How Big is the PNSO Ceratosaurus Dinosaur Model?

The new for 2019 PNSO Ceratosaurus dinosaur model “Nick” is certainly making waves amongst dinosaur fans and model collectors.  Staff at Everything Dinosaur are not sure why our chums at PNSO chose to call their Ceratosaurus figure “Nick”, but all of us have been very impressed with the quality and craftsmanship demonstrated in this exceptionally large dinosaur model.

PNSO “Nick” the Ceratosaurus

How big is the PNSO Ceratosaurus?   We could get out one of our tape measures or geological rulers to show just how huge this model is, but, instead we have created a short video that compares the PNSO Ceratosaurus with the recently introduced CollectA Deluxe Ceratosaurus.  After all, a picture (or in this case a short video), is worth more than a thousand words, or so the saying goes.

Comparing the PNSO Ceratosaurus to the CollectA Deluxe Ceratosaurus

In this short video (it lasts a little over thirty seconds), we compare the PNSO Ceratosaurus dinosaur model with the CollectA Deluxe 1:40 scale Ceratosaurus, which itself is a sizeable dinosaur replica.  The CollectA Deluxe Ceratosaurus is a recently introduced model, it only came out last year.

However, the CollectA figure is dwarfed by the impressive and enormous PNSO Ceratosaurus.   The PNSO replica is one of the largest theropod figures that we have ever stocked.

Tale of the Tape – Ceratosaurus Dinosaur Models

The CollectA Deluxe Ceratosaurus is not a small dinosaur model by any means, but in our video, it looks tiny compared to the colossal PNSO Ceratosaurus.  For the statisticians amongst us here are the model measurements:

  • CollectA Ceratosaurus – length 27 cm approximately with a head height of 12 cm.
  • PNSO Ceratosaurus “Nick” – length around 58 cm approximately, with a head height of about 26 cm.

Remarkably, the base for the PNSO figure is around ten times the size of the base associated with the CollectA Deluxe Ceratosaurus.

Ceratosaurus But Which Species?

A number of species have been assigned to the Ceratosaurus genus and it is difficult to decide which species these replicas represent.  For example, do they represent C. nasicornis or perhaps C. dentisulcatus?  Whatever the species epithet, both these models are most impressive, but the PNSO Ceratosaurus is going to need a lot more shelf space.

In terms of calculating a scale for the PNSO model, this is challenging.  The maximum size for Ceratosaurus is unknown with estimated lengths ranging from about 4.5 metres to excess of 6 metres depending on the fossil specimen and the species.  If we take the upper figure (six metres) and we estimate the length of the PNSO Ceratosaurus to be about sixty centimetres, then, based on this crude assessment, the PNSO figure is in approximately 1:10 scale.
