Pricing and information about our whale models

Human Dynamo are the only company in the world to be offering made-to-order high quality and hyperreal specimen models of whales. 

The model is 1:18 scale and we are currently developing a smaller size option. 

Each whale we make is an individual, air brushed and hand painted by a professional artist to mimic nature as closely as possible.

Some of these whales have already been installed and enjoyed at the National Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, and we have also sent whales to private clients around the world.

A little bit about our whales...

The original whale forms were sculpted by Gary Hunt and Sue Dorrington in consultation with Te Papa and the Curator Anton van Helden, consultant and expert on whale species. 

Here is a picture of the whales as they were displayed at Te Papa. As you see here the whales can be installed and mounted in various ways. 

The whales are incredibly detailed. It is difficult to get close to a real whale, or to understand their size and beauty. These models help bring us closer and can be both an educational tool or a work of art.

The whales are hollow casts from silicone moulds. They are cast from polyester resin fibreglass and hand painted/airbrushed with water based acrylic-enamels. The base is solid Kauri and stainless-steel rods, however we can provide other wood options. Clear perspex cases can be made specifically to order. 

Below are some more images of our whale models to help you get an idea of the detail and quality that goes into them.
