Welcome - I hope you enjoy viewing my work. I modify most of my figure kits so that they wind up quite different from the original. (And there is a lot more here than just dinosaurs - so browse on!) I re-discovered the joy of art in mid-life and its been a joy to create and share my vision with others. Art, like all creative gifts, exists to be shared so as to enrich the lives of others.
So this website is my gift to you. If you have an interest in art/sculpting/modeling of all kinds of subjects, I would recommend that you check out the Internet Figure Modeling Clubhouse at
INTERNET CLUBHOUSE and also see
At both sites you will find incredible artists and sculptors, some nationally known. Their work will leave you in awe.
Thank you for stopping by!

This is my build-up of Max Salas' excellent 1:40 scale Argentinosaurus. I lowered the angle of the neck by constructing a new section out of Quickplastic putty. Note the human figure added for scale (!)
Diet: Herbivore (Plant-Eater) Name Means: "Argentina Lizard" Length: 115 to 150 feet (35m to 45 m)? Height: 50 feet (16 m)? Weight: 80 tons (72,500 kilos)? Time: Middle Cretaceous - 110 MYA
Argentinosaurus may have been the biggest dinosaur ever. Like some of the other really huge dinosaurs, such as Ultrasauros , very little of Argentinosaurus has been found, so it is hard to tell exactly what it may have looked like. The only thing that is certain is that it was a huge, long-necked plant eater.
Argentinosaurus was discovered by a retired oil worker and was formally described in 1993. The few bones include hipbones, backbones, and a tibia (lower leg bone). One vertebra was over four feet (1.3 m) tall and the tibia was 58 inches (155 cm) long. A number of prominent scientists have stated that this member of the South American titanosaur family was the largest dinosaur that ever lived.

This is a fitting tribute to the greatest of them all.
