    Has anyone tried building a Carnosaur with a Stegadon's head? I've been working on building my Carnosaur and Stegadon and this thought popped into my head since I'm planning on getting a second Carno/Steg. I imagine it would look awesome, kinda like a Diablos from Monster Hunter (picture included below), but I'm wondering how difficult it would be for me since I'm just getting started and have no idea how to cut/sculpt stuff for conversions.[​IMG]

    I haven't seen this conversion before... and google turned up nothing for me, but it could work. Maybe with a bunch of green stuff?

    Closest thing I saw was a bastiladon with a stegadon's head (by totzro over on warseer).

    It would look cool, yet the steg head might be disproportionate.

    you'd have to cut the Carnosaur back abit because the neck widens on the model as it gets nearer the body probably doable though - would love to see how it turns out

    There it is. Not sure what to make of it. The Stegadon horns have disappeared.

    I actually really like it personally it doesn't look 'stuck on' it looks more turtle like for the Bastiladon :D blended in well granted the horns are gone but they would probably conflict with the rest of the model

    What tools, supplies, and gear do you have for cutting and sculpting?

    While I wait for my second steg/carno kits, I'm gonna do some measuring and cutting using the spare trog neck/head and the spare stegadon head I have lying around to see if it's gonna work--but just from having a quick look by putting my stegadon's head (luckily I'm painting it separate from the body, so I could make the comparison) over my carnosaur's neck, the scale seems fine, I'll mainly just have to trim the parts a little up to where their thickness matches and hopefully meld them with a minimal amount of green stuff, which I finally got to use last night to seal the gaps on all my cold ones' snouts--exciting stuff, as you can imagine. :rolleyes:

    Green stuff, liquid green stuff (nearly useless!), hobby knives, clippers. So...more like stuff you'd just use to build/seal things. If it looks like the parts really square up properly, I'm more than happy to go buy some sculpting supplies to get the job done though! This conversion's head would be magnetized anyway, so I'm not too worried about messing it up.

    I might add a clay shaping tool and some kind of very fine toothed saw to that arsenal. (Xacto makes a saw blade that fits their handles.)

    Dude, that would look sweet. Use bits from a Basti, and wings from a Mawcrusha....

    They make several. I recommend #234 and #13. Number 13 looks like:

    Fine teeth is what is wanted for making smooth cuts in styrene plastic.
