Here is another exquisitely sculpted limited edition small scale resin fantasy figure from Studio McVey. This one features a shapely “cowgirl” and a dinosaur. What more is there to satisfy the 13 year old in all of us?

 

The rider came in 4 parts, hat, left arm, rifle and everything else. The creature was formed from the tail section, torso, left ft and right arms, tongue, cranium and a guiding tendril for each side of the jaw. There is also a small round resin landscaped base as well as a plastic base this would fit into. There are foot print depressions in the base to locate the beast.

 

I trimmed the base and fit it onto a burled based I bought at the Long Island Show a few years ago and blended in the kit base with Celluclay.

 

The kit fit together very well and was assembled with Zap-A-Gap green. The only issue was at the base of the tail behind the right leg where here was a slight step. Unfortunately, the lighting at my desk hid this and I didn’t see it until I was ready to photograph the completed model

 

I went back to my desk, blended the step with 5 minute epoxy and repainted the area to match the rest of the dino.

 

I chose a palette of primarily reds. Oranges and browns except for the pants that show above the chaps. JoeFix shrub and Silfor grasses to fill out the base.

Wow! That packs a lot into a little bit of space! Interesting concept...looks like it'd be a bumpy ride (and I'd hate to try to feed it!). Looks great! Thanks for posting!

Wonder if the horses get a bit nervous when she ties up here "ride" onto the hitch?!:smiley17:

 

Seriously though that is a fine job especially with how small it is!

That is amazing! nice paintjob! Can you explain the grasses to me? I have an entire cabinet full of various basing materials, woodland scenics, GF9 turfs, etc. but I've never seen such cool clumps of grass! Silfor? is that a company?
