Bothriolepis - 3D Printed, Hand Painted Model


Bothriolepis is an extinct placoderm of the Late Devonian period (360 mya). It had a heavily armoured body and distinctive spine-like pectoral fins and grew up to 500 mm in length. This highly detailed model (155mm long - scale 1:3) is made of gypsum and has been created by paleoartist Bruce Currie.

After initial printing the model undergoes a secondary process that enhances surface quality, accentuates colouration and provides protection against UV damage and handling. This model also receives a small amount of hand finishing before being packaged and shipped along with a detailed information card.
