Pegasus 1/32 Scale Dragonslayer Diorama

January 10, 2016 · in Diorama · · 7 · 2.5K

And here is my figure build for today's up-load. This is the Pegasus vinyl Vermithrax Perjorative dragon from the 1982 movie, 'Dargonslayer'. The kit included the little Galen Brad-Warden figure with his lance and dragon scale shield, as well as the vacu-formed base. This kit sat mostly built for 5 years waiting for me to figure out the correct paint finish. I ended up using 5 or 6 shades of browns and tans, all Tamiya Acrylics. Enjoy.

  1. Well...since it's fictitious, how could you possibly paint it in the "wrong" color(s)...? Looks like a bat on steroids. lol

  2. Not real sure what a dragon would look like, but your version is pretty convincing!

    Nice to see this one George. I just love dinosaurs and dragons.
    I have this one, it was done some time ago. It is still stored with all the rest of my figure models as well as much of the rest. Once I finish with the room expansion I will get them out and eventually post this one.
    Nice work. Thanks for sharing the images.

  4. George, a striking vignette. Nice to see some SyFy here.

  5. Even though it was almost a year ago I like this, great work!

  6. George, I've never seen the movie, but I'll have to now. This kit is on my list for the next order. You've done a great job painting the three main elements here, so it'll be interesting to figure out how to do it differently and still be reasonably true to the movie. This will sit well with my multi decades-old Tyrannosaurus and Triceratops. What I can't believe is how much effort Pegasus put into the molds for this, and how successful they were in making the figures come alive on a reasonably detailed base. Congratulations to you for realizing what could be done with this diorama and so successfully achieving the result!
