Our work includes: specimen restoration, cast dinosaur mounting, fossil mounting, molding & casting, 3D scanning and printing of specimens, 5 axis routing, hard coat and foam fabrication, bronze and aluminum casting, sculpting, theming, prop production, concrete, rockwork, artificial trees and more. We are also home to a state-of-the-art, secure, climate controlled storage facility which was built originally for housing The Smithsonian specimens during their remounting process.
