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 reconstructions in this thread, I am very curious to see what you guys have to show! I will kick this topic off myself with the replica's that I currently have in my collection.
