Awesome work man, as usual. the paint job, the fuzz, everything. You could almost mistaken it for being real...if the anatomy wasn't so insane it couldn't possibly be...

I want to feel bad for John, but at the same time, becoming this beastie would be pretty sick. :XD: That is, if you could keep your human mind (and being able to change back would be nice). :D
Your models are always so awesome. I love the details! The textures in his skin, the wrinkles around his mouth and on his belly, the shine on his mandibles and claws, it's all so beautifully done! :clap: How long did this take?

yeah the kothoga revell kit came out year back and was far from accurate. This one was sculpted by roostercat, a good friend of mine and one hell of a sculptor. Hes a member here too!

never owned it, but I recall I liked the pose of the other one (it was kinda rearing up on its hind legs and twisting) though i remember its shoulder hump being far less pronounced than it should have been

I like the sound they went with for this creature. Didn't know a creature's breathing can be scary. ^^

I've noticed, is over halfway through now.
It is very tense. :excited: And I've been reading up on information of the Kothoga, really cool. :w00t:
What most intrigued me is that is designed by the same guy who designed the Yaut'ja (the Predator), go Stan Winston! :la:

I've got the novel (called "Relic") and whilst it is very different from the film, it is an amazingly great read!! :)

I HIGHLY recommend getting it. ^^

I also have the sequel, "Reliquary".

Yes I heard that the book were different, may eve better than the film. :O And the good thing about the book is that it were written so that it would be a sequel.

Thanks for giving me the name of the sequel book! :la:

Your welcome.
Reliquary isn't easy to find, but it can be found fairly cheap on eBay.

Good luck "Relic-hunting"! :D
