@ziggycardon has seen already, but for those who haven’t seen yet, here is my favorite replica, Dryptosaurus claw. The original specimen is at the Academy of Natural Sciences, Philadelphia.

Got a nice new replica today! 
A Tyrannosaurus rex manus claw on a display stand! 

I got it as a gift for being a good costumer from the paleoartist where I buy most of my replica's :)

Yeah I thought the same thing, a big piece like this just wouldn't be complete without a little model :)

Oh I how could I forget this beauty.

 

A really detailed cast of one of the teeth of Stan the T. rex which I got at the BHI.

Psittacosaurus Skeleton 

it was painted and mounted by myself. I got it from the owner of a dinosaur replica company . It is made up of slightly second casts. The owner thought it was to good to throw away.

Psittacosaurus baby skeleton. Mounted and painted by me. I kinda don't like the look of the stands though, so I might revisit this one in the future.

It looks like I also have the same cast as @Bobby Rico of an adult Psittacosaurus. I've had it for a while but I haven't gotten around to painting and mounting it. Though I have separated a bunch of the vertebrae so that I can put it in a different more dynamic pose.

Where did you two get that Psittacosaurus skeleton cast? Looks like an awesome project!

Here's my full scale Velociraptor skull

Here's a cast of an Allosaurus claw, with the original residing in the Natural History Museum of Utah. The original suffered a break at the tip, so the cast is split in the same location to reflect the actual specimen!

I got the baby skeleton at Dinocasts.com and the grown skeleton from Triassica.

Wow, that's one of the most realistic replica's I've ever seen!

The detail of the serrations is amazing.

Here is my replica of a Deinonychus second toe claw.  I bought this from the LA natural history museum shortly after watching Jurassic Park in theaters and I thought for the longest time it was the claw of a Velociraptor.  Now that google has made leaps and bounds in image search, I realize this is now a Deinonychus claw.  Really cool piece.  

 

I wonder if anyone here knows which side is medial and which is lateral?  It would be nice to know which foot this came from.  :dinosmile:

We can compare it with my Velociraptor claw replica on the first page that also includes the phalanges. When I compare mine with photos of Velociraptor feet it looks like I have the toe of the right foot. Yours seems to be the mirror image, so it would be the left one.

Yes, that's a great idea.  I agree- mine looks like the mirror image hence the left.  Your 3D image is very helpful.  Thanks for your help!

Here's a little cast I finished today of a Hyracodon (Oligocene, White River Formation) jaw fragment that someone brought in the other day for ID.  I made a mold of silicone rubber, cast with 2-part epoxy, and painted with Walmart acrylics.  Not perfect, but I'm happy with it.  Cast shown next to actual fossil:

You've captured the color scheme of the genuine quiet well on the cast :)

I do really like this thread. It does really give respect to some really nice replicas that are affordable to the collector who lives out of geological and financial range of the actual specimen that are portrayed . Enjoyable indeed  :dinothumb:

Thank you.  Yeah, color matching is by far the hardest part :)

I did it is massive and the Griswolds car picture made me laugh.  what you did with  a tiny part of that tree trunk is really cool. I think just owning a piece of wood even just 2” square with the time frame known is a curiosity in it’s self.please let us know how happy your freind is on receiving your beautiful gift.

Lol.  I love the Griswold's. I'll let you know when I hear from Sister.  Tracking says it has been delivered, but I'll probably have to wait on snail mail for reply. I don't think she uses email.:(

Yes, very cool to see all the replicas.. most are quite realistic looking.  The only way I'll ever afford a dinosaur skull is the plastic version, which isn't a bad thing.  Scientists would probably make better use of it than me.  :dinosmile:

 

@LordTrilobite When are you going to mount your adult Psittacosaurus?  The price ain't too bad for them and I'm sort of interested in taking a stab at it myself.

That might still be a while. I haven't gotten around to it yet. I did a lot of work on the skull, drilling through some of the filled in areas to expose the skull arches nicely. I've also separated many of the vertebrae so that I can bend the spine. And the feet were missing a few phalanges that I had to sculpt. I still need to paint the skeleton too before I mount it.

Here is my newest replica of my collection. 
A juvenile Ichthyosaurus communis skeleton of which the original was found in Somerset in the UK (around 200 million years old).

I am a bit surprised by the details on the specimen, they really nailed to give it a realistic look! :)
