PostSubject: Paleoferroequine prehistoric mammal conversions   Fri Aug 31, 2012 10:43 am

Hi, I'm new here and I wanted to show some of my mammal conversions.
First up is a correction to the CollectA Paraceratherium. All work is with epoxy putty. The four toes are wrong so I changed it to three hooves. Then the neck was slightly shortened along with removing the Joe Camel look by moving the eyes more to the side of the head. More changes included repositiong the ears and some contour work with the head.

This is Bootherium bombifrons or Harlan's muskox, a Pleistocene relative of the tundra musk ox. This is a modified Highland bull.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Pelorovis oldowayensis occurred in sub-Saharan Africa and disappeared 800,000 years ago. The modified head came from a Papo yak on a african buffalo with longer legs.

Stephanorhinus kirchbergensis, Merck's rhino. Modified Safari Indian rhino.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
And now for something completely different. A dinosaur. Rubeosaurus ovatus to be exact. This is a massive rebuild of the Papo Pachyrhinosaurus. Something of whimsy I guess since it's doubtful that a dino could do this.  But I think it looks neat and it's one of my favorites.

That's it for now.  I'll post more tomorrow. Enjoy and thank you.

I'm impressed! What a Face I was already with the paraceratherium but your artistic vein is patent in the dino. cheers
I also love specially the great work you performed transforming a ordinary bull in a woodland musk ox, very beautiful! Very Happy
Curious also your Merck's rhino, I suppose he need some fur? See here this Hausser Elastolin "Indian rhino" from Kikimalou's collection! If we remove the folding... study ... Maybe they wanted to make a Merck's rhino too? scratch Very Happy

PostSubject: Paleo's new custom prehistoric mammals, page 3 Sivatherium giganteum Nov 17 2014   Wed Oct 29, 2014 5:02 am

Haven't shown much for awhile, just busy in the store and stuff. But here are a few new conversions.
First up is
Megacerops kuwagatarhinus  1/35 scale made from Mojo Brontotherium. Lived in North America in late Eocene (38–33.9 mya). 3m tall. Enlarged the zygomatic arches(behind the eyes) which I did on all my brontothere conversions. Also reworked the horns and head position.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Titanotylopus nebraskensis   1/35 scale  endemic to North America from the Miocene through Pleistocene 10.3 mya—300,000 years ago.  Converted from Papo Bactrian camel. 3.5m tall

 [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Indohyus major   1/9 scale. There is an unknown deer in here somewhere. Rolling Eyes

This is an extinct [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] known from Eocene fossils in Asia. About 18 inches (45cm) tall. It belongs to the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] which may be a sister group to whales ([You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]). However not all agree, some paleontologists place Indohyus with the group including the entelodonts and Andrewsarchus. Andrewsarchus itself is problematic since only a skull and a few fragments have been recovered and it's appearance is unknown.

Embolotherium grangeri   1/35 scale brontothere that lived in Mongolia during the late Eocene period. Mojo brontotherium. 3m in height.

Ken, it is just great that you decided to show some of your works again. Although those you made from Mojo brontotherium are more impressive and more expectable to see as replicas. I enjoy particularly, as an idea, the Indohyus, just an unusual creature! cheers

PostSubject: Paleo's new custom prehistoric mammals(Wednesday Nov.29 2014)    Thu Oct 30, 2014 12:35 am

I'm now showing some more brontotheres. Although they resemble rhinos, they're  a bit closer to horses. They lived around 56–34 million years ago, until the very close of the Eocene. The first two are from baby rhinos with a forth toe added and reworked heads.

Metatitan relictus   1/35 scale. Inner Mongolia late Eocene 1.5m tall
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Telmatherium validus 1/35 scale. North America late Eocene. Almost identical Metatelmatherium lived in both N. America and  Inner Mongolia. About 1.25m tall

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]


Aktautitan hippopotamopus  1/35 scale. From Kazakhstan late Eocene. Although it has short legs like Hippopotomus it most likely was not aquatic like Hippos. Made from Mojo Brontotherium 2.5m tall
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Duchesneodus uintensis 1/35 scale. North America late Eocene. Made from Mojo tapir. Body reworked, new head. 1.75m tall.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Protitan grangeri  1/35 scale. 
Inner Mongolia late Eocene. Schleich tapir with reworked back and new head. 2m tall.

   Thank you for looking at them. Very Happy

Candiacervus spp. IIa, b and c. 1/9 scale. Made from Papo Chamois body and Collecta stag head.This deer lived on the island of Crete between the late Middle and Late Pleistocene, which means between 0.3 and 0.01 million years ago. There were eight morphotypes ranging in size from 40cm up to 165cm. The two smallest C.ropalophorus and C.spp. IIa, b and c were the smallest with body proportions more like goats with shorter legs. They also had very long simplified antlers. The taxonomy of these deer is in dispute with some placing all eight within Candiacervus  while others have the  three largest in Cervus and the two smallest in Megaloceros (subgenus Candiacervus) and spp. II is rolled into M.ropalophorus. 18 to 20 inches(about 50cm).
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Hoplitomeryx sp.  1/9 to 1/20 scale. Made from unknown body(can someone I.D. it?) and a Safari pronghorn head narrowed in muzzle, new nose and mouth and canines and the eyes were moved forward and down. Lived on the former [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] during the Miocene and the Early Pliocene, now a peninsula[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] on the east coast of South Italy. Like Candiacervus this deer like ruminant contains four size groups from tiny to huge. This cervid has horns not antlers, they don't shed just like pronghorns, the largest was the height of an elk but gracile. It shared the island with giant hamsters, giant eagles, and  giant barn owls, along with the last of the European crocodiles.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Pseudodiplacodon progressum (= Diplacodon elatus)  1/35 scale. Native to North America late Eocene. Made from tapir body with new head. 2m tall.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Ningxiatherium euryrhinus  1/35 scale. Large elasmothere rhino from the Linxia Basin in northwestern China found in the early Bahean, which corresponds to the early Vallesian (MN 9), ca. 11.1 Ma. Made from Mojo white rhino. 2.2m tall
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Rhinotitan andrewsi  1/35 scale. Inner Mongolian late Eocene brontothere. Made once again from Mojo Brontothere. 2.5m tall
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Megacerops coloradensis 1/35 scale.  North America late Eocene. Modified Papo black rhino. 2.5m tall.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Ampelomeryx ginsburgi  Palaeomerycidae discovered in Montreal-du-Gers Gers in France. Lived in the Miocene epoch (between 23 and 5 million years ago).Palaeomerycidae were probably probably ancestral to deer and musk deer. Made from sable body and new head.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Proboscidipparion sinense   A derived, large- to giant-sized form of the three-toed hipparionine horse with a special muzzle structure, might have prefered living in an area with abundant water, same as tapirs which have a similar nasal structure. Found in lower part of the Early Pleistocene Wucheng Loess at Shitougu of Nalesi Town, Dongxiang County, Gansu Province. Their distribution was limited to northern China, but recent studies expanded its distribution as far as to England. Made from Schleich zebras with extra toes and reworked nose. 1.79m tall.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

If you will notice the nasal process far back on the skull, similar to a moose or saiga.

Love to follow this thread with great presentations and reowrked figures. We learn a lot here. cheers
I can't identify the body of the figure you're asking and it is great to see another Mojo brontotherium. Laughing

   Thank you, I'm still working on more right now. I think the Hoplitomeryx body was from a CollectA waterbuck.
With so few prehistoric mammals made, I have to make do and convert. I was very glad to see Mojo release theirs. The brontothere is pretty good although I don't think the neural spine hump is big enough but adequate.  The head looks more like a rhino, the zygomatic arch is missing, large brotothere heads are very wide. I can do complete figure sculpts but for some reason I find it a challenge to piece together from existing models. Maybe I'm lazy!

Love to follow this thread with great presentations and reowrked figures. We learn a lot here. cheers
I can't identify the body of the figure you're asking and it is great to see another Mojo brontotherium. Laughing
   Thank you, I'm still working on more right now. I think the Hoplitomeryx body was from a CollectA waterbuck.

Maybe not lazy, only you have fun studying existing figures and try to figure what to make with them. Sculpting would always give you the chance of making molds and some of us could have the opportunity of having some of your sculptures. Very Happy
Your feedback about Mojo brontothere is interesting, Mojo used to listen collectors opinion. I don't believe they'll replace it soon but there's always the chance of a little update as they made with the moose, Arabian horse, etc.
I don't have this particular Mojo, I have the hyeaenodon, daeodon and smilodon. I think they are in average superior when compared with their prehistoric reptiles.
Hard to see a CollectA waterbuck there, but who knows... scratch Very Happy I hope we'll have the chance of seeing your next projects. bounce

And just when I thought prehistoric mammals can't get more bizarre...
Great work on your customization, its nice to see some prehistoric mammals in toy form. I especially enjoy your species choice, as they are quite unique- like your Frankentherium Very Happy

Here's a skull of Megacerops from the top. Probably wider that I even make them.

Really wide, has CollectA featured it correctly? scratch
Thanks for posting these images, they're useful. Very Happy

Yes they did pretty good with the head. Better than Mojo. On the other hand the Mojo one fits better with my other figures in scale and it's no trouble to add the zygomatic arches since the head is being modified anyway.

   Thank you. Yes, they aren't well known at all. Normally I wouldn't do prehistoric horses since aside from three toes on some and slight head differences there isn't as much variety. So when I saw Proboscidipparion I knew I had to do it.

Here's a non-mammal obviously. 

Mystriosuchus planirostris  1/20 scale. It is an extinct genus of [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] that lived in the Late Triassic[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (middle Norian[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] 215 mya) in Europe. Papo gharial with mods to head; moved nostrils to top of head moved eyes down and enhanced teeth. Also the tall vertical scutes along the tail were reduced to one row. I'm sure there are some things wrong in this conversion, but it looks the part. 4m long.
