Here are some larger pictures of things on our site. You may also see images of things not found elsewhere in our web pages.
I put brief captions where necessary. In order to make updating easier, though, there are no links on this page.
|- Aliens -|
These creepy guys were fabricated by one of our artist friends to use in a
halloween "Area 51" show we did.
|- Battle Droids -|
We made two of these full-size Battle Droid Replicas for our Space Wars show.
|- Robotic Dinosaurs -|
We have been building fullsized robotic dinosaurs since 1995. Here are some pictures that don't appear on our Dinosaur Canyon page.
|and an early velociraptor model with artist Jim Watts.|
|Here's the grin that is a real crowd pleaser!|
|Dudley- our 2nd Velociraptor,|
|Built by Jim Watts.|
|and Our 1st T-Rex|
|Here I am working on our 2nd full-size robotic T-Rex.|
|Here is our newest and most complex dinosaur, the sixteen foot Kentrosaurus.|
|This is Elliot, a 5 foot long Dilophosaurus- our first robotic dinosaur.|
|These are some rare pics of the...|
|...Kentrosaurus during construction.|
|A nice grouping|
| - UPDATED Hi-Res images of the exhibit during the '06 upgrades.|
|Here's an unusual view of the T-Rex taken from inside the exhibit.|
|The T-Rex got lots of mechanical work in '06.|
|He will soon get a new control module...|
|...to take advantage of his increased range of motion.|
|Our major task for '06 was replacing the skin on the Kentrosaurus.|
|Mechanical upgrades were made to improve his spine...|
|And a wild new anaconda-inspired skin pattern was chosen.|
|The Kentrosaurus will also be getting a new controller soon.|
|The Deinonychus is the next be upgraded...|
|Well actually the plan is to replace the entire piece.|
|After menacing visitors for 6 years it doesn't have much life left in it.|
|The Protoceratops on the other hand is a real trooper.|
|In the years it has been running it has needed no repairs or maintenance.|
|Much fewer moving parts have given the Protoceratops an excellent performance record.|
|In the meantime, he keeps his chin up and keeps plugging away.|
|Once these upgrades are completed, the exhibit will be good to go for years to come.|
|- Fire Breathing Dragon -|
The full-size animated dragon we built for a midieval show
|A video clip of the Dragon in action!|

volunteers that helped with "Space Wars" - One of our most memorable Halloween shows.
|- Replica Stormtrooper Armor -|
Here are two of the Stormtrooper Armor Replicas we
built for the Halloween show.
|The vacuum formed pieces were time consuming to build, but well
|- Half-Scale X-Wing Fighter Prop -|
We built this for our Space Wars show.
|It's a shame we had to tear it up and throw it away after the two-day event- We just don't have the space to store 25 foot long models!|
|Here is a view with the bay door open...ready to launch!|
|Here I am standing behind the model for scale reference.|
