Brachiosaurus (Safari Ltd) Dinosaur Model now Available
The 2012 Brachiosaurus replica made by Safari Ltd has arrived. Team members at Everything Dinosaur have been busy unpacking their stock of this large model of an enormous sauropod. Our chums at Safari Ltd have informed us that this new replica is in approximately 1:50 scale, the model itself measures a cool 47 cm long. It makes an excellent addition to the Carnegie Collectibles dinosaurs.

The Carnegie Museum of Natural History Dinosaurs is regarded as one of the finest mainstream collectible range of dinosaur replicas. Each model is authenticated by the palaeontologists at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History (Pittsburgh, USA), for example, the pose of this new Brachiosaurus replica with its head at a lower angle in relation to the shoulders, contrasts strikingly with older sculpts. Modern interpretations of brachiosaurid fossil remains have tended to move away from the classic “swan-neck” posture. The long, muscular tail now acts as a counter balance to the forward projecting neck, in what we at Everything Dinosaur call the “suspension bridge effect”.
This is certainly a big and colourful new Brachiosaurus model, one that we feel will be very popular with dinosaur fans and model collectors.
