Prehistoric Scenes
Model Site
What's New

For those of you repeat visitors that
just want to know what's new.

Updated the page for the Tyrannosaurus Display with pics of the reproduction

Updated the My Collection section for some new aquisitions and photos.

Finally getting the add on section updated

Updated the interesting items page, and my collection page to reflect a few cool things I recently aquired.

Added a few more reissue box photos, as well as upgraded a few others.

Still updating code on pages. Might be about halfway through at this point.
Did do some updates with some new items today.
Added a couple things to my collection.
Added some new things to the interesting items page.

I am finally back to updating the site. I changed hosting services in the summer of 2019 which caused issues I hadn't forseen. New host does not support Frontpage extensions, so that screwed the navigation on the site. So I had to sort that all out before I could really concern myself with updates. It took me a while to find a solution to the problem. It is sorted now, and I am in the process of updating all 350(ish) pages of the site with the new code.
It is going to take a while, but I am making progress on that front. Along the way, I hope to update some of the pages with more / different content as well as the new code.
So stick with me. I haven't abandoned this site, I've just been trying to improve it.

Updated the Recent Aquisitions page.

Wow. Been a while since I updated this page.
I tend to post them on the forum and neglect this page. Sorry.
Been lots of updates in the last year and a half that haven't been documented.
Most recently, I updated the Maps and Inserts page.
New layout, and a new 1972 Canadian insert.
The Instruction Sheet page also got a major facelift.
And some new instruction sheets added.
Added a T-rex poster to the Interesting Items page.
Made a page for the Revell-Germany kits. accessed from the
Production History page.

Also, don't forget about the forum. Actually getting some discussion going now.

Well, I think I am about half way through the site re-do.
I've redone 22 pages, and added 5 index pages.
Hopefully the new index pages will improve the site navigation.
A lot of the changes to the pages are both with the layout, and with descriptions and information. I have a bad habbit of thinking those reading my pages are familiar with all aspects of things like Aurora history, terminology, and the series itself. When in fact, that is why a lot of people are here in the first place. So, I'm making a concious effort to try and label things better and explain things in more detail.
Also added some more catalog scans, thanks to Jeff Moore who sent me scans from the 1992 and 2008 Revell catalogs.

Been working on tweaking the site navigation. Those changes are ongoing.
Also changing the way the kit pages are laid out. Putting the kits and info first, and the box variations lower on the page.
Also been adding a few new pics as I go along.
