Here we see a Hawksbill Sea Turtle replica mold that can be used to create blanks ready for paint. This figure has been sculpted with supervision by the biological team at the Fisheries Division of the NOAA (National Oceans Atmospheric Administration). The result is a hyper-realistic replica that is used today in teaching and training. You can have one! The paint jobs on these models are impressive and multi-layered. The carapice is approximately 14" long on this model. The base material is urethane and considered very tough. These models can even go in the water!
You can buy one already painted and ready to display: Hawksbill Sea Turtle Replica
