31032 is the first Lego set I own, and I am over 30 years old. So when I finished the dragon build, I felt like I wasted the first 30 years of my life :)
Anyway, after the dragon build I saw a T-rex MOC on the net, and I started this project.
the design that I am most proud of is how the upper and lower legs connect with each other. I first tried to connect the two parts of the leg in the way they trace a straight line with parts 14417 and 14418 and found out that would not work, because the upper and lower legs of a T-rex normally form an angle which puts the dinosaur always in a squatting posture just like a nowadays chicken, and the straight joint didn't allow an angle sharp enough. So I made the lower leg connect to the upper one from the side of it instead of its end. The design makes it impossible for the two leg parts form a straight line, but I don't think the T-rex would mind, because he doesn't stretch his legs often anyway, I think. What you gain from this side-connection design, instead, is you can now get an angle of the two leg parts as sharp as you want it.
Haha, thank you for showing interest in my work and if you even bother to read through half of my nagging description, I am most grateful.
