    just announcing my next prehistoric design and build. it's been a while, hasn't it? anyway, this build would be based on spinosaurus aegyptiacus. the largest theropod dinosaur and largest land carnivore that has ever walked the earth. my model is going to be in 1:48 scale, so it's a little over 15 inches in length. pretty big considering the fact that this animal is as big as a f-35 lightning. i'm also planning on making 3 versions so stay tuned.

    I have taken a seat here if you don't mind. ;)

    BTW, I'd love to see a swimming one (you could hold it in place with wires)..! :)

    Sounds interesting, looking forward to seeing it! RF, how would you protect the paper for a swimming model?;)

    here are the 3 versions
    one with proportionally shorter limbs and a revised sail, based on ibrahim new findings

    another one with scott hartmans measurments, which resulted with slightly longer legs then the original

    and lastly, one with scott hartmans dorsal structure. in all honesty, unless they are keeping matirial away for the public for now, ibriham has given week evidence on why they placed the holotype caudal spine as a sacral spine. meaning the original dorsal structure design is still just as likely

    i'm back. sorry for the long delay. but christmas, new years, and EOC's all haulted my progress on the model to a limited amount a day. anyway, the prototype is nearing completion. the wrinkles seen in the model, is just months of not touching the body and the models expiriences with being nearly completly crushed by a book. i fixed it to the best of my capabilities but yeah, this thing looked much cleaner

    heres a good view. i am really liking this body shape. it's just so unique compared to any other animal. truly one of a kind. as of now, i'm dimensioning the head. I've been contemplating whether or not to make the jaws movable. what do you guys think?

    I have to agree with Revell-Fan. If you can, make it moveable.

    a baryonyx prototype was finished today with working, moving jaws. the jaw mechanics can easily be transfered to the much larger spinosaurus

    very slow progress, i know. but it's getting done.
    the prototype is nearing completion. it now has a head with movable jaws. they are FANTASTIC! its completely different in mehanic than the baryonyx and imo far simpler and yet more efficient and seamless. claws and teeth are all that is needed. i'll seek towards taking photos tomorrow.

    the continuation of my spinosaurus prototype. it now has a head and teeth. the jaws can move in open and close positions. i am loving the way it looks. all that is left are the teeth oin the lowerd mandible and claws. when done, i will go on and create another one with more refined details and possibly even color. the dent in the rostrum was just evident of my clumsy fingers. the next one would hopefully look far better then this prototype.

    At your first attempt at designing a model (especially of a creature), You did an AWESOME JOB!!!
    It looks GREAT!
    I am looking forward to seeing the next one you do.

    heres my current 1: 48 scale collection. as you can see how massive spinosaurus is compared to them all. and just to give you an idea on how big these animals were, imagine a little human figure that would be comparatively smaller then the hatzegopteryx skull.
