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!

I turned an outstanding resin Iguanodon sculpt by great paleo-sculptor Matt Manit into an Ouranodon by adding the sail onto its back. This was accomplished by drilling holes along its spine, inserting metal wires, and then building up the sail using Quickplastic putty.

Ouranosaurus was a cousin to the better known Iguanodon. There was one big difference between the two, however, in the way that these dinosaurs looked. Ouranosaurus had long spines along its back, some up to two feet long. These probably supported a fin that ran all the way down its tail, almost to the tip.
A nearly complete skeleton of Ouranosaurus was discovered in Niger in 1976, providing an excellent look at this unique African dinosaur. Other than its long neural spines, it had similar characteristics to other iguanodontids - thumb spikes, beak, etc.
