Diluvium IV at Oshkosh

Here’s a sneak peek at one of the surprises that will be unveiled at the “Return to Dinotopia” exhibition at the Oshkosh Public Museum in Wisconsin. The exhibit opens November 3rd, 2007, with over 40 paintings from Dinotopia: Journey to Chandara.


Oshkosh museum exhibit technician Bill Radig has build three different miniature scenes, including the “Diluvium Model IV,” which was described on this blog August 18-24.



According to the museum’s assistant director Mike Breza, the model “was created by using pre-existing dinosaur figures, casting and modifying human figurines, fabricating the saurian turn-out gear as well as construction from scratch on the building. A high level of detail went into the miniature in order to bring to life, in a small way, one bit of Dinotopia. The miniatures might go up for sale at the end of the exhibit to help benefit the Oshkosh Public Museum."

Very cool. I wonder if they will have a working model as well. Like with spraying water n such.

Hay was in Toronto the other day but at the zoo. They even have this outdoor robotic dino display there too. The big brac gave me the feeling of being in Dinotopia. :D
