My previous project was the Dragonfly Fighter which took 900 hours to complete.
It was a commision from the Jurassic Insect community in their war against the Dinosaurs.
The dinosaurs are still fighting back, but basically the insects won, because there are no more Dino’s around,except for that silly fish off the Madagascar coast.
So much to my surprise, when a representative of the underground Dino community approached me to build another fighting machine, I was amazed.
Turns out there are plenty of Dinos still around, they just not keen to talk to us humans.
I know where they are but he told me not to tell anyone, so there.
We start from their technical drawings.
I make my own silver solder.
30 grams fine silver.
9.2 grams copper.
6.9 grams zinc.
Makes for a nice medium solder.
Anyway, they didn’t like the first horn so I cut it off.
Then I hot forged a stainless steel on according to Dino specs.
And then I mounted it on as they wished. ( Tyrannosaurus Rex’s are experts in unarmed combat, so you don’t want to piss them off, trust me on this one.)
Then I made the eyes, which I will make a separate tutorial of next week.
The canines are stainless steel teeth set in silver, so they also capable of killing vampires, which is what the Dinos wanted, because Vampires just LOVE feasting on Dino blood…
After various discussions, here we are now.
There is still a long road ahead and lots of armour to be added to the head.
I’ll add to this thread as I go along.
