I am glad that you guys like this piece, unfortunately, this one is a commission piece, and I wont be offering it up myself. I will talk to the party who hired me up to make this and some other models for his mini golf course in FL. to see if he would be interested in partnering with me -me making these and selling them. He is only looking for one piece, which I could have made directly (without molding and casting it), but since it is going outside I preferred the durability of casting it in fiberglass, being able to cast in the colors for the most part. I am pretty much done sculpting this guy, but have it in pieces and some parts are already being molded, so I cant show the finished clay pattern. I will post photos of the final piece once it is cast and ready to go. Now on with sculpting the 1/1 Dimorphodon (he also is getting three 1/1 Compsagnathus models).

Incredible Malcolm - just wonderful!  I am glad you are getting some well-deserved commission work.  Hopefully those 1/40 beauties will generate some more of these larger requests ....

Just for clarification.  ;) On the other hand, a full-sized Dimetrodon would be rather excellent- but I think I'd prefer a smaller, more affordable one, like for the Fauna Casts line. At any rate, I'm rather looking forward to seeing the Compsognathus. Given any thought to what sort of integument you might incorporate?

I have molds for a life size Dilophosaurus head and a Yangchuanosaurus head- they are not full heads, just half heads that hang on the wall- I am hoping to make some head mounts in the future- I think that some pterosaur head mounts would be cool-

I would love to make a life size Dimetrodon, would have to have someone that wanted one to make one though-museum or something like that. I did start a 1/40 one for this line(it's small), but havent got very far with it.

The compsognathus pack will be scales and scutes-no feathers if that was what you meant. The client specifically said he wanted JP style- originally he contacted me about making a baby T.Rex and a Velociraptor, he didnt have the budget for those though, and I worked out some models he could afford. During these talks he mentioned that he wouldnt want feathered dinos as they are for a mini golf course and not a museum, and he would want dinos that the average visitor would relate to- JP.

Man..that sounds right up my alley.  Have you been able to ask the fellow if he wants to sell these ?  It could help him work toward his goal of a Velociraptor and Baby Rex which I would also love to see happen.

I'm inclined to agree with Blade there - that's the Dimorphodon from Flying Monsters 3D, yes? I'm more convinced by John Conway's restoration:
