This one is green and yellow. Its a nice enough paint job but its getting a new one eventually. However my extreme Protoceratops, my Ouranosaurus and my Yithian are getting the treatment this next week or so. I just need a bit of Pyro/Lindberg silliness and kit bashing to get me back in to making and painting rather than sculpting and casting. I'm still not sure what I will do with the three Lindberg stegs I have in a box. They always turn up when you buy a bunch of made up kits on Ebay. There's always a stegosaurus for some reason.
I had thought it was one I sold a few years back on ebay. Years ago I sold my P/S built up Styraco, Cro man and woman and a few others. Lo and behold years later they showed up again on ebay. I bought 'em back! It's nice to have them back home where they belong...... I like the Lindberg Stego, the more the merrier I say!

The Coythosaurus arrived. Its in mint condition and painted extremely well. It will need a dark wash to pick out the details but otherwise its straight in to my Airfix collection. I saw a boxed version on E bay for £29.99 buy it now. Glad I have my two already, its a silly price for what it is. What surprises me about the kit is that the Airfix sculpts were pretty accurate at the time of production, with the exception of this one. It really does look like a retro movie monster dragging its tail. I'd argue that the old Lindberg is a more accurate representation of the creature even though that in itself is a little old fashioned too. None the less at least I have two of everything now and I can keep my wallet shut next time I'm on ebay!
