Víctor Martínez Nouvilas (MolochBaal) has created a beautiful copy of the copy of Dippy, a diplodocus skeleton found in Wyoming in 1899. Plaster copies were donated to a number of Natural History Museums all over the world. Víctor built this to celebrate the 100th birthday of the Museum of Natural Science in Madrid’s copy of Dippy, which was finished on December 1st, 1913.
This fantastic dinosaur diorama by flickr user TMM seems a fitting model to blog, since I’m just about to go check out the new 3D release of Jurassic Park (can you believe it’s been 20 years?). I love the mottled reddish coloring on the fin that TMM has achieved just through simple plate stacking, and of course the shaping is spot on.
I think most of us enjoy a good dinosaur model, and ∆TMM∆ provides tonight’s Cretaceous offering. If you’re a fan of Spinosaurus, check out Mike Psiaki’s version from June of 2009.
