A good Triceratops model available at last
If you're uninterested in news of dinosaur models, click delete now.
I got the good news today that the Dinosaur Studios 1/35th scale
Triceratops is now available. Those of you who were at SVP may have
seen this. Finally there's a quality rendition of one of the most
interesting dinosaurs out there. In 1/35th it's undoubtedly a hunk of
resin too, so $85.00 is not a bad buy for it (to dino list people --
these things often go for far more.)
If it's like other DS models, it's one-piece and basically ready to
paint. I believe they have paint-ups available if you prefer for an
additional fee. Check with them.
It's great to see this line of same-scale, consistently excellent models
expand again. But hey! Where's the Camptosaur (the Ford Taurus of
dinosaurs)? The Camarasaur (now talk about a hunk of resin)?
If you're like me and are going to rush to order one for yourself and/or
that special dinosaur-model nut in your life, here's their order page:
Understand that I don't pay $85.00 for just *anything* a mere two weeks
before the Chiller show! And I usually don't order sight unseen either,
although I'm guessing that the dinosaur will probably look something
like Greg's painting of T. horridus:
Its pursuer, modeled, IIRC, after Sue the Tyrannosaur, is currently
projected for an early '98 release. Cool beans.
