As a joke, I texted a picture of this movie to a friend who shares my love of cheesy movies.  He's also a keen airplane enthusiast and pilot, so when he saw it he said he had to get it.  Well, I bought it for his birthday, and the weekend it came had a brilliant idea - I had to make him a dinosaur and a plane to "play" along with the movie!  Even though I only had 2 days (and other projects to finish!) I just knew I could do it.  Could it have been better?  Sure, but I couldn't let this opportunity pass me by!

The dinosaur was made using this pattern: http://duchessgala.blogspot.de/2014/07/godzilla-kun.html with a few changes (I didn't do the top of the head as a separate piece, and didn't have time for the scales or the tummy piece, and I did the teeth as felt).  It's a great pattern and I'd use it again in a heartbeat!

The plane was mostly this pattern: http://thecraftfrog.com/2012/07/27/ermplane-named-big-jet/ without the windshield and face, and with a propeller (I just winged that...) instead of the engines.  Good shape on that plane pattern, I really liked it.

He was thrilled with his present, I just wish I'd had more time (don't we all...)

(I did make him promise to loan me the movie after they'd watched it, though! I'm very, very curious...)

Also, part of Fall Nerd Battles!  If you don't know what that is, check it out!  It's so much fun, and is inspiring to boot!

Looks like a lot of fun.  I'd love to watch that movie too and play along with the dinosaur and aeroplane
