Although all sets from Paracel Miniatures so far were sculpted traditionally, the company recently decided to take a leap into the future and enter the world of 3D rapid prototyping, digitally developing two very interesting sets of 1/35 scale crocodiles: Crocodiles, set 1 (AN3501) and Crocodiles, set 2 (AN3502).

As a sidenote: these are alligators, not crocs. (I'm a biologist, and lived in Florida ) The color, the shape of the nose are dead giveaway. You can, of course, change the color, but the shape, unfortunately, is set.

I'll back this. One animal Australia has an abundance of is crocs, & these castings don't bear resemblance of any crocs I've seen (albeit not at close quarters of course
Crocs have longer, pointer, narrower noses
