On my way to a theme park recently a group of us were trying to pass the time by asking daft questions. How else do you pass an hour on a coach? A fellow dinosaur/monster mdeller and I came up with the question.
"Which dinosaur/monster do you wish they'd made in kit form, that as far as you know hasn't been made?"
Things have been pretty slow around here lately and its probably because its that holiday time of year, like Christmas, when you are busy with stuff for everyone else and you put yourself last. So to kindle some interest what would your answer be?
Mine is any of the creatures from that B Movie classic, I use the term lightly, 'At the Earths Core'. Or a diorama of the giant Pterodactyl complete with caveman in its mouth from 'The Land that Time forgot'.

I think I might have seen one of those somewhere. I recently bought a vintage back issue of House of Hammer (Later called Halls of Horror) with a comic book adaption of !000000 Years BC in it. Its drawn by an Artist called John Bolton that really captures the scenes. Making an Allosaurus on a sharp stake held by a Cro-magnon man would be a real tribute.

John Bolton was one of the first British comic book artists to take on the Americans at the time. I loved the Shandor strip and the Hammer Dracula adaptions. It wasn't until 2000 AD that we got anything as good as the USA. If Bolton had done an adaption of At the Earth's Core it would probably have been better than the film.
