Pterodactylus kochi skeletal by jconway Pterodactylus kochi skeletal by jconway
Something I've been planning to do for years, a skeletal of the Pterodactylus specimen I have a cast of. It's still not as accurate in the details as I would like (your really need the real specimens and a microscope to pin joint details down, for example), but overall it's reasonable.

didn't you forget the soft tissue crest on the black silhouette? i have seen a few skeletals done like that, so i'm just asking =P (the link shows something that looks like a low crest on the head actually, so the bigger was the surprise - if it isn't a shadow only)
it looks great non the less, i really like the impressions of the airsacks in the membranes, if that's what the grey is supposed to be ;-)
great job man!

Just a question; in this pic (and in this one [link]), you depict Pterodactylus' torso are relatively big [by pterosaur standards, and yet in assuming the Pterodactylus picture is yours, it has a much smaller body.

Is the size of Pterodactylus' torso speculative or is there evidence to state this picture is outdated? (and yes, I realise it is in the fact that the animal has no crest in here)

Actually, I think the two are consistent in their torso/wing ratios. The proportions aren't perfect in either of them, of course.

coolness! Well I guess I'll see you there then. :)

That is if I get enough money to go...but the meeting seems to be too good of an opportunity to pass.

I didn't see any of your work that I remember, though a skeletal might have slipped me by...

Everything is expensive in London! If you coming here I could put you up for a while if you like. I'm away for three weeks starting Friday, but after that any time is fine. If you're coming sooner the tube runs until about 11:30pm, and is your best bet from Heathrow, otherwise taxis are going to cost you £25+, or perhaps a lot more, depending on here you're going. i would say gererally what you lose on a more convenient flight you make up for by being able to take to tube.
