  1. Making replicas of my fossils has always been something very interesting to me, but for the longest time I wasn't sure about how it should be done, casting although it could preserve a lot of detail can be pricy if you want to make replicas of multiple different fossils and it is something that I am just very unfamiliar with. From that point my attention turned to 3d printing as this technology can allow us to replicate objects fairly inexpensively, but when I started to looking at 3d scanning for actually making the models I found that scanners were not all too cheap either ranging from about
  2. Hi guys, I recently purchased this piece from an auction house here in Ireland, apologies as this is a replica display piece and not a real fossil, so I'm not sure if I'm posting in the correct discussion! I'm fairly certain that it is not anatomically correct at all, but if anyone has any information as to what species this replica represents that would be much appreciated! It is labelled as originating from the Devon Zoology Centre and has the dimensions: 92cm H x 155cm W x 55cm D.

    titanoboa vertebra

    It's been nearly two years since last I posted, but I'm back with one of my latest creations, a lifesize replica of a bone from Titanoboa cerrejonensis. The smaller bone next to it is a vertebra from a(n estimated) 10-12-foot anaconda which I used for reference. Enjoy!
  4. First up, the seller of this egg stated upfront this is a replica, so this isn't a scam warning. Here, we have an oviraptor egg that could fool even experienced collectors. It looks realistic because it's made out of real oviraptor eggshells. It's even covered with a coating of matrix. This is common practice; I've seen hadrosaur eggs are faked this way, with plaster mixed in to make the egg seem round and heavy. For reference, here's a real Oviraptor (Elongatoolithus sp.) that's been professionally prepped. Oviraptor eggs are commonly faked, so four ways t
  5. Borrowed this original museum replica of Australopithecus africanus otherwise known as the beautiful Mrs Ples. I'm planning on making a ceramic replica of this positive foam cast. The detail on this replica is pretty amazing, it has the bone texture, cracks and the reconstruction of the missing pieces of the skull. Looking forward to sharing this project with the forum.
  6. I have spent many hours this week scouring all the great meg photos and data on the site, however I have a very large plaster cast of a meg tooth that the Dean wants prepped, restored and made ready for a board meeting in two weeks. Good news is I can make that happen. this is a poor detail cast and has had sloppy grinder work done it in addition to at least three layers of badly applied spray enamel. Good news is I have it in a xylene/toluene/dichloromethane bath to strip the paint and preserve the plaster. bad news is I’m having trouble properly scaling the serrations
  7. I saw this while I was searching for Crato Formation fish for sale and I found this turtle that sold quite awhile ago online. On closer inspection it looks carved and painted on, but I wanted to see what everyone else thought!

    Basement recovery part 2 Reptile Replicas?

    Part 2 of my Fathers basement I have 2 crocodile skulls and one turtle. I believe they are Replicas? but the teeth on the crocodile are Fossils? once again I believe these are out of Morocco in the 70s or 80s? Thank you
  9. Hi, I started this thread because I was kinda surprised that one didn’t exist already at this forum. I myself love replica’s to enhance my collection or to use as educational props when I visit schools, musea use them too so why shouldn’t we. And let’s be honest not all fossils are available for the common fossil collector, not all of us can affort a T-rex skull or a mounted dinosaur skeleton and rare fossils like Archaeopteryx are only to be found in museum collections, so that’s when replica’s come into play. So show us your fossil replica’s, casts and reconstruct

    Fun with 3D Printing Fossils

    So recently my father bought a 3D printer and we've been experimenting printing some cool fossils for a while now. It's a really cool technology. Though it can take a while to print a piece the results are really quite cool. A life size Archaeopteryx can take a few days to print if you don't keep printing during the night. Finishing up the prints afterwards can also take a bit of time. Cleaning off all the supports and sanding down rough surfaces can be quite the process. Then there's painting depending on the desired result of course. There are actually a lot of nice things that c
  11. Hey there, before I found this forum, I had hopes and dreams of collectiong an affordable Droaeosauridae collection. Teeth are Teeth so they can't be very complicated and I found so many deales who were selling "Raptor" Teeth. After a few discussions with you guys I know now, that you basically need a doctorate to spot the genuine teeth and that 95% of the dealers are selling snarge. Since then, @Troodon is known to me as "Destroyer of Dreams" . So, before I fling myself in the Art of "don't buy fake teeth", I wanted to start with a few replicas

    Replicas vs real

    Hey guys, has anyone here bought a fossil replica? If so does it look like the real thing? Does it feel the same? I’m thinking of buying some replicas because I can’t afford some real fossils.
  13. Aloha, here is the best of my collection. Since I moved together with my girlfriend, only the small and nice samples are on display, one showcase out of three. Looking forward to the day when we will have some more space. So it is a crowded mix of fossils, minerals, recent beachfinds and mosty selfmade or altered skeleton models. Sadly, only a small percentage of my fossils is selffound, although nearly all of the beach stuff is. There is the "poultry showcase", dedicated to Birds and pterosaurs (Parrot skull is a replica of course, as is the Pterosaur plate regrettabl
  14. Hi I found this with the rest of my fossil replicas and was wondering if it could be a Rex tooth or another type of Tyrannosaur tooth. I don’t know if I can post this here or get an ID on it since it’s a replica but I got it at the Royal Tyrell Museum in Drumheller, Canada it’s a replica of one of there specimens. And I just wanted to know what it could be since it seemed strange to me on how skinny and long it is, Thank you!!

    Thylacoleo partial-skull replica

    Greetings, all: I'm new here, so I apologize if I did something skewy on my first submission. Anyway, I'd like to share an image or two of a thylacoleo carnifex skull replica I've been working on (well, OFF and on) for the past two years. It's a partial skull, but I did that to enhance (what I thing) may be the "realism" of the sculpt, since it's not common to find a "perfect" specimen in the field. Anyway, enjoy!
  16. I recently bought a Do It Yourself Psittacosaurus skeleton cast. And I thought it would be fun to share the process of mounting the skeleton. I already had a skeleton cast of a juvenile Psittacosaurus but now I also have an adult version! As it came painted, I could just have mounted it as is. But I wanted to give it a more interesting post rather than a a straight spine and tail. Since the spine and tail come in bundled segments of vertebrae. I thought I would cut them apart so that I could create curves better. And as I was modifying it anyway, I might as well improve
  17. After the Velociraptor skull, I finally finished another very long project: the baby T. rex skull designed by Inhuman Species, a 3D printed museum quality fossil replica of a 2-3 years old Tyrannosaurus rex. I really love this project and I made a video of the making from the 3D printing to the painting - I hope you like it. If you're wondering, I 3D printed the skull with the Alfawise U30 in PLA plastic; please watch the video and turn on subtitles to learn more about the tools and the making processes. If your're addicted or interested in 3D printing, you

    Fake or Real Megalodon?

    I work at a fossil and mineral store and they own a 3.5 - 4.0 inch megalodon tooth (the basal of the tooth is broken slightly but its still beautiful) The serrations are smooth but visible, the bourlette is defined and a darker color than the enamel. However I have my doubts about buying it. They went to a fossil show in Colorado years ago and bought it from someone at a stand (none of my employees or boss are "fossil savvy".) I'm worried about spending $ on a fake megalodon tooth. I work this Saturday and will upload photos of me holding it from the case before I decide to buy

    Trilobite Comura

    Always wanted a Comura but the prices are out of my budget so thought I'd try making one. Not as good as real but didn't have to sell my first born into slavery to make it. Its a Comura bultynici from the early Devonian.I added a photo of a real one. What a beauty would love to own one. . 800px-Comura_bultyncki,_Early_Devonian,_TazoulaOt_Formation,_Jbel_OufatEne,_MaOder_Region,_Morocco_-_Houston_Museum_of_Natural_Science_-_DSC01594.bmp
  20. Hello Fossil Forum, on the German version of our favorite auction site I found something strange. It’s a theropod tooth which looks to me like a tyrannosaurid tooth from Hell Creek formation. Nothing special so far but that the seller claims it’s an exceptionally well made replica! Is that possible?! If so, I feel no longer able to tell a real from a fake tooth. It would be the best tooth replica I’ve ever seen. How could the serration and enamel be faked so well? But if it’s real, why would the seller claim it’s not? Any opinions? I’m not planning to buy it, just curious...

    Manticoceras replica ( painted )

    I'm done with my paintjob om the 2 replica's I recieved. I posted the orthocone earlier. now I'm also done on the Manticoceras. 1st a couple of WIP pictures: The end result With fossil specimen: and a group picture I'm very happy with the end results .
  22. This morning I got an amazing birthday gift from my girlfriend A lifelike replica of a .... Manticoceras and an orthocone from Kamyk.pl Thx honney for the wonderful gift Manticoceras with his fossil counterpart: Orthocone replica with his fossil counterpart: a group picture: I will give those two replica's a paintjob in the future
  23. The BHI provides us interesting backstories into many of the replicas they assemble for museums or private individuals. I find this one fascinating and thought I would share it with the forum. Photos and writeup by Pete Larsen. Began putting together a cast skull of the Oklahoma Acrocanthosaurus atokensis. The right side of the skull is pretty much pathology free. The left side of the skull, however, is quite a different story. You will notice that the left nasal and nasal process of the premaxilla show damage.
