  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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!
  5. 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?
  6. What is this?

    Can anyone ID this?
  7. I am looking for a detailed picture of a Mosasaur skeleton. Especially the tail area, I picked up a bunch of vertebrae and I believe they are from a Mosasaur from the Oakley Kansas area and want compare them and assemble them in order.
  8. 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

  11. Fossil Wood? Or something else?

    Hi all, I recently found this on a trip to the Jurassic Coast at Dorset and have been intrigued by this find, i'm not an expert on fossil identification and was wondering if there was anything significant about this fossil. it strikes me as being either fossilised wood or an infilled burrow of some kind, however the shine, shape and downward strikes are leaving me somewhat puzzled. i would be grateful for all your potential ideas as to what this could be.

  19. Composite skeletone

    Hello all, I already posted this topic in Paleo Re-creations, but nobody answered there. I want to make a composite skeleton from an extinct animal, but I don't know witch species I take best. I already tought about Oreodont, cave bear, bison... Do you guys know an animal whose it is possible to collect all the bones (skull is not necassary, but I would love a real skull) Keichousaur is not a good example, because I want have the fun for searching, buying and making a composite. It think mammals are the only option, because reptiles are expensive and difficult to collect all the bones, maybe alligator is possible? What do you guys think about it? Greetings

  21. Help identifying this fossil

    Hi, We have located this fossil in our home marble floor - the marble variety is Crema Marfil (origin Spain). Is this a Trilobite?
  22. Not a fossil, but a skeleton of an extinct and rare bird... This is the first Dodo skeleton to be sold in the past 100 years. It is compositied from bones that were aquired one at a time. 346 thousand pounds is about 400 thousand dollars, in real money. =-) https://www.theguardian.com/science/2016/nov/22/rare-near-complete-dodo-skeleton-fetches-346300-pounds-auction You may already be familiar with the Dodo from the movie "Ice Age" https://www.google.com/search?q=tae-kwon-dodo&btnG=Search&hl=en&gbv=1&tbm=isch

  24. Mosasaur setup timelapse

    At the Denver show last month we were lucky enough to be able to purchase a full Mosasaur Haliasaurus Arambourgi skeleton which is 80% original. Last week we assembled him on our dining room table, and we made a time lapse movie of it for your enjoyment: This setup is only temporary. We will be getting a new pedestal for him, and repainting the room to better display him. -Brian
  25. Hello dear people, I wonder where to find information and reference-images on the postcranial skeleton of dunkleosteus or related species. You find images of their iconically armoured skulls everywhere, but not a hint of the "fishbones". Is there so little fossil record? I hope someone can give me a hint. Thanks, J
