    Here´s my 1/10th scale Velociraptor from Bowman Arts.

    One of the first models to depict these animals as feathered - which has been justified by the fossil evidence.

    I mounted it on a raised rock as a vantage point and added some droppings to give the impression that others have been here before.
    You decide whether it was Velociraptors or pterosaurs or whatever...

    I call it "Look Out!"
    A double entendre implying that the animal is surveying the surroundings and that it is dangerous!

    I like the finish I achieved on the eyes.

    Hope you do, too.

    So, you think you´ve rumbled a wicked plot, Pauly...

    As if my Dinosaur kit producer buddies in the USA and UK use a Time-machine to travel back to the Mesozoic, capture way too many beasts for an ecologically sustainable balance, then send them back to the 21st century through the Time-machine (which is also set to shrink them and enresinate their molecules) where they can make billions of dollars selling them as kits and I can claim to have photographed models I have made and not animals I saw on "safari"... As if...



    Actually, Pauly, Dinosaurs are not totally extinct.
    They´ve merely evolved into forms that many have difficulties in seeing as Dinosaurian. (Though the great English scientists Thomas Huxley saw and promoted the connection back in the 19th century!).
    There´s one hopping around on your lawn even now.

    It was only meant as a comparison to your work, bein' of such a high standard and lookin' like the real thing.

    Am I allowed to say 'lookin' like the real thing'!? ;)

    Hey Spike, cool to see you here, too (and Paul! What a small world!). The Creature looks very well done! I love the colourfull (but not TOO colourfull paintjobs on Dinos in general. You say, you have PAINTED the eyes? They look more than authentic glass eyes. Great Job!
