T-Rexs are extinct :!: :mrgreen:

Thanks Possm,
Glad you like the build,

My helpers are my joy.
Even when they are digging into my tool kit when I am trying to work.
Wouldn't have it any other way.
