Dinosaurs and other creatures in 1/72

They all look very nice!
Have you ever considered to create a larger diorama, involving a number of these creatures together? I would love to see such a scene! The vegetation might be some challenge, though.

The beast, which is only outnumbered by Spinosaurus:

Giganotosaurus carolinii, 1/72, David Krentz, Shapeways (WSF)
Unfortunately its only avaiable in WSF-(white strong flexible). Forget about sanding, it won't work.
Fortunately the details are prominent enough to paint them in a reasonable way. But FUD (frosted ultra detail) would be of course much better.
Paint-reference is the African wild dog (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/African_wild_dog)

@sberry: There are only a few dinos which could be placed together, because they must match in place and time. But I have no space for a dio like this. My Afrovenator/Jaobaria and soon Allosaurus/Stegosaurus diorama are problematic to place them on exhibition. Usally I sort them like a evolution tree with bones as branch. But meanwhile the network is so dense, that I need to present them by families. May be I will place Allosaurus on a single standard mini-dio, and use the base for my in bulit Giraffatitan.

Looks really nice. Taking the wild dog as reference was a great idea.

Good work, nice for the eyes.
Very good painted job.
I had the opportunity to see the bones (the museum of "Villa el Chocon" is very nice, and have many pieces, I still have T-shirt from it :-D ) . The history of the discovery of these creature and his discoverer is very intersting too.

Yes, a time ago You had some freaky beasts in the backyards of Argentinia. :-)

Next one:
Troodon formosus, 1/72, Manuel Bejarano (Shapeways, FUD)
Once again a small and nice dinosaur from Sen. Bejarano, printed by Shapeways.
Troodon was probably omnivor (all-eater), so I decided to paint it like a Scarlet ibis (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scarlet_ibis) with some blue as contrast.

@Sberry: It's only just a thin layer of glass wich seperates my beasts from the world....

Next ones:
Pteranodon longiceps/ steinbergi, female, 1/72, Mixvs Minimax. Model was built OOB. The kit contains seperate crests for a male P. steinbergi and P. longiceps (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pteranodon). The wing-skin is thin like paper. Lower beak, tounge and feets have to be assembled. Paintjob-reference: Albatros ((https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albatrosse) and Blue-footed booby (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue-footed_booby)

and:

Herrerasaurus ischigualastensis, 1/72, Manuel Bejarano ,Shapeways, FUD. Paintjob-reference: Clouded Leopard (Nebelparder) (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clouded_leopard)
