    This is the first scale(y) model that I´ve finished since May 2009 and my very first attempt at airbrushing.
    Terry Norton´s Krocodilus bust. Not a Dinosaur, but at least it´s an Archosaur

    Just need to tweek the eyes a bit and spray the plinth with a sandstone effect.
    Must take some daylight photo´s too, as the flash on my camera has eliminated some of the staining washes on the teeth and back.

    Took the time to research crocodile eyes today and did some nurdling.
    All my fears that the eyes would become lost in the skin-tones if this was done seem to have proved unfounded - I honestly believe they look much improved.

    Thanks for the kind words, guys.

    Flart - not really my kind of thing, either, but I needed something "different" to break the hiatus of the past couple of years and this one seems to have worked for me.

    Never having done a bust before, I did get in a bit of a tizzy about what to do with those arm-stumps, though. A cross-section through hide, fat, muscle and bone lost out to plain old black this time.
