Yesterday I presented
several full scale models of prehistoric reptiles. Today, some scale models are presented.
Camarasaurus (Fig. 1) is a Late Jurassic sauropod.
Mosasaurus, or is this Tylosaurus (Fig. 2)? I can’t remember. The belly is sitting on a ‘rock’.
Tapinocephalus (Fig. 5) is an herbivorous tapinocephalid, close to Moschops.
These were produced
back in my heyday, as models for paintings in books, and just to see how they would turn out. Most are made of Sculpey over a wire frame. After baking the soft clay turns into a hard plastic. So far these all remain on my shelves.
