Shapeways 1/40 Coronosaurus
Late Cretaceous Period
"Don't mess with Momma!"


The Coronosaurus lived in the area now known as Alberta, Canada during the Late Cretaceous period. Coronosaurus is unique among ceratopsians in possessing a spiked frill and a number of accessory horns on the frill and over the eyes.

I like to look online and find a color pattern I like. In this case I found one for a similar dinosaur and applied it to my Coronosaurus. This particular printing was done nose to tail and had "printing rings" around it which I could not remove with sanding. It is visible on the completed model. Also this model absorbed the paint faster than other builds. Must be a different type of plastic. Otherwise a fun building and sharpening my skills to paint my more expensive dinosaurs. I thought I would add a little bit of humor making it look like its protecting its nest.
