First off, I'd like to say hello to anyone who remembers me from >2 years

I also have a dino-painting hobby, although now I'm studying again I may
not have time for it. In the past I have painted solid platic models
which I bought from the Natural History Museum in London - I don't know
where else these are sold, but I do remember they were made in Australia.
They were clearly cast from a mould in about 3 sections, and to get them
perfect I had to trim off some tiny bits of plastic along the seams. They
were also quite cheap. Ready-painted ones were available too, but
naturally I considered my restorations of their colours to be much better
My latest batch of dinos and other creatures, which I am painting now, are
model kits from Tamiya (I think that's the name). These are cheap too,
but I've found a disadvantage is that there are hairline gaps between the
bits I've glued together. I used very little glue; if I'd used more I
think I would have left blobs.
Is the list interested in discussing likely colours for dinos? (If nobody
follows up, I'll asssume not.) To start off, I painted Barry the Baryonyx
in a bluey-grey colour, with black spots arranged like a leopard's but
smaller and in slightly wider circles. I gave him a white underside, with
a sharp boundary between the two colours.
Best wishes to all,
