Dinosaurs and other extinct creatures in 1/72

Recommended Posts

Just to do something for Dinosaurs and other animals in 1/72:

 

Acheolusaurus_Styracosaurus_1-72.jpg

Achelousaurus vs Styracosaurus (Kit by David Krentz)

 

Achillobator_1-72.jpg
Achillobator (Utahraptor-kit by David Krentz, . But too small for a Utharaptor. Achillobator is better) I gave him new fingers.

Jaobaria hips are in front view 30° ou of angle. The legs have to be cut of and assembled in the right angle.

The colouration is based on Bonteboks. The blooms of the flowers are really small blooms, collected in the nature.

Salve!

Hui! There are suddenly so much posts here!

The dinosaurs above are all made by David Krentz, avaiable at http://www.urzeitshop.de/37-Bausatze-Zubehor or http://stores.dansdinosaurs.com.

Mr. Krentz changed to 3d-sculpting. Acrocanthosaurus (the grey/brown one) is a 3d-print. Unfortunately the layers can be seen. I would appreciate it, if Mr. Krentz would returned to sculpting by hands and Milliput.

I have my own lable, named of course MixvsMinimax, which I haven't published here yet. I see I should do it now.

The following creatures are sculpted by myself in 1/72 and can be ordered by writing me a PM.

There are others creatures waitng for painting and so completing the kit:

(but there are avaiable too)

 

Deinonychus

(legs are thinner now and the "wings" a bit more narrow)

Deinonychus_1-72.jpg

 

Mammthus

Mammut_1-72.jpg

 

Pteranodon

Pteranodon_1-72.jpg

 

Quetzalcoatlus

Quetzalcoatlus_1-72.jpg

 

 

 

There some detail work left to do:

Dracorex

Stegosaurus

Stygimoloch

Here we go:

My first model (yet avaiable at urzeitshop)

Therizinosaurus cheloniformis, 1/72 (1st edition)

Therizinosaurus_1-72.jpg

 

Kelenken guillmeroi, 1/72

The terrorbird of Patagonia with a 70 cm long skull in 1:1. Don't mess with him!

2 types of wings
1 foot

Alex - I recently had the opportunity to visit The Dinosaurs Museum in Blanding Utah. This Museum is dedicated to the idea that many dinosaurs were Feathered, with Bird like characteristics. It is a surprisingly large Museum for such a small town! Many of the exhibits are models made in there shop on site and you can observe the model makers hand sculpting Dinosaurs. Here is a photo of one of the exhibits.

That's some impressive work Alex, especially being so small. I love your choice of colors and some of the mottling is reminiscent of Luftwaffe painting! Thanks for sharing!

I -love- these. The raptor/figure and northropi/figure combination make me glad that a lucky strike by an asteroid took care of these beasts.

Thanks. There are definetely Drameosaurids. Velociraptor will be one of my next projects. Its quite tiny in 1/72 because in origin he was only 2,0 m long. I already collected sceletal drawings abot Your first pic. I guess its the american Therizinosaur Falcarius.

In case of museums I know a small but really great museum in France. Oui, oui.

Very nice paint ups!

 

A number of years ago the Mongolian dinosaurs exhibit came to the AMNH in NYC and their Velocirapitors (and others) were all feathered up.

My Velociraptor is on his way. I had to make a break. But I also start modling its main prey-Protoceratops. There is a found, where a Velociraptor and a Protoceratops killed each other. My scene will show the 1st stage of the fight: Checking each others strenght.

 

@Paul: Thanks. :-) Purple dinos go home!

Yep, that was the exhibit I was mentioning. The way the guides tell the story, the Proto had it by the arm and was trying to trample it and the raptor got "the claw" under it's chin and went thru the jugular killing it instantly. Evidently the sands came before the raptor could remove the claw from it's neck as that's the position they're still in.

Looking fwd to seeing your vignette.

@Roktman: I think I will have done it at the end of the year. In the moment I need to clear my modelling table from other models.

But Velociraptor is almost ready. The bases are already done. Velociraptor stands in dry stram bed and Proto takes position to defend his nest. Unfortunately they lived in very dry areas, so there are not so much choices to desing the base.

Proto needs some more work at the legs and the head.

Hi everybody,

 

the mentioned kits of Coelophysis and Velociraptor are finished and ready for production:

 

Velociraptor mongolensis, 1/72 - Preparing for attack.
(The fingers have to be cutted to lenght from the provided wire.)

PS: Painting refers to Maned Wolf.

And now it becomes nasty: Coelophysis has the eye of a Placerias....in its hands.

And once again a new "beast" has left my production garage.

Protoceratops andrewsi, 1/72, Mixvs Minimax

..is watching its nest.
Its again a small 2-parts kit. One base (with casted legs) and the body.
Paintjob-reference is the Springbok (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Springbok).
BTW, this kind of camo (bright downside, sand/brown upside with contrast-stripe between) seems to be witespread in the recent fauna.

Protoceratops_1-72.jpgHi everybody,

Last weekend I looked at my Velociraptor and thought: Thats a damn boring base!
Thats a predator and let's place it's kill under it's feet. What a luck, that I have
finished Velociraptor's prey (Protoceratops).

cheers,
Alex

That's a good amount of detail in such small sculptures. Nice adjustment too, as the prey will not only add to the scene, but also set the predator in its proper environment. Great modeling!

Salute!

The next items are:

 

Dracorex hogwartia in 1/72 looking for Mr. Potter in the rocky terrain of the Rocky Mountains.

 

Dracorex_1-72.jpg

 

The kit has 15 parts. 1 base, 1 body, 1 foot, 2 arms and a couple of spikes.

 

Stygimoloch spinifer in 1/72

Stygimoloch is probably identical with Pachycephalosaurus and Dracorex with Pachycephalosaurus as the adult stage.

 

Stygimoloch_1-72.jpg

 

I have chosen the Muskox (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muskox) as paintjob reference.

The kit has 15 parts. 1 base, 1 body, 1 foot, 2 arms and a couple of spikes.

 

 

Microraptor gui in 1/72 inspecting a nest hole.

Because Microraptor is quite micro in this scale, it is sculpted to the tree.

 

Microraptor_gui_1-72.jpg

 

The kit has 2 parts. 1 base and the tree trunk.

 

cheers,
Alex
