    I've had this guy done for a while, but finally got around to attaching him to his base. Just a paint up of Kaiyodo's super rare 1/24th Dinoland Allosaurus. The "lion of the Jurassic" is probably my favorite species of dino, and I absolutely love this kit! Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoy it too!

    Scientifically speaking, I feel that the larger dino's were likely not very colorful (with the possible exception during mating season!) Unless they had overt display areas on their bodies (ceratopians frills, or stegosaurs plates, for example) I think most large predators would go with a color scheme that would not draw attention. The smaller bird-like predators were likely colorful for rival intimidation, and for impressing their sexual partners (like Starter jackets in the '90s!,) and were fast enough to catch prey without having to use camouflage. Allosaurs, at their size, were dependant on prey that was either much larger than them (apatasaurus) or heavily armed (stegosaurs,) so they would need to be able to ambush animals without being seen. A garrish display would likely eliminate any element of surprise.

    ...there will also be more dino's coming later today!

    I guess it would have depended on the natural geography as well, like how Big Cats camo varies according to habitat. Most large mammals are shades of grey and when they come out at dusk are virtually impossible to see. Do you think a think a Theropod would have a green/grey tone if it lived in a wooded habitat?

    HOly Frak. YES! Is this my birthday!? Allosaurus, one of the great carnivores of the Jurassic (and later on Cretaceous Australia but that's another story). Oh man, I'd kill to have a sculpture of that Dilophosaurus in your sig. ;D

    Definitely! From what I remember though, Allosaurs were plains/scrubland predators (like lions.) This guy actually has criss/cross black markings on his back that you can just barely see under the "dusting" I gave him. I think this would do well in breaking up his profile under the shadows of low bushes and trees, as well as the low light of a Jurassic forest. :D

    That Dino's legs are so humanoid it's almost creepy. I stared closely at the pics a good long while absorbing all his cracks and details. It's a beautiful sculpt and your paintjob would make the boys over @ Kaiyodo proud, maybe even a tad jealous:lol

    Looks great man! I used to volunteer at the University of Utah Paleo Lab cleaning bones. I've scraped rock from the inside of Al's skull! Fun stuff.

    Dinos still make me nuts after all these years! Fantastic paint jobs.
