Dinosaurs Invading Edinburgh…

A 10 foot dinosaur frame could be seen making its mark on the Edinburgh Skyline this morning, as it sat on the crest of Calton Hill drawing curious glances from Easter weekend tourists for a photo call organised to promote the Edinburgh Mini Maker Faire.


The raptor model was made in Glasgow by MAKLab, Scotland’s first open access Digital Fabrication studio. It will be one of a number of dinosaur models at Mini Maker Faire on Sunday 7th February where MAKLab will host DIY Dinos – a live-build workshop to prepare and build large scale (6ft+) dinosaurs from CNC Cut parts.

They will bring along their pet Raptor and you can help build a ‘T-Rex’ ‘Tricerotops’ and ‘Bronco.’ The workshop also offers visitors the chance to make a small model to take away and to win the large scale models in a prize draw!
