Finally got the 1/24 Platybelodon molded. As time allows, I'll finish the diorama and post some pics.

That is awesome. I'm assuming that you are the creator of this model?

Very good work. Been working in the model industry for 20 years first one of those I have seen. Nice to see something besides a T.Rex, stegosaurus.

Superb! I can visualize your laboratory on a dark and stormy night:

"Give my creation...LIFE!"

haha Thanks, guys. It's amazing how long it takes to sculpt something. The hard part is getting the proportions right. It was pretty scary when the mold was opened up to reveal a crushed model, but it was worked through.

Making the molds is a science. You learn pretty quick, though, because every unusable mold half may as well be $50 down the toilet.

Yep molding and casting is where a lot of sculptors fall down. Looks pretty easy till you jump in and try it then not so much. Mother molds are worse to me just because of the time involved but small models rarely need them. Again good work looking forward to seeing the finished piece. Here are a couple I did.

Very nice sculpts. I have a Boar Croc (Kaprosuchus) on the bench right now. He's going to be a difficult sculpt.

The T-rex and Edmontosaurus should be molded within 3 weeks, hopefully.
