This highly detailed model (140 mm long x 125 mm high - scale 3:1) is made of composite gypsum and plastic materials and has been created by paleoartist Bruce Currie using state of the art 3D printing technology. After initial printing the model undergoes a secondary process that enhances surface quality, accentuates colouration and provides protection against UV damage and handling. This model also receives a small amount of hand finishing before being packaged.
