Museum Line Dimetrodon Model Reviewed

One of the new additions to the Museum Line scale model range of prehistoric animals has been reviewed by team members at Everything Dinosaur.  It is always a pleasure to see a new model added to the range of prehistoric animals offered by the German manufacturer Bullyland, especially since Dimetrodon (D. grandis) is one of our favourite Permian animals.

Dimetrodon was not a dinosaur, but a member of the Pelycosaurs (synapsid reptile).  Why Dimetrodon is often featured in a model range that focused on dinosaurs always puzzles us.  Perhaps manufacturers just like to add a cool sail-backed reptile to their model series.

We did once write an article on this phenomenon – Dimetrodon being added to models of dinosaurs etc.  To read this article: Why Does Dimetrodon Get Added to Dinosaur Model Ranges
