I have just finished this for my 3 year old. Great Grand Son. He is nuts about Dinos. I built this with help from John Hutchinson. Thanks John. I did leave the the wiring exposed just to show the kid how it works
A 16 RPM motor drives the thing, and an old look-a-like Edison bulb, the light. The riverbed is 220 grit sandpaper. Body and tree are-brushed, my first try.
All in all a long project as this was the first time to make a panorama like this, and also figure out the transmission.

Lights on.
Light off.



Tor and Odin are the greatest of gods.

That’s AWESOME. Excellent creativity and I bet he will or does love it.


This is great Madts.
His imagination is going to run wild.
Be ready for the rest of the dino family. He is going to ask for it:)
