    Re: JURASSIC PARK entrance GATE blueprints ???? help?

    I dont think theres BPs for that. At least any online. You have a good pic of the gate. Just scale that to what you want and go for it. 99% of the stufff we build in this hobby theres no BP or alot of reference. Some times you just got to go with what you got. And draw up your own plans.

    What i would do. Is scale the vehicles track width. And use that as a base line for your dimensions. Not perfect. But should get you very close.

    I did a 7 foot high one. I believe the original was 40 feet high. just take the best pic you can find of it and scale it off that. Thats what I did.

    Agreed. My first thought was, must it be so accurate that it requires blueprints?

    I typed Jurassic park gate in google and they have good fan made 3D renders, which might help out with an idea of how to better create yours.

    I looked up Wayne Knight's height & the number of Waynes tall the gate is, and it was something like 36 feet.

    So, that's one way you could do it, if you needed a solid number.

    To be honest I think the door posts are too far apart. look at the space between the letters and the side posts in the reference photo. then look at yours.
    looks good otherwise.

    Morbid flo, great job so far! Very nicely done.

    I agree with HaVoc373, that there is too much space between the letters and the side posts. The side posts are either too far apart or the lettering is too small.
