My first resin kit, this is an Alternative Images release(as was the Gwangisaurus)and was a joy to build. Painting it, on the other hand, was a pain as there are no true color images of "The Beast", so I kept experimenting until I thought it looked right.
Gorgeous . . . really nice.
Thanks, glad you enjoy it! I have plans (for this and Gwangisaurus) of doing some updated photos, with "The Beast" in a diorama setting and shot in black and white. Once I get a certain bomber done, that is...
cool do u think they will remake that movie with a cgi monster?
I found it!, Yes, i most definitely approve, nice work dude, i'm diggin the paint job, looks very close to that of the Rhedosaurus from the original movie poster
Thanx! The "hand tinted" lobby card was about all I could find as far as reference material regarding the color scheme. And I seem to remember Harryhausen himself stating that the original animation puppet was green, although I was unable to find the quote. Kinda wish the washes on this would have turned out a little better, but otherwise, I'm happy with it. It was definitely a joy to build!
I think I have to agree with you're thinking on this, as it sure does have a correct feel to it! Fantastic work!
isnt it called the rheadrosaurus? :S
Your close, it's a Rhedosaurus.
