The maquette was used to provide a proof of concept to Steven Spielberg and using trigonometry, science and a projector, a team of 10 people dissected a casting of the 1:5 scale T. rex into slices to analyze the shape of each piece of the T. rex. From there, using the projector, each piece was exaggerated to 5 times the original size. This allowed Stan Winston Studios to create an outline of each piece of the 1:5 scale T. rex in plywood, to assemble on an aluminum and steel structure to create the inner structure of the 1:1 T. rex. After applying wire, fiberglass resin, clay, and many man-hours to the structure, the T. rex came to life as a magnificent 45′ sculpture.
Once the sculpture was completed, Stan Winston Studios was able to mold from this life-size sculpture to create the 9000-pound animatronic T. rex, seen in the film.
