Hector Goes To VBS

My Dad has been busy working on a project for Vacation Bible School.

He made a dinosaur, he really did!

Here he is, Hector T. Rex.


His head is chicken wire and paper Mache and his neck is naugahyde. Spell check is telling us that is not a word, but we highly disagree.

His teeth are cut out of an old mini blind he found up over the garage. Hec’s arms are made out of pvc pipe and covered with an old pair of painted white socks. On his hands are jersey work gloves.


His tongue is a red towel. These pictures were taken before old Hec was 100% complete. I know my Dad did some painting in his mouth as well. He has a red flashlight eyeball, his eyebrow is made out of heavy upholstery cording. His mouth moves with 60 pound test fishing line. There is CO2 to make vapor come out of his mouth, and the soundboard gives him a scawy growl.


Because he is 8 foot 4 inches tall,  his friend came last week and gave Hector T. a ride to church in his pickup truck so he would be ready for his VBS close up this morning. Some touch ups had to be done after the ride in, but he is in top form now, waiting for all the children to come and be transported back in time to when Hector roamed the earth.
