An great old-school dino kit!
By acroray March 22, 2013
Experienced model kit builders may remember this kit from their child hoods. It was originally designed and tooled-up in the 1960s by Pyro, and later released through the 1970s by Life Like, and could be found cast in numerous bizarre colors like purple and metallic. Lindberg has owned this classic kit since the late 1980s and continues make it in American to release it for kids and collectors. The dinosaur's design is rather badly dated by current scientific standards, but the details and the energetic pose of the dinosaur are still fun and it has a lot of nostalgic appeal. The molds haven't aged badly at all, and the fit and tolerances are all no different than they were in the 1960s. That said, you will need some putty & filler to deal with gaps around the limbs and body halves, including a couple of points were the parts are attached with thick connections to the sprues. There is also a challenging seam between the dinosaur's forehead horns to content with. But the kit has less than 20 parts, and is currently cast in primer-grey and should make for a quick, easy build for a young modeller. The textures on the body lend themselves well to drybrushing, and the gaps in the organic crevaces of the body can disguise less-neat putty applications, so they should be good practice for a new modeller's kit building skills.
