We are living the golden age of the figures of dinosaurs and prehistoric toy animals. Before there were only a few companies that made prehistoric animals (at most three), now there is a huge variety. I hope you are lucky and you already know you have a safe buyer of your sculptures. I love prehistory.
Quote from: DinoToyCollector on March 15, 2019, 04:32:09 PMHey @Killekor ,I'm still working on the color scheme. I'm experimenting with three colors, but I'm far from satisfied (but I like the head). see below. I also like to receive suggestions on the colors.Now for the size and I think that will be more interesting:I (We, to be exact) want to focus on one scale at the beginning. This scale is 1:35. Not 1:40 and not bigger. That is, the Protoceratops is comparable in size to the ... Rebor Triceratops Hazelnut or more precisely: about 7cm or 2+3/4 inch.Why a protoceratops in 1:35? First reason: there are too few small species that are represented on this scale. The scale 1:35 offers the possibility to represent many different species in a uniform way, from very small to quite large.So far, a lover can have such figures made or ordered via 3D printing services, but the price often deters many, and these are also without painting. The Protoceratops will be among the smallest figures in the pipeline.Financially, this figure is certainly not very profitable and is more of an introduction to this business and I have learned a lot lately. If everything goes well, I'm looking forward to the upcoming models. Since I will initially only produce a few pieces for financial security, the price per figure will initially be comparable to those of Rebor's smallest figures.And now a look into the future:Since there are many interesting dinosaur species that are much smaller than a Protoceratops, I can well imagine to make another uniform scale for these figures, of which this protoceratops figure would be the greatest ... But let's start with this one figure and then see how it goes on. Maybe i will release this Protoceratops in a larger scale by popular demand.
