Pegasus Hobbies came out with this really cool model kit of the Spinosaurus dinosaur.

Keep it down over there, huh? Sheesh!

It was larger than the T-Rex, with bigger front arms that could actually reach out and grab things, and it had a fin on its back.

As I was working on this, I couldn’t help but notice its similarity with the crocodile. The Spinosaur looks like the croc’s distant cousin.

The model is very well done–Pegasus did a fantastic job with the pose, which is very dynamic. You can’t take a bad picture of this creature, no matter what angle you shoot it from.

I'd hate to be standing this close to him in real life.

The model is 1/24 scale, which makes it roughly 14 inches long (taking into account its curved tail) and almost a foot tall. The detail work in the sculpting makes this a dry-brush painter’s dream, but the Spinosaur is just a fantastic kit all around.
