AUSTRALIAN AGE OF DINOSAURS / MANUFACTURING / PROCUREMENT
Australian Age of Dinosaurs Ltd (AAOD) is a not for profit organisation located in Winton, Queensland and founded by David and Judy Elliott in 2003. The organisation’s activities include operation of the Australian Age of Dinosaurs Museum of Natural History which holds annual dinosaur digs in the Winton Formation of western Queensland and oversees the year-round operation of Australia’s most productive dinosaur Fossil Preparation Laboratory.
Since 2005, the Museum has accumulated the largest collection of Australia’s biggest dinosaur fossils in the world and holds the holotype specimens of Diamantinasaurus matildae (Matilda), Savannasaurus elliottorum (Wade), and Australovenator wintonensis (Banjo), Australia’s most complete theropod skeleton.
Dominion House identified a reputable Chinese manufacturer, with an established customer list that included Disney, and managed production of museum-quality dinosaur replicas. Dominion House arranged compliance-testing to safety standards, and carried out due diligence, during production and final random inspections to ensure quality requirements were met. 3D-printed samples, mass mouldings and hand-painted finishes combined for a perfect result.
