>In the UK these models are availible from Tyrannus Imports, For those (like
me) on very tight budgets a realy interesting range of models is availible
from a company called Glencoe, these are reissues of 1960's models of
skeletal reconstructions which are (I Think) based on AMNH exhibits (T.Rex,
Stegosaurus, and as it is called on the box, Brontosaurus) as these are
1960's reconstructions the T.Rex drags it's tail and the "Brontosaurus" has
a very Camarasaurid head but they do represent state of the art
reconstructions prior to the current re-evaluation of dinosaur gait and
carriage, and could be the basis of several interesting conversion projects
(articulating the "Tail Dragging" Rex to a "Bakker Stance" would be a real
challenge and yeild dramatic results)-They are in two scales REx and Steg
1:24 Apat(Bronto) 1:35, These models cost about 10 pounds in the UK but are
probably cheaper in the states
(I have no connection with Tyrannus or Glencoe)Gotta go
