Create a half-size scale skeletal model of Australoventor Wintonesis a dinosaur from the Allosauroid species recently discovered near Winton, Queensland.
Scale measurements were taken from drawings of the skeleton and folding patterns selected to represent the various bone structures. The final design is made from 80 squares of paper using the Origami method of only folding the paper. Once the bones were completed they were linked together, then a metal rod inserted through the leg, tail, spine and neck to enable the model to stand vertically and retain its shape.
This half-sized version of the allosauroid theropod took over a hundred hours to design and build. It was then installed in the Queensland Museum to promote their ‘Lost Creatures’ exhibit 2013/2014.
