OK then, here’s the final model for the Tyrannosaurus collection, I’m calling this one the Dual-Detail Rex Head (at least until I think of a better name ).
3D printed model, built and sculpted entirely in Blender 2.78 and 2.79.
If you saw the final posts of my W.I.P thread you’ll be aware it comes in lipped and non-lipped versions to reflect the current scientific debate about the subject. This is a 3 piece model and assembly with a suitable glue is recommended this time. Initially only 2 scales for this version- 1:20 and 1:16. Sometimes I get requests for other scales for the skulls so this may change.
A few more photos of the lipped version (we call her Scarface).
Example shown in photos is 1:20 scale, brush painted with artist’s acrylic and lightly coated with a compatible gloss varnish for protection. Display stands is perspex and 2mm piano wire.
It feels like I’ve been chipping away at this thing forever and I’ve just filled over a week prepping models, photos and the like but I think I’m finally putting rexy to bed (mostly).
I say mostly because of course nothing’s ever really finished. There’s always something to add or tinker with so I may re-visit this thread with an occasional update. Also I haven’t printed myself a non-lipped model yet so there’ll be more photos if/when I get round to it, I fancy a croc-like olive green with rust-coloured eye horns for that version.
It’s good to get the work out there at last, hopefully I’ll make a few sales on this but we’ll see. I’m sure I’ll be back here with a new project at some point.
