Shapeways 1/40 Lythronax Roaring
Southern Utah, USA - 80 Million Years ago

Lythronax ("Gore King") was a large carnivore that could grow to an estimated 8 m (26.2 ft) in length and weighed 2.5 tonnes (5,500 lb). It lived around 80 million years ago in what is now southern Utah, USA. Lythronax teeth are said to resemble banana-shaped meat cleavers. The teeth are serrated, but also quite beefy. They weren’t just for slicing off meat, but also for inflicting damage and crushing bone. The shape of the teeth would have made Lythronax an efficient hunter. it would have been able to carve out huge chunks of flesh and bone and swallow it whole.

This is a 3D printed dinosaur from the web site shapeways.com. The good news is no seems on the finished model. The bad news is the detail is a little soft in places and occasionally some of the printing powder falls out of the interior (onto your wet paint!). This was after a thorough cleaning! I painted with Tamiya and Mig paints and used poster putty to mask the underside and stripes. Stippling was done with a sea sponge. The base is local rocks, model RR landscape materials and PE ferns.
