    Thanks guys.

    Last pigeon update I promise. I butchered some cheap second hand stuffed animals until I found some eyes I liked that I could work with.

    I finally found a use for an old Exo Terra backdrop I got with my hermit crabs tank that I didn't use. I won't have anything to show for this until tonight when I can start cutting the wood but for now have some vague drawings.

    Repainted Safari ltd. Raphus based loosely on the painting by Ustad Mansur but having done it from memory I only realized after uploading these that I goofed a few bits. I opted to keep the tail however inaccurate since I have something else planned with this model in the very near future, but I may eventually remove it.

    Aside from the tail the Safari sculpt was already ahead of its time when it came out, just comparing it to the Primeval version gives a pretty good comparison of what we've managed to(/had to?) learn of an animal that only recently went extinct.

    Well, as it turns out the thing I was planning didn't work out so well after all, so here's the touched up tailless version. I'm pleasantly surprised to find the balance hasn't been noticeably altered (which is to say it still barely stands up).

    Expect to be seeing something else before this is finished but it's the first extinct thing I've started in a long while so I figured I'd post the plans for it. Unfortunately I don't have a reference for how tall Figmas are at hand.

    Nice work!
    That leg is too small, though.

    Except for the part where it isn't.

    I recommend doing some more reading:

    Ha-ha screw off. Go watch Jurassic Park if you want inaccurate Spinosaurus, I have no interest in such things.

    For a long while now I've been seeing these lovely display stands (I think they're from a Japanese store on YAJ that makes them by hand, but don't quote me on that), and I've been thinking it would be fun to make one. I actually finished it some time ago but I only just got it set up in a semi-permanent (I plan on moving things about as my whims dictate) state as of yesterday.





    I just kind of added animals and scenery as they fit. I like how it turned out though, like a stock jungle out of an Indiana Jones movie. Complete with environmentally mismatched animals and artifacts (all hail the garden ornament cricket, the most powerful of ancient relics).

    It was a lot easier to make than I was expecting. I'm completely in love with this spray on glue and moss texture powder, I've tried applying it to Colorata bases and adore the results so expect some of those soon.

    I like how you've done your dodos and birds, how long does it take you to make one figure?

    Not super long. Typically it takes around 2-4 hours plus drying times.
