[MOC] Jurassic Brick

Posted (edited)

Built as a set of commissioned works for Warren Elsmore's book Brick by Brick Dinosaurs and his tour Brick Dinos , this series of dinosaur dioramas is the culmination of six months of hard work, late nights, lots of research and loads of fun!

Each dinosaur has been designed as accurately as possible and has been placed in a setting suitable to its environment and era. (I call my collection "Jurassic Brick" as a whim, since I am well aware that many of the creatures actually lived during the Cretaceous period!)

Anyone interested in building these dinos should get a copy of Warren Elsmore's book. Warren did a brilliant job creating clear, step-by-step instructions which turn my rather complicated models into something readers can confidently build at home themselves.

I really enjoyed designing this series of dinosaurs and hope others get pleasure from building them!

Very impressive! I was looking, at your deviant art page, after seeing your Santiago de Compostela build and wondered when you would post more of your wonderful creations. The dinosaurs looks very, very good and show quite some attention to current reconstructions. Superbly done, as are the backgrounds.:classic: :thumbup:

The only criticism I have is hat brachiosaurus wasn't a tail-dragger, but thats just a tiny detail really :wink:

Holy crapoli! What a fine lot of dines....OMG! All the little nieces and nephews are gonna go bonkers when they see these photos. And the big folks, too. It was wonderful seeing a setting for each type because that makes them more real looking. Congrats on so many fine builds!

These are some of the most brilliant dinosaur MOCs-and MOCs in general-that I have ever seen. The attention to detail is spectacular!

 

 

A bit off the subject, but I'm new here. How do you get those quotes/pics, etc. that appear underneath each of your posts?

The dinosaurs look good, but I'm actually more interested in the terrain and water effects. Those play nicely into things I build.

Although, I thought Brontosaurus technically wasn't real (I thought it was a misnomer). Either way, it looks like a great collection. Good job.
