Discovering Imaginary Pterosaur #4

In the foam sheet where I dug out the Tupandactylus (which is still under construction), there was another pterosaur. This is probably an unknown species and I will comment about it later. It is a dsungaripterid pterosaur, related to the Chinese Dsungaripterus. But it seems to have no teeth! Well, maybe we will find out later that it is something else, but this is the Imaginary Pterosaur project, so finally we imagined something like this.

Two halves, already cut out. From there, I trimmed the foam at an angle to attach the lower edges of the mandible, and the upper edges of the beak. Then I separated the rear crest so I could later add some foam to make a better 3D head.

A bit of folding and we have something in 3D. That was only about an hour and a half of work.

Next day, after working a bit on the Tupandactylus, I cut out the insides of the head, molded a bit more and now have another skull to work on.

Here is what Pterosaur #4 looks like after fitting the mandible.

Today I expect to finish the foam parts of both the Tupandactylus and this still unnamed Dsungaripterid. If both are done before Friday, I might have time to begin my search for the fifth Imaginary Pterosaur.
