OZZY' FOR SHORT! OUR NEWEST DINOSAUR ON THE BLOCK AVAILABLE IS THIS SMALLER VERSION - IN A GELCOAT FINISH
Approximate dimensions 135 X 20 X 56 cms
Approximate Weight 6KG
Australovenator is the most complete skeleton of a meat-eating dinosaur ever found in Australia. It was described in 2009 as light of weight and built for speed, and placed in a brand new genus of theropod dinosaur.
This was Australia's first really big predator, about six metres long and actually a medium-sized cousin of the Allosaurus.
The partial skeleton was found at the bottom of a billabong near the town of Winton, Queensland. Close by was the skeleton of a large sauropod dinosaur. It's tempting to think that the Australovenator may have been eating the carcass when it got stuck in the mud and couldn't get out.
Please note the Gelcoat version is the one that we recommend for outdoor use.
If you would like to discuss the difference in finishes, please give us a call.
The traditional method is a resin/fiberglass statue, followed by a primer, a latex paint and finally a clear PU topcoat but this procedure has a limited life span outdoors.
'Our new procedure will be a gelcoat casting followed by the application of gelcoat finishing materials. The pigments form an intrinsic part of the statue and not just a thin layer on top so will withstand the harsh elements much better'.
