The company specialises in military kits, including planes, ships, armoured vehicles and figures but the PVC vinyl range has recently expanded to include three iconic dinosaur figures.

All three of the PVC vinyl kits were sculpted by the very talented palaeo-sculptor Galileo Hernandez Nunez, who has built up a strong reputation for his work on prehistoric animal models.  The paintwork seen on the boxes is the work of the equally talented Shane Foulkes.  The kits are recommended for people who are fourteen or over and each kit consists of several pieces that have to be assembled and glued together to complete the piece.  Please note, as with many of these types of replica kits, there is no paint or glue provided in the box.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur stated:

“We have long been admirers of the work of Galileo Hernandez Nunez and Shane Foulkes. in our view, is one of the most talented artists and model makers around.  We are delighted to be able to offer Everything Dinosaur customers the opportunity to acquire and build these marvellous kits.”

The detail on the models is fantastic and as with the T. rex figure, the Spinosaurus is depicted hunting.  However, the Spinosaurus, regarded as a specialist fish hunter, is shown having caught a Xiphactinus.  Spinosaurus may be regarded as the largest land carnivore known to science but it would have done well to have caught such a fish.  Firstly, although Xiphactinus (a voracious predator in its own right), fossil material is known from the United States, Canada, Europe and Australia, as far as we are aware, no fossils of this giant predatory fish have been found in Africa (the home of the Spinosaurus genus).  In addition, the likes of Spinosaurus aegyptiacus had been extinct for some twenty-five million years before Xiphactinus evolved.

The Spinosaurus replica is a terrific addition to the model series.  Yes, as our dinosaur experts point out, the Xiphactinus in a lacustrine or riverine environment is extremely unusual, as far as the known fossil record goes, these fish were entirely marine and highly nektonic with no likely need to venture close to shore or into fresh water. Putting this little quibble aside, all three models are terrific and Everything Dinosaur is delighted to able to add them to its range.
