I really like that vulture. The color variations on it makes it stand out. Haven't seen it painted like that before. Usually the head is red and the body is black. Nice work! also, the placement of the vulture on the tree stump is genius too!

Thanks all,I was going to go down the "Condor" look for the Vulture,but then saw a cracking documentary about vultures on the BBC,saw these rather handsome brown hued vultures,and on went the lightbulb!

Superb paint.That tar pit looks really oily. Especially the grass around the edge. You can almost smell the fumes. I have a tarpit, but no Rhino, but I do have a mammoth spare! I saw the same documentary. There's some condors at Chester zoo which look similar to this. I might take some reference shots next time I'm there. I particularly like the work on the tree. It looks just like the box.

Cheers Art,I am quite pleased with the tar effect,I brush painted the base with various shades of Brown,then added black ink to some klear floor polish,and poured in thin layers.Could have been a disaster,but worked out well.

As usual Andy a superb build up. I like the way you have kept it spot on by using Aurora parts for the terrain. I agree that the Armored Dinosaur is a bit dull and a bit small if the scale is supposed to be 1/13th. Its definitely a baby Ank. The pool is nicely done and it looks suitably wet.
