Re: T.rex starter-kit for sale

Great stuff, although I think that if you're going to put that much time into something, it would certainly be worth the effort to get the details right. We know that tyrannosaurids didn't have elephant skin, for example. And what's with the feet? They remind me of the big Jurassic Park _T. rex_ toy I got when I was younger.

Nimba Creations in England are apparently selling their full-sized
tyrannosaurus moulds used to create one of their animatronic beasties:

Just what every serious model maker wants in their collection - a 1:1
scale T.rex!
