Raptor Rider

Jurassic Park meets the Walking Dead

The figures are from Master Box, the Velociraptor from Tamiya and the Base from Verlinden.
In the Master Box set, the rider was supposed to be on a motorcycle however they don’t provide one in the kit. You have to supply your own.

 

 

 

After looking at the assembled rider I thought of putting her on a Velociraptor: would she would fit?

 

 

The fit was perfect! I also modified her by changing out the arms.
Her saddle is a carpet from Reality in Scale. The rest of the figures were built out of the box.

The Velociraptor is from Tamiya’s set. Verlinden’s resin base came from my old kit stash.

 

 

 

The diorama and figures were painted with Tamiya, Model Master and Floquil paints. Weathering was done with Winsor Newton Oils and Mig Pigments.
