Well, I've started painting up another of those 1:5 scale t-rex busts and created a thread for this here at RPF as a tutorial. All this Rex business has excited me into taking on board a project I've been meaning to do for some time now...a 7.5 foot long full figure of Jurassic Park's Tyrannosaurus rex! This is to be a clay sculpture and cast in resin. Once painted, I will mount it onto a JP style display base.
I decided to go with the posture in the visitor centre at the end of the first movie. A large T-rex kit is a must for any Jurassic Park fan, and at this size.. it matches the scale of the Horizon Velociraptor kit nicely, so I could use one of those kits to produce a killed Raptor at the Rex's feet. I will likely have to to some modification of the Raptor's body to get it to slump on the floor. A Raptor in its mouth would be cool too, but the plan was to have it roaring (see attached pic). I have added some examples of Sideshow's Jurassic Park diorama which also helped inspire me and work out the dinosaurs posture.
Please stay tuned to this thread and I hope you enjoy what you see. If you'd like to see more neat Jurassic Park props & models like this, please visit the JP fanpage here:
