    I finally finished an ancient cephalopod sculpture! This one is Cameroceras in 24th scale. The shell is about 9 inches long. In life, that would make it in the order of 18 feet long. The swimmer is a Preiser G scale. I think it helps to have something familiar for comparison. Ten arms no suckers. Painted with acrylics. Sculpted out of Apoxie Sculpt. Not being very imaginative I gave Cammy a modern nautilus coloration.
