I have just finished this for my 3 year old. Great Grand Son. He is nuts about Dinos. I built this with help from John Hutchinson. Thanks John. I did leave the the wiring exposed just to show the kid how it works
A 16 RPM motor drives the thing and an old look-a-like Edison bulb for light.. The riverbed is 220 grit sandpaper. Body and tree are air-brushed, my first try.
All in all a long project as this was my first time to make a panorama like this, and also figure out the transmission.

It’s nice project and I’m sure must be wonderful to a 3 year old grandson. Way to go, Graddad.
