1/1 Rhamphorhynchus
« on: May 04, 2012, 06:58:12 AM »
Here are photos showing armature for a 1/1 Rhamphorhynchus model. The wingspan is approx. 48 inches- not the largest that this animal reached, I think they got up to just about a wingspan of 72 inches, but large enough to be an adult I think.

It looks great - I love the arching wings. Can't wait to see how this one comes along.

Awesome! Are you going to "fur" it? When will your new sculpt be up for sale by the way?

The head is great! Wondering what the wings will look like.

Malcolm's 1/40 pterosaurs have been great looking in the past wings and all..I just considered this way scaled up ! ;D

I hope you do some different poses as well..I'd love to have a flying and a perched one for my park. ;)

They have indeed, and I imagine the detail level on this beast will be a bit higher than those, too :) Looking forward to seeing how this guy turns out. You're planning to include its pycnofibres, yes?

Build (or Buy) a solid roof cage, put some fake fish in it to make it like a  zoo animal

A true Dinosaur fan loves dinosaurs for what they are, not what he/she wants them to be.

That could work...especially with a perched one !   ;D  Maybe I should just build an aviary ? ;) :)

Actually if it's fiberglass it should be cool...  ^-^
