Yes, definitely I would be interested. I'd want to add more info for my
Pterosaur FAQ page at
http://www.geocities.com/CapeCanaveral/Hangar/9020/pterosaur. I know that
Paul's model was used for a film about the history of flight (featured in
Paleoworld and National Geographic), so who owns the copyright so that I
can ask permission for a short film clip to add to my page.

I didn't know that there are now two species of Quetzalcoatlus; is it Q.
northropi and Q. sp.? And is Titanopteryx a synonym?
