Hey guys, I've been keeping this mostly bottled up around here because I wanted it to be a surprise, but since it's finished now I can't help myself any longer! Back in March I commissioned the very talented Milan Livada to build me a replica of the Hero Bull T. rex maquette from TLW. Knowing how much I love the original prop, he tasked himself at building me a replica like he never had before. And now, months later, we're finally finished and I'm proud to show off the progress Milan made!
Starting off with a recasted JP Horizon T. rex model bought off eBay, Milan set to work chopping it up and reposing the original pieces.
Before inserting it, the mouth was the first piece that Milan painted.
With the all the pieces repositioned, Milan sculpted in the gaps and a wattle to the neck:
With the entire thing remodeled, Milan added the primer, readying it for painting!
This is where the fun began. First, adding the base layer:
Then the final bits and pieces:
And finally, the base!
