    Those small fires were tricky to make, but with time anything is possible!

    I then started with the sign part of the gate, totally ignoring the outline of the tabs I had done before and just cut what seemed right.
    Like I said, I have never done anything like this before, trying to make a design, so it was a lot of trial and error! :)

    ...to make something for the glued-on toe to stand on that will make the picture I added of a T-Rex body look like it is coming out of the picture.

    ...and add some printed plants to cover the base of the gate making it blend in more with the background.

    Last picture, this one is just to show scale, it´s hanging next to my previous craft of the M41-A Aliens gun that is in scale 1:1.

    Alright!! Now I have a Jurassic Park gate! With a T-Rex! :)
    See you on the next build!!

    No. It's far from looking "OK".

    IT'S LOOKING GORGEOUS! AWESOME! Like a still from the movie, it could have served as teaser trailer for the movie! Really well done! Great job! :thumb::thumb::thumb:
