hello everyone. i am making one hell of a announcement. i weighed my options and decided to do something crazy. not only is it a large model, i'm doing a 1: 1 scale paper model replica of one of my favorite dromaeosaur species. the theropod i'm doing is bambiraptor feinbergi. bambiraptor was a small maniraptoran related to creatures such as dromaeosaurus and deinonychus. it also share close relations to our modern theropods, the birds. it was feathered and is even thought to have been able to fly/ glide for certain distances. i'm basing my model on the holotype, which is described to have been roughly 90 cm or 35 inches in in total length. i'm working off of known material from sed skeleton. but it is important to note that the holotype of bambiraptor( which is also the only specimen, p.s. that is unless the evidence presented quite recently marks sauronornitholestes as a synonymous taxon) is believed to have not been fully grown. so it is likely that bambirapter was larger as it reach maturity. i already drew out the plans from various sources such as scott hartmans beautiful skeletal restorations a skull restoration from Burnham, 2004. museum mounts and finally, various drawings so i could have an idea of it's muscles, external anatomy, feathers and possible color schemes. wish me luck on this endeavor.
