The image of "spinning stegos" and references to models brought childhood
memories flooding back. Thanks for that.  My brother and I both collected
model dinosaurs. Remember Timpo's stegosaurus, triceratops, and t. rex ?
Well ours played football and that's where the spinning tails came in
handy. Greeny (my T.Rex) was top scorer. Steg was good in goal I seem to
remember.  Does anyone else share such fond memories ?

Following on with the sauropod thread. Does anyone know why early models of
"brontosaurus" (including the Timpo one) always seemed be looking back ?
