I know this is probably your first thread and it's mine too...haha.
I'm brand spanking new here and I'd like to start a thread on a build that's been in my head for a few months now. Star tours was one of my all time favorite rides and now with the phasing out of the old ride, I'd like to build me a Disneyland version Captain Rex. I'm starting to amass reference photography and I'm reaching out to some imagineer buddies to see what I can pull together, but if any of you have any information or even recognize parts on rex that would help me with scale or sources especially for the eyes, mouth and face parts, that would be great.
I'll most likely start with a head/neck build followed by the rest of the torso with the eventual goal being a fully operational Rex.
Wish me luck... I'll need it!
UPDATE 1: 3D Model Finished, check it out on page 7!
Good Reference (but wrong mouth):
