I think it was Kurt that did it. When I remodeled my Revell Allosaurus a year or two back I followed his idea. I remember reading somewhere that he had carved the hands down. I didn't do that I stuck with what I think of as 'oven gloves', I'm ok with clay but I didn't want to take the chance of ruining a set of hands and have to take some out of another kit. I'd certainly want some if anyone did some. The drool free tongue is also a winner, but as you say only if you also have replacement teeth. My Allosaurus looks like it has a bit of an overbite now its tongue is cleaned up.

Nice job on the artwork and box!!! The coelocanth on my list of things to acquire. I have seen a few on the Ebay that are about the right scale. (Of course, there is an idea behind it.) though, I'm not stealing your idea. this idea will involve water, cro magnon man and the coelocanth.
The Allo with the funky, gapped teeth kinda has that Terry Thomas appeal.

The Airfix Coelacanth from the Pteranodon kit is just the right size to go on the end of a forked spear. I modeled mine on it in the end but made it chunkier and more like a cartoon to be a bit more PS for the base. I know what you mean about the Allo teeth being like Terry Thomas looking down at the armoured dinosaur and saying ' I say...!' in a very lugubrious manner. LOL
Breaking news a Coelacanth just jumped across the pond and landed in my kitchen! Thanks Artdeco, It is a very nice add-on. I hope I can do it justice with a decent paint job. The packaging is equally fun an will adorn my shelf next to my other original boxes. Great job and keep it up.

Well I'm pleased they survived. I was worried they were a bit brittle. I also wondered what should I write on the export import sticker the post office gave me? I'm on a half term break so I can get on with my Yithian sculpt, but I am also going down south, to the Natural History Museum in London on Sunday, where they have a nice pickled example of the Coelacanth in glass case.
