This is a 3 dimensional puzzle which is easy to assemble. Simply match up the like numbered slots and stick it together. If the pieces are too tight simply sand the inside down with an emery board.

The overall dimensions on this are 2' wide by 14" long, by 7" tall. Which makes it significantly larger and of a superior quality to the other kits like this that I've seen. It's made from 1/8" thick plywood, so it's a bit sturdier and more significant than balsa or bass models.

It comes un-assembled as pieces (23 pieces). The first time I put one of these together it took me a good 15 to 20 minutes. But I gave a set to my nephews last year for Christmas and they had them all assembled faster than I could turn around! This one has fewer pieces than the Allosaurus kit that I also sell. And goes together faster, but it looks great hanging from the ceiling with a little thread.

This is a Pteranodon of some kind, which is similar to a Pterodactyl that everyone is familar with.

From Wikipedia (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pteranod…

Pteranodon (/tɨˈrænədɒn/; from Greek πτερόν ("wing") and ἀνόδων ("toothless")) is a genus of pterosaurs which included some of the largest known flying reptiles, with wingspans over 6 metres (20 ft). It existed during the late Cretaceous geological period of North America in present day Kansas, Alabama, Nebraska, Wyoming, and South Dakota. More fossil specimens of Pteranodon have been found than any other pterosaur, with about 1,200 specimens known to science, many of them well preserved with nearly complete skulls and articulated skeletons. It was an important part of the animal community in the Western Interior Seaway.[1]

Pteranodon was not a dinosaur. By definition, all dinosaurs belong to the groups Saurischia and Ornithischia, which exclude pterosaurs. Nevertheless, Pteranodon is frequently featured in dinosaur books and is strongly associated with dinosaurs by the general public.[2]


This can be scaled up further if you would like something bigger, which I'm happy to do.
