No, I'm just a huge fan that learnt sculpting as a result of seeing JP for the first time in 1993! It had that big an effect on me, that I kinda became completely obsessed with creating full scale animatronic dinosaurs and have been working at it since!

I have a question on your Animatronic Raptor. What kind of clay do you use for the skin in order to bond with the Machine, and begin to bend, and rotate, and open it's mouth? Also what kind of parts do you use to make the Head work properly? Can you find these materials somewhere? I've had trouble.
How do you make the rubbery skin? What's the material called?

What types of foam latex is more commonly used for large outdoor animatronics? I've heard there's a more complex expensive silicone-based foam latex rubber available which can handle wet weather better?
I wondered how the animatronic dinosaurs at the Jurassic Park ride are waterproofed? Some of them (like the Parasaur) come up out of the water, yet they have foam skins! Is the rubber just well sealed on top of the paint, or would they have some kind of inner lining between the skeletal frame and foam layer?
