  1. 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 time because I think I cannot add new tags once I started a topic. Thanks, J
  2. Pterosaurs

    Hello again. After a great holiday full of colourful dinosaurs (avian ones) I am back home and playing with 3d- models. Pteranodon skull is a print of P360 s model on sketchfab. yellow parts are rebuild in epoxy putty, brown ones are from a geoworld model. Tapejara skull is 3dprinted from Igor Novis´ 3d model on thingiverse, Nyctosaurus, Dsungarypterus and Anhanguera are 3d-modeld by me, using mostly drawings by Mark Witton as reference. What do you think? Aloha J What do you think?
  3. Spinosaurus gift

    I thought I would share this. A gift for my 6-year old nephew's birthday. An amazing Spinosaurus model/toy with working jaw, highly detailed, and an actual Spino fossil tooth, approx. 150 myo. I know if I were a 6 year old crazy about dinosaurs, which I was, and still am, would go berserk over this gift. I almost want to keep them for myself, haha. and Happy Mothers Day to all of the moms out there! KP

  5. Somewhat fishy

    Ahoi, I just finished a model of Dunkleosteus the lazy way, because I don´t have that much time these days. Lazy way means: Skull is a bought model from kaiyodo dinotales, postcranial is a skeletal drawing by Scott Hartmann I modified slightly and printed on some transparent foil. Like the outcome. It is quite small though, only 15 cm, representing a meager 3m in my chosen scale. can anyone tell what the other two are? both recent species, one handmade after a photograph, the other 3d printed from ct data. As I don´t know if I can add tags after posting , I just added the ones I may put in this thread if I ever find the time to build them. After all my Whales, other marine Mammals , Birds and Reptiles I thought it would be nice if I could include some more Reptiles and "Amphibians" (?) If it crossed the border between land and sea, its likeness shall be built by me -some day. -Placodus -Cyamodus -Mastodonsaurus -Tiktaalik -Ichthyostega -Diplocaulus Aloha, J
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. Plesiosaur upgraded

    Same Story again, looking whart i can make of a bought model that has been around for some time. 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. Trying it anyway. Scaled size and approximate proportions of Futabasaurus, not reallyenough detail to tell. Aloha J
  9. 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 sized Mosasaur to go with my whales and other seacritters. The flippers may need further detailwork. But for now I am content with the result. The base is a recent tuna vert by the way. Aloha!
  10. Dinosaur Postures

    After the satisfying outcome of my sloth-experiment (changing geoworld megatherium to Thalassocnus) I took another look at some older dinosaur models. Sauropoda- Giraffatitan: "Edutoys Brachiosaurus", added teeth and one cervical vertebra to give him a more erect pose, Changed cervical ribs from medial "monorib". changed leg pose. Thyreophora- Stegosaurus: Glencoe models , changed tail and thagomizer to more modern pose Ceratopsia- Triceratops: Kaiyodo "Wild rush" gave him a treetrunk to look over. Ornithopoda- Parasaurolophus: Geoworld, drilled out intercostal plastik. painted it. Theropoda- Spinosaurus: had it 3d printed. I wonder if I should give it a swimming pose, what do you think?
  11. my sloth- Thalassocnus

    As my whale family is nearly complete now I went looking for other marine tetrapods. (and big fish by the way). I had for some time included Thalassocnus, the unbelievable swimming sloth of Miocene Peru in my to do list. Really fourlegged tetrapods are quite a lot of work compared with the highly reduced whales, so I was glad when I realized that the Megaterium made by geoworld was more or less my scale when seen as a big Thalassocnus of 3.3 meters. It finally arrived the day before yesterday, and today I spent some hours making it look more seagoing. I lengthened the snout, smoothed the skull and jaw. sawed out the intercostal spaces and made the limbones less bulky. The spinal processes are pointing more backwards now. (or at least their edges are) I am positively surprised how well this cheap model turned out after only few hours of work. Aloha J
  12. Hiya - I'm wondering if anyone can help me fill in the missing areas of my ichthyosaur sculpt? It's an attempt at an ichthyosaurus breviceps skull but I just can't find any photos / diagrams that give me the information / confidence to complete the back. Any help would be really appreciated! many thanks!
  13. 3d printed trex model

    Been printing out this 3d model for the last 4 days I got from thingiverse, still need to paint it but had to show it off.
  14. classic,IMHO

    inEWESTcephalopsuturesrep89.pdf I loved fig.5,the reconstruction. Pictorially stunning If you already have the classic Westermann ,Oloriz,Hewitt and Checa literature: this is right up there,and then some But do I recommend it? on Doush's PDF-grade-o-meter*: 11 out of 10 *patent pending
  15. Archeoceti skulls 3d WIP

    Hello again, on my constant search for 3d archeoceti references I stumbled upon a method that seems very promising: I took a 3d scan of a dog skull that I scanned myself via photogrammetry and twisted it around until it looked more or less dorudontine to me. That´s much less work than building the dorudon-skull from primitive shapes. Took me about 3 hours so far. This Method seems nearly unlimited to me (for artistic uses anyway) Take the closest recent skull you can get and transform it into your species of choice. I have never done anything like that before (not digitally at least) and after one day trying around Iam astonished at the result. Archeoceti here I come! here is the 2d reference I used: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Datei:Dorudon_atrox_and_Maiacetus_inuus.jpg I hope for contructive advice on what is still wrong with the skull. Does it have to look so evil from the front? that´s what came out when I tried to recreate the top- and side view. Best Regards, J J
  16. Model Anomalocaris

    From the album Anomalocaris and friends.

    This is a great (not quite accurate) model of an Anomalocaris that I got for Xmas. Now when visitors ask "what's that smudge on that rock?", instead of pulling up a pic I can simply show them the model.
  17. Trilobite 3D printing project

    I'm working making a 3D printed trilobite. I'm new to FF, lured here by so many informative posts and pictures, some of which have been invaluable in modeling this "bug." Here's a look at the 3D model so far, made and rendered in Blender. (My avatar provides another view.) If anyone has pictures of specimens of this species group (which I hope the experts can easily identify!), particularly with soft tissues preserved, I would be very grateful for pointers. I've been working from the Harrington 1959 reconstruction, salted with specimens found here and elsewhere online, spiced with a little imagination, and served with a giant helping of 3D printing constraints. The biggest constraint is that the frilly details won't survive the 3D printing post-processing; secondarily, I want to make something robust enough for people to handle. I'm doing this because I always wanted to hold a trilobite, to pick one up out of the rock, turn it over, run my fingers along the spines. Wandering the forums, I get the feeling that I'm not alone! -- Allan

  19. Cambrian Model Aysheaia

    This is another of my Burgess shale replicas
  20. Cambrian Models

    This is my most recent sculpture I have made. I sculpt the original in clay. It usualy takes me a few months to complete a sculpture. When I am happy with the piece, I make a silcone mold of it. With the mold, I am able to cast a model in Urethane plastic. Once it is cast I can clean up the piece and I can airbrush it.
