Tupuxuara: thoracic vertebrae and the notarium, part 2

orphan_w_pterosaur

I finished the first two thoracic vertebrae, which completes the notarium. This is vertebra no. 2 before covering with arcylic resin.

Here it is after the resin and coffee stains, in place with vertebra no. 1 which is still under construction.

I had a good frontal view of vertebra no. 1, since it is the first one in the notarium. Here I am working on the rib (which is hollow).

Vertebra no. 1 required a lot of work, and adjustments. These are views from the front and back before adding the layer of resin.

Here are views of the six thoracic vertebrae disconnected. This is the rear view.

And this is the front view.

I won’t permanently connect the bones yet. This is a dorsal view of the notarium:

And a ventral view:

And here are some pictures of the notarium connected to the neck.
