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 always loved the WWD rendition of the Ankylosaurus, but the Toyway figure had legs that were too small, and a tail that was too short.
I finally got around to customizing this puppy, and I am quite pleased with the result. This is my favorite Ankylosaur customization.
I did the following:
1. Lengthened the tail by about one inch, making it as long as the rest of the body. Wires and putty were used;
2. Cut off the legs and replaced them with legs from a Resaurus Triceratops figure that I had lying around; glue and putty were used;
3. FInally, side-spikes were moulded onto the body - this is pure speculation, but it makes for a cooler looking model. Because the WWD Ankylosaurus did not have any spiky edges, I made these spikes look like bony protrusions (blunt at the ends) instead of coming to a sharp point.
The painting took many coats and washes to get right, but now the figure is "worthy" of its WWD CGI counterpart.
