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!

Mr. Tsuburaya created all of the classic Godzilla suits, as well as many, many other creatures during his time at Toho.
Several years ago, on the 100th anniversary of his birth, the greatest Japanese Godzilla sculptor, Sakai Yuji, sculpted a small kit with Mr. Tsuburaya advising Godzilla (er..the man in the suit) during the shooting of 1962's King Kong vs. Godzilla Kaiju epic.
The kit was a perfect 3D reproduction of an actual photo taken of the two on the set of the movie.
When I acquired the kit I decided that it would be far more powerful if instead of just the two figures I added Kong and the Castle that the two monsters tear apart during their battle towards the end of the film. How I did it is described in the following pages.
Incidentally, this piece came in 6th place out of a total of 66 entries competing in the first Internet Modeling Clubhouse Contest. Since I had never entered any pieces in a contest before, I am grateful to those who thought it worthy of their votes. I hope you enjoy it - and future dioramas I have in the plans.
