Our thanks to Dave, an Everything Dinosaur customer, who sent in some photographs of his amazing model collection.  He began collecting prehistoric animal figures in January 2021. Since then, he has amassed a wonderful and eclectic collection.  To build up such an incredible dinosaur model collection is such a short space of time is quite remarkable.

A Stunning Dinosaur Model Collection

At Everything Dinosaur, we enjoy seeing how our customers display their figures.  There is an active and very supportive model collecting community and we really appreciate all the photographs that we get sent.  This is an incredible collection, and our team members were able to spot some rare and difficult to find pieces.  We could spot some of our own personal favourites too.

Dinosaur model collecting has become an increasingly popular hobby in recent years. Hobbies involving building a dinosaur model collection boomed during the lockdowns of the pandemic. For many collectors, the thrill lies in the hunt for new figures and rare pieces. There is often a race to acquire a model before it is retired and out of production.

Dave commented:

“I am very pleased, and surprised, at the progress I have made in a little more than three years. I have managed to find many retired and difficult to obtain items along the way, but my quest is far from over and there are several pieces which still elude me.”

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur explained that the choice of figures is vast. There the “classic” models of our childhoods as well as beautiful, hand-painted figures inspired by movie franchises. The range of scientifically accurate figures is extremely large. Collectors often specialise in certain areas, such as collecting models from certain manufacturers or confining themselves to figures representing animals from the Jurassic or Cretaceous.

Displaying a Prized Collection

Beyond the collecting itself, many enthusiasts also take pleasure in displaying their prized prehistoric animals. Elaborate custom shelves and cabinets allow collectors to artfully present their miniature prehistoric figures. Some even go so far as to recreate entire dioramas and prehistoric scenes.

We have received photographs of elaborate prehistoric animal dioramas, complete with cycads, conifers and other prehistoric fauna.  However, how a collector chooses to display their figures is entirely down to them.  Every inch of shelf space has been exploited by this collector.  It is a truly remarkable prehistoric animal and dinosaur model collection.

Our thanks to Dave for sending into us these fantastic photographs.  This collection of exquisitely detailed dinosaur and other prehistoric animal models is truly impressive. It is clear that this collector has put an immense amount of time, effort and passion into building up such a comprehensive and awe-inspiring display.
