Default Aurora Prehistoric Scenes Tyrannosaurus Rex: Revell Reissue

After many years, I'm finally fulfilling a dream of recapturing a little magic from my childhood. I've aquired a Revell reissue of the Aurora Prehistoric Scenes Tyrannosaurus Rex. I'd love to have an original, but the $500 price tag those go for is just a little cost prohibitive for me!

Anyway, these Prehistoric Scenes models remind me of happy times with my late Dad. When I was a kid, I sucked at sports, I wasn't interested in cars, and I would probably have been considered a disappointment to most fathers, but not to my Dad. There was one thing we shared in common, a love of drawing, painting, art, etc... Dad used to take me down in the basement to his workshop and we'd paint these sculpts from some long extinct store called The Plack Shack & we'd also build up and paint the Aurora Prehistoric Scenes Dinosaurs!

I don't know how long it's going to take me to bring this Tyrant Lizard to life, and I don't care. I want to take my time and do it right. I hope in the end, what I accomplish is something that my Dad would have liked!

He's a big sucker, huh? By the way, can anyone point out the famous comic book artist that drew those instructions and actually designed the Prehistoric Scenes Tyrannosaurus?

Hey Al! Great pictures! I can't wait to see how it turns out. Post progress pics as you go. I have one of these still in the box too and need good ideas on how to build it up to go with my other two.

By the way, the famous comic book artist that worked for Aurora was none other than the amazing Dave Cockrum. I read some interviews with him years ago and there are sites that post pictures of some of his prototype drawings for kits that were never built. I have to find the links and post them.
