Rex
Well, in light of recent developments in the scientific literature I felt compelled to make some adjustments to the Tyrannosaurus. With much trepidation I have commenced removing the feather work that I put so many hours into. It might seem crazy, but I realized that my sculpture would be more flexible if I do naked skin first. If the scientific literature swings back in favor of feathers it will be much easier to add feathers to the naked body. I have no intention of adding spikes or other crazy dragon like structures. As of now there is no evidence supporting such structures. I am not planning on getting into a debate over the veracity of the new paper that is for other places. But have no fear my fine feathered friends, I have a feeling feathers on Tyrannosaurids will make a comeback.

Terrific work! Your sculptures are exceptional and you do a very good job conveying weight and natural skin folds. Keep up the good work!

When will the giga be available for the etsy shop and how much estimated? Also what about the carcharodontosaurus? Will you ever make that one in the future?

Hi, I'm not sure the big Giganotosaurus will ever really be something that I can sell. The cost of molding and casting is very expensive, as well as shipping something that big in one piece. It ends up costing more than most people are willing and or able to pay. I'm guessing shipping for a built one would run well over 100$ on top of the cost of the model. Even if I sold it as a kit it would still be pretty expensive. That isn't to say it could never happen but the right set of conditions would have to happen for it to become a reality.
