Default Check out the wings on that Tyrant!

I pulled these guys off of a toy dragon I bought for $0.50 at a yard sale on the way home today. Do you think they look proportional to the Tyrant?



For what it's worth, I do see the Tyrant as more gliding across the battlefield than fluttering through the chalky mists that used to be a hospitable planet's stratosphere.

Yeah, I think they look about the right size.

Thanks guys. I'm having one hell of a time assembling them right now.

Truthfully, whilst the wings seem to be an okay size for the model, I'd seriously consider bulking up the armature; it certainly doesn't look powerful enough to propel a beast of that size through the air.

It's true! Before I commit to greenstuffing freaky slabs of muscle on my Tyrant, I want to make sure that the wing placement looks right:







As always, I apologize for the photo quality. Need new camera...

Pictures are quite good quality, and those wings look great. A bit small, but not at all bad. Hope to see it painted!

A trick I've found with superglueing metal is the 'Lick n' Stick' method. Wash your model off and dry it, and when you are ready to assemble lick the two bitz you want to attach then put in a drop of superglue and hold them together for a minute or two. Superglue reacts to moisture and hardens in no time at all - that's why superglueing your fingers together on accident happens so often.
