Chasmosaurus Mom-infant from Tamiya with custom base
« on: February 22, 2017, 06:42:16 PM »
Hello guys!

It's been a while since my previous works. Tons of other things in life had me in these couple of years but here I can start my dinosaur models/toys painting line again.
This is a 1/35 plastic model kit diorama set from Tamiya. The models are nicely detailed. I chose to custom new base for them because I think the original base is quite over-sized to display only the chasmosaurus. Well, things might look great if it combined with other dioramas in the series but it'd be too big and taking lots of space to display all of them. I used a 120x92mm plastic base and it fitted well with the mom and her child.
 
I used more vibrant and lighter color for the mom and darker tone for the child. I think infant animals should have dull color than the adults to avoid attention of the hunters. Let's see the pics!

Now I'm thinking of picking this kit up too and doing my own colors. I like the way how you blend the flesh tones, similar to your allosaur custom before. And of course, that frill! Lovely patterns.

Beautiful work, even though I find the eyes strangely unsettling.  ;D Very realistic looking paintjob. The frills are especially great!

Thank you very much pylraster! ^-^

Make sure to grab the kit. It is still great in details til this date. :)

Thank you very much SuperiorSpider! ^-^

I feel the same way too about the eyes. I think the sculpts have a cartoonish eye shape since it was the first one of its series and 15+years old kit.
It looked just like human eyes when applied only black pupils so I added more retina layers inside. Still a great kit!
The triceratops which came out later in this series has round eyes though. :)

Nice work.  I was thinking about getting the kit once.  But I figured I couldn't make the paint job look nice. Lol

Very nicely done.  The patterning on their bodies is lovely.

Very nice work with lots of nice detail on both animals. That kit is an oldie but a goodie!

Nice work!
The Chasmosaurs have also a very interesting color scheme.

Killekor
Bigger than a camarasaurus,
and with a bite more stronger that the T-Rex bite,
Ticamasaurus is certainly the king of the Jurassic period.

With Balaur feet, dromaeosaurus bite, microraptor wings, and a terrible poison, the Deinoraptor Dromaeonychus is a lethal enemy for the most ferocious hybrid too.

Do you apply all those little dots by hand?  :o

Lovely paint job on both mom and calf. The frill really pops.
And the base really makes it a nice display all together.

Yes, all dots were applied by hands and I think the result was worth it :)
