Papersaurus T.Rex Prototype

Mon, 30 Apr 2012

Visit my FaceBook page and enter the caption competition to win a signed Papersaurus T. Rex!

Did you notice how I resisted the alliterative urge to call this post a posable papersaurus prototype project. I'm quite proud of myself 🙂

I've been conducting further pipe based experiments over the weekend but the idea for this fierce fellow was irresistible so I'm treating it as thinking time. 

The arms and legs can move independently allowing the T. Tex to be posed.

The upper and lower jaw both rotate about the same point at the top of the body allowing the head to move up and down and the jaws to open. 

I've made a few changes to the parts as I put this model together so I'm going to edit the file as appropriate then put together another one to make sure that everything works. Then it'll be time for some colour.

I wonder if T. Rexes whistled, they are related to birds after all.

    Rob, I went to your facebook page to post a comment, but for some reason, FB didn't give me the proper link. Too bad, because I wanted to chime in. I think the pic is adorable. This would have been my caption…


    Caption: T-Rex leader Chomper takes on posey and loses; quoted later as saying, "I simply couldn't get my arms around it."

        I loved the T-Rex. Although I like competitions( I hardly ever win them!), I see some inconvenient: I love RI models, and I imagine most of the people like me, that lose the competition, will be frustated, willing the model…That's the bad point. Anyway, RI is a genius, all his models are really nice. Congratulations, Rob!
