Aurora Prehistoric Scenes Styracosaurus – model kit

 

I was finally able to build another model kit after a long hiatus. This one is the Revel re-issue of the Styracosaurus. Included with the kit is the Carboniferous Forest base extension (You can get one from Jurassic Arts) and my little Carnosaur in the background peeking through the trees.

I painted the whole dinosaur with a van dyke brown and yellow ochre undercoat before painting layers of green for the skin color. The horns are black/white/gray and silver. The only modification I made to the dino was adding the skin at the back of the mouth as seen on many reptiles.

This is one of my favorite dinosaur model kits and glad to have the opportunity to build this again. The first time I built it was 40 years ago!

Here is my Aurora Prehistoric Scenes, Woolly Rhino, garage kit.

There was no Woolly Rhino kit release from Aurora, so I built this using pieces of Aurora kits and sculpting my own details.

???????????????????? Aurora Prehistoric scenes Tar Pit

This kit uses the head from the Woolly Rhino in the Aurora Tar-Pit kit. I sculpted a body and made a base to match the tradition of the Aurora kits.

See my video for info on the build, sculpting, painting and creating the Woolly Rhino kit…
