I had the idea when I read the news about a new pterosaur discovered in China. The Ghost Dragon: Guidraco venator.
I had no idea about how to start. I usually build maquetes with a frame, of foam or wood, and then cover with paper. I didn’t know how to start the pterosaur, so I googled and found some diagrams of its head and body

And decided to start with the head.
