A Late Cretaceous Dinosaur and Prehistoric Animal Diorama

Late Cretaceous Dinosaur and Prehistoric Animal Diorama

Our thanks to Robert who sent in to us a photograph of the dinosaur and prehistoric animal landscape that he had created.  He has built a huge prehistoric landscape, complete with authentic Mesozoic vegetation, dinosaur footprints, flying reptiles and a watering hole.  The talented model maker then created his very own Late Cretaceous prehistoric scene using his large collection of dinosaur and prehistoric animal models.

We think you will agree the results are very impressive.

Creative and Imaginative Prehistoric Scene

A lot of care and thought has gone into making this creative and imaginative scene.  Robert has been careful to research the prehistoric animals that his model collection represents and he has only featured models of prehistoric animals that would have lived in North America during the Late Cretaceous.  The diorama features such famous dinosaurs as Tyrannosaurus rex, Triceratops, Styracosaurus and the armoured giant Ankylosaurus.

The prehistoric scene also features a large pterosaur replica.  The pterosaur (Pteranodon sternbergi), has swooped down to the watering hole to take a drink, but it had better watch out as a large predator (Albertosaurus), is stalking it.  On the ground, this flying reptile would have been vulnerable to attack from tyrannosaurids, let’s hope that it spots the danger in time and is able to take flight.

Our congratulations once again to Robert, for creating such a wonderful prehistoric animal diorama and that is a wonderful collection of dinosaur and prehistoric animal figures that you have got there.

Rebor Killer Queen T. rex – Attaching the Tail

Rebor Killer Queen T. rex – Attaching the Tail

Fans of the Rebor range of prehistoric animal replicas will know that some of the recent model introductions have had flexible tails.  The three Ankylosaurus models “War Pig” for example, along with the two colour variants of the Tyrannosaur figure “Vanilla Ice”, these figures have all been supplied with detachable, flexible tails.  Team members at Everything Dinosaur thought it might be helpful to would-be Rebor collectors if we were to shoot a short video to show how these tails attach to the models.  In addition, for those people who had not purchased one of these Rebor dinosaur models before, we could show how the figures are supplied.

The Tail is Supplied as a Separate Piece

In this short, thirty second video, we show how the tail is supplied as a separate piece (Rebor Killer Queen Tyrannosaurus rex models) and how it can be inserted into the back of the figure to make the model complete.  Both the Rebor Killer Queen “jungle” and “plain” variants have this feature and the tails are flexible, allowing collectors to put their T. rex into a variety of poses.  The nature of the joint into the posterior of the animal reduces the amount of vertical movement, but in the Dinosauria, generally, the tail could not move a great deal in the vertical plane.  However, the flexible rod in the tail piece permits quite a degree of lateral movement.

In an earlier blog post, we included a short video that demonstrated the flexibility of the tail in a Rebor Tyrannosaur model.  To view this post: Rebor Killer Queen T. rex Models Have Poseable Tails.

The picture (above), shows three tail pieces from three different Rebor tyrannosaurid models.  The tail piece (top) is from the Rebor Killer Queen T. rex model (plain colour variant).  The tail in the middle is from the Rebor Vanilla Ice Tyrannosaur figure (jungle colour variant) and the tail (bottom) is from the Rebor Killer Queen T. rex (jungle colour variant).

All the tails in the photograph come from 1:35 scale Rebor replicas.

The tail inserts into the posterior with a positive “click” and the separate tail piece helps Rebor to cut down on product packaging (less cardboard required as the model fits into a smaller box).
