Aurora 1971 Allosaurus model
29 pieces. Molded in green with yellow base parts.
A 1971 series kit with decent detail but nothing great.

Revell 2007 allosaurus dinosaur model
This will give you an idea of the size of the kit.
Revell 2007 allosaurus dinosaur model built allosaurus

Really easy to find the kit itself in all versions. What is tough to find are the bases, and the boxes. No reissue has ever included the bases or nameplate. Expect to pay good money for those items.

The head swivels, arms, paws, legs, and feet move. 2 sections of tail swivel.
Arm pins are the same as the ones for the rex.
Monogram also called it the Dragon Dinosaur.
Revell just called it Allosaurus, though they named it Fang in their latest reissue

Here's a pic of my two part base.




Ok, here goes.
The first edition of this kit came in the box with the tiger on it. It had no base. After that, the box art changed to the one without the tiger and the model contained a 2 part base.
I have heard there was a transitional stage that used the box with the tiger and came with a 1 piece base. Can anyone confirm any of this? I think that the one-piece base stage is probably true. I have seen a lot of auctions for this kit with only one base piece. They alway seem to be the same piece too. So that does lead me to belive that this did happen.

Skilcraft - #6078
  Apparently a company by the name of Skilcraft produced this 2 pack using the original molds.
At this time, I know very little about the company or what else they might have produced or when.
It does come with a neat backdrop that is on the
displays page.

And they are molded in the same color so it looks like it was intentional.
