  1. I recently found on the site cults3d a very beautiful and almost complete skeleton of Microraptor gui to print with a 3D resin printer. Here is the link: https://cults3d.com/fr/mod%C3%A8le-3d/art/microraptor-gui-skeleton The only problem was the skull was missing. The creator of this specimen, Florent Germain, had not had time to finalize his skull. He'll put it later, when finished, he said. I was able to print this model and I decided to make the skull myself Lucky me, I was able to use a dental scanner (not too suitable for this kind of models) and to gen
  2. Hello together, I am proud to present another one of @lormouths beautiful skeletons I have the pleasure to assemble. At first I intended to build it in the nice quadrupedal position from "Dragons of the air" 1901, but it seems that the shoulder girdle doesnt allow it, especially the right arm that is held closely to the torso. Of course it could be depending on cartilage, but atl east looking at Laurents detailed replica bones, it looks wrong to put it in that pose. I missed the opportunity to take a foto of the neatly packed set of bones I found in my christmas parcel. Tha

    Neogene ungulates

    Hello again. I have been tinkering with 3d scans again. Using a camel skull and llama body from the idaho virtualization lab via sketchfab, Itried to recreate Syndyoceras, a protoceratid. I am quite happy with the skull and do actually have not much of an idea about the postcranial skeleton. At the moment its a flattened llama minus some neck. I think the feet should be four-toed, but I didn´t find good references for the size and shape. What do you think? Any suggestions to make it more accurate? I added tags for some other herbivore mammals I plan to build over tim
  4. Hello I'm interested in a Psittacosaurus skeleton I found online. I know these almost always consist of bones from different animals, I don't really mind that. The main thing I want to know if there's any visible restorations or stuff that looks off? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  7. Hi, after almost 2 years I have reworked my Archaeopteryx skeleton model also shown on this board: http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/110891-archaeopteryx-skeleton-model/ On the first version, I wasn't happy with the stability and the external metal support. Also, the dynamic pose made it large and difficult to find space for. So I decided to give the new version a more relaxed, upright posture and to run an iron rod through the spine instead of below it. I also reworked some details and found that the skull was scaled a bit too large compared to most specimen

    Fossil Fish

    Bit of a long shot this one, but here goes… My daughter has recently been given a small collection by a colleague of her mother who heard she was interested in fossils. The previous owner had clearly done a bit of collecting around Lyme Regis and also bought a few pieces. There’s a few Moroccan pieces (low grade trilo, some Mosasaur tooth crowns), an insect in amber and some Madagascan stuff. By far the most interesting piece though is this fish; it has no label and I have no idea where in the world it could have come from. Can anyone shed any light on possible provenance or even identify
  9. My first post on the forum was to see if anybody could show me an adult specimen of “Nanotyrannus.” I was more forceful in that approach because, from what I’ve seen on Twitter, “Nano” fans like to argue with paleontologists on the validity of the genus, even though these scientists have been studying dinosaurs for years and have degrees and Ph.Ds in different scientific fields. The evidence points them in a different conclusion compared to the public, and the fact that they are being so heavily resisted against with regards to this topic is baffling. I decided to play the “Nano” fans at their

    Mysterious skeleton fossil from China

    Hi all. As per request on my last post about the dinosaur eggs. Here is my fossil skeleton inside its matrix from Jiangxi, China. Bought it cheap, no clue what it is or what it could be. I can clearly see a skull, and what appears to be a claw or a hand. Nothing to see on the other side, I assume the rest of the skeleton is inside the matrix. Any help wil be appreciated, but I have let alot of knowledgable people look at it and no one was able to give me anything clear.
  12. I see a vertical pupil raptor eye and embryo in the egg shaped, smooth rock. I was looking for geodes, I found this tiny geode, broke it open at home, and the other half broke into pieces - 3 or 4 crumbly. I did this 17 years ago. Now, I have joined a lapidary group, ALMS Alabama, and been to a meeting, and I have had this on my shelf for 17 years. I was thinking it is an ugly geode nodule? But then, yesterday I thought, it looks like an egg, it's insides are multicolored like a fossilized egg? I then go my magnifying glass and I can see an eye, and 3 part skull with divisions line
  13. Here some photos of my new model : Anurognathus ammoni This tiny pterosaur sometimes called "frog face" was about 35 cm wingspan . I was highly inspired from Qilong artwork for the skull. :p Enjoy !
  14. Hello all, looking to get some opinions. 5-6 years ago I came across a ton of fragmented bones while scouting out a new collecting site. One of the first things that really caught my eye was this, lets call it a "claw". Like I said this was among a ton of shattered bone so it kind of stood out right away. I followed the bone fragments more up a very steep hill that turns into a cliff. This led me probably 50-75 feet from the initial sighting of bone to a place that was dangerously steep, but I could see more bone weathering out of the hill. It was in very bad shape

    Unknown Fish Skeleton

    I'm trying to identify this fish skeleton. It's clearly some sort of RAM feeder, but beyond that I've yet to find something with the single dorsal fin. Can anyone help me out with this? Sorry about the small picture, I cannot make it bigger for some reason.

    Reptile Fossil ID Please

    Dear members: I wish I could say that I found this myself but I actually purchased it from an estate sale. There was no identification paperwork that came along with it but my own research online leads me to believe that it may be a Keichousaurus. I’ve examined the matrix carefully with magnification and I see enough continuation of strata from the surface down the sides and I even scraped away some matrix next to ribs to determine that this was not a fake or reproduction. So any help in confirming the identification would be appreciated. It seems to me that this is a pretty nice
  17. I'm not sure if I've come to the right place but I found this during a walk today and I am unsure of what it could be. Can anyone help? Thank you.

    Some paint added

    Aloha. here are two 3d printed models I showed before. The Turtle is selfmade, the Spino not so. I took the time to paint them and quite like the result. Pondered to give the Spino the reddish colour one often sees with fossils from kem kem, but decided rather to colour the "matrix", which is in fact a piece of treebark. Best regards, Jan
  19. I have found this psittacosaurus skeleton for sale and was wondering if it's authentic the skull looks a bit funky but not sure about the rest
  20. Hello everyone, I have just discovered this Forum, and I have to say it looks amazing! I feel like I've come to the right place, it has everything regarding Fossils and knowledge of people. I hope to find some additional Fossils here for my collection I have just a few questions: Is it actually legal to dig up Dinosaur Fossils? Im just wondering as an example, if you dig up a Triceratops in Canada, or a Tyrannosaur Rex in the States (what would be awesome) is this allowed to search/dig for them? Can you just visit a digging site and start on your own, how does it work?
  21. 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.

    Cave Snake

    I just thought I would share a few pictures of this amazing snake I was able to acquire from a good friend who is letting go of a few pieces of his collection. He is getting up in age and I was honored enough to be the recipient of a few incredible pieces. This snake was found in 1988 in a cave on private property in Oregon. It is Pleistocene in age and is believed to be a species of racer (colubridae). Enjoy Seth
  23. Ahoi. Another marine tetrapod. To be perfectly clear, This is a commercially bought Model which I changed to my ideas.Like my marine sloth and most of my dino- and other saurian ,models, but not my whales. I ordered the model from geoworld because some of the line had been quite nice. When I first saw it I didn´t think I could make something for my collection out of it. Tried it anyway. Because of the size in my chosen scale of 1/20 I decided to model it on Platecarpus, although I don´t claim to be accurate to even genus level. It´s just the medium s

    Some marine non-whales

    Three models, three very different animals, three methods: Anomalocaris, sculpted in fimo according to fossil drawings, 6 cm long Hesperornis, digitally distorted from a recent bird skeleton and Tyrannosaurus skull, 3d printed, 9cm long. Hydrodamalis, skull digitally distorted from a dog skull, postcranial plywood and putty like my whales, 38 cm. Aloha J

    Mysterious bone

    I was walking on a countryside path in York (UK) and a strange rock on a plowed land captured my attention. It has a strange shape that looks to me as a fragment of bone close to its epiphysis which seems broken. The cross section is composed of three layers, the central one brownish-red, the middle one white (both very solid) and the most external one is like rock but a bit porous to touch. Do you think it can be a fossil bone? If yes, what could it be? First image as size reference.
