Tamiya 1/35 Triceratops Eurycephalus
|NOTES:||Stand alone kit, not the diorama|
Triceratops ranks among the most beloved types of dinosaurs. The Triceratops has a reputation for being a docile herbivore, but it could easily defend itself when necessary. The three horns and bony neck ridge of Triceratops would have made Tyrannosaurus think twice about picking a fight. The scientific consensus tells us that Triceratops was one of the most recent dinosaurs to evolve, with its oldest fossils dating to just five million years before the dinosaurs went extinct.
Most readers of this site are familiar with Tamiya’s line of 1/35 scale armor. Perhaps Tamiya was motivated to add nature’s prehistoric battle tanks to the product line, as their dinosaur kits are molded in the same scale.
Dinosaur kits are a fun diversion from building models of planes, tanks and cars. No IPMS judge can fault you for your choice of paints or your use of weathering. A dinosaur kit is a canvas on which your imagination can run wild. It can be a quick and relaxing build, or the basis for a very detailed, lifelike replica.
