    I'm setting up a small raised bog CP exhibit at the aquarium where I work (Atlantis Marine World) and I was thinking it would be cool to have some larger-than-life cp models for people to get a closer look at the workings of a trap (perhaps cross sections). It seems to me I've seen something like this before at a museum, but I can't remember where. Preliminary searches have turned up nothing. Does anyone have any suggestions as to where I might find something like this?

    Thanks,
    Todd

    Try contacting the Carolina Biological Supply Co. in North Carolina. They usually have many CP related items.

    Back in late 2003/2004 I created this urethane Nepenthes inermis pitcher model kit and a jungle diorama used in the box art photo using silk plants and logs and stuff and sold a few:


    I would have loved to create a whole line of kits of every species trap but they didn't sell well enough to justify making the molds for new species.
    Gneerlly speaking,CP growers aren't modellers and modellers aren't CP growers!

    I did a forum search and found topics by elgecko and Rubra, who both had pictures of bladderworts in action. Unfortunately, their pictures are no longer being hosted on the forums. You may want to contact them directly.

    P.S. - Did you happen to mention to your brother, Billy, about me (Scott Straus)?

    If anyone wants a model made of a CP let me know. I'm a sculptor and would gladly trade my work for some CP's. I use super sculpey III for a nice, hard, plastic finish.

    CPRUS have you got a website? I'd love to see your work!
    My personal work site is:
    ToyRiot.com

    Ever tried Super Sculpey mixed with Premo sculpey? It can hold a lot more details and be tooled after baking a lot easier than sculpey III. Ever tried toy sculptors wax such as Azbro or TMS?

    Don't have a site yet, I'm currently completing several projects out of sculpey and wax. Never tried toy sculptors wax before but it seems like something I should try. Great stuff you have there though. Are you self taught or did you take classes?
