1/40 Acrocanthosaurus Version 2
« on: March 22, 2012, 08:26:54 PM »
Here are some photos of the armature for a second version of 1/40 Acrocanthosurus- the mold was damaged for the first version, so I figured I would just retire that version and make a newer updated version- this one measures 12 inches in length- its going to be in the same pose as the other version

darn, so you do retire items, oh well
A true Dinosaur fan loves dinosaurs for what they are, not what he/she wants them to be.

Would the tail really bend like that though ?  This is something I meant to bring up for the  first piece but by the time I thought of it you had gone so far it wasn't worth mentioning really.

I think keeping it mostly straight with maybe a slight flick to the tip would be ok.

I dont see why it wouldnt be able to bend around- it doesnt have the same tail with stiffeners like a dromaesaur- it isnt too much of an angle from the hips I would imagine they would be able to move like a lizards tail

I think it has maybe one bend too many for the pose ?  I'm not sure it would be as flexible as say a sauropod's.  Maybe some one else can explain it better ..it could be more of a pose issue than a plausibility issue I suppose.

I like this model a lot more than the first version. Not to say the first was bad, of course. I would have bought it if you hadn't retired it!
