Jerry,

I have sent Gedelgo a message on your behalf on Deviant Art, asked if there is a way for you to contact her, and if she preferred to register here, and answer your plea herself.

Rick

Yes, thank you and welcome to the forum!
As you can see I'm halfway building your magnificient velociraptor skeleton. 😊

I was wondering how you wired the inner structure.
An connected the inner wiring from the legs to the main body?

With kind regards,

Jerry

I had one wire for the skull and vertebrae. Another running through both legs (connected at the pelvis). Two for each arm and some peripheral wires for the finger and toes.

I used 16 gauge stainless steel wire. It was fine for the arms and legs but too heavy to hold its own weight across the tail. If I were to make this project again I'd probably try using two lines of thinner wire along the vertebrae, displaced vertically, so that it had better bending resistance.

Thanks for your comment,
Did you run the skull and neck trough the ribs as well?
And the wire from the legs was punched trough the fused part of the spine an ran trough the other leg as well?
Also how did you connect the wire of the tail to the wire of the neck (and ribs?)?

Sorry for all the questions but I am wondering on how to do so.

Jerry

Jerry - a suggestion. Use "Piano" wire - from your local hobby shop maybe. This is extremely strong and does not bend easily, though it does flex under load.

May be worth a try. Go and have a look at some and see what you think....

Thanks Kevin for you suggestion.
I'll surely look into that. But can it als be bend on a certain way?
I was planning to put the animal in a " agressive striking" pose.
Alltough I don't know if it will work.

Yes, the wire can be bent. It is very springy so you cannot really bend curves, but you can bend angles with pliers. Gentle or shallow angles if you want to. However, the fact it flexes will give you curves.

So, as it is internal you can use a thinner than normal wire - this you could bend in a number of places to get the shape, leaving the rest to curve by itself. You cannot make acute bends - it will snap.

This is hard to explain - you need to actually go and see a piece and then you will understand how it would work!

I would recommend it!
