Baryonyx model kit
Prehistoric Scenes add-on kit from Prehistorix -2016
Here’s a kit that I had been waiting for its release for many months since Prehistorix announced they were working on it. When I was young there weren’t as many dinosaur species known as there is now. The Baryonyx is a carnivorous therapod I learned about some years ago but seeing a model kit for it was a thrill.
I built this kit between April and May, 2016
I did a few modifications on this kit. The Baryonyx is half submerged in the water. I sculpted a tail to stick out of the water after seeing a similar scene of Godzilla in a movie. In order to accommodate the tail I had to extend the base on water side of the diorama.
A also cut some strips of plastic to simulate sea grass. The Baryonyx color choices were made from studying alligators and crocodiles.
Most builders painted this kit with a river swamp look in mind. I wanted to make it more of a sea/marsh area. This enabled me to use the water effects to create sea waves and a sandy shoreline.

Wow, this Baryonyx model kit is great! You’ve done an amazing job with it, such detail on the model, and the base is also really good. I like how you did this as a sea / marsh sort of effect. Also the color of the eyes is stunning, so lifelike, its uncanny! A brilliant model kit you’ve built here 🙂
That looks fantastic! Great work!
