Apatosaurus early prototype – Updated

Thu, 17 May 2012

It's like Jurassic Park here at robives.com hq. Today I've been putting together an apatosaurus using the flexible tails I had designed and built earlier in the week. In fact this prototype, Which is more about judging relative sizes, uses two tails. One at each end.

Once I've added a head it will be easier for the apatosaurus to find its way round.


Both legs, tail and neck of the completed project will be poseable. I'm making a few changes to the positioning and shapes of the legs and adding a head before a print out and complete rebuild.

"Anybody hear that? It's a, um… It's an impact tremor, that's what it is… I'm fairly alarmed here."


<edit> ———-

Now with head, rather than two tails, peering over the basil.

    someone up there needs to be patient ,you cant rush perfection.

    Glad you like the look of it so far 🙂 To be fair to Tamara, she is quoting from a Jurassic Park chase scene- RI

    looking at the head

    looking at the head would it possible   to separate  the mouth into 2 pieces to make a moveable mouth or would that be to many joints on the head and they would conflict with each other
