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 a modified Tamiya Brachiosaur kit. The neck has been lowered. Note the human figure added for scale.
Pronounced: Saw-row-poe-Si-den Diet: Herbivore (Plant-Eater) Name Means: "Lizard Poseidon" Length: 98 feet (30m) Height: 60 feet (19 m) Weight: 70 tons (63,500 kilos) Time: Late Jurassic/Early Cretaceous - 110 MYA
Sauroposeidon is possibly the tallest dinosaur ever. Reaching heights as high as a six-story building, this huge plant eater was related to Brachiosaurus.
What is interesting is that it lived at a time when there were very few giant sauropods left in North America - most had become extinct by the middle of the Cretaceous period.
The discovery of this huge sauropod in Oklahoma has been a great help to scientists, as not much is known about dinosaurs from this period. It is also a bit perplexing, however, as most of the giant North American sauropods had vanished by this time. Their cousins were thriving in South America, but for some reason they had, except for Sauroposeidon, gone extinct in North America and would not be seen again for tens of millions of years until the titanosaurs migrated north.
