Was this drawing based on the reconstructed long-tailed skeleton from Stuttgart?

on second thought, your metoposaurs fit the bill, lungs=scales of course, but these look leathery as if scales were secondarily lost, or under the skin.

As with dinosaurs, bald or scaly forms of even transitional creatures is possible, even likely. Solnhofen was apparently arid, so possibly compsognathus was scaley, and as such, mastodonsaurus could have had leathery skin, seeing as tropical climates tend to favor non-overlapping scales or plain none at all, to avoid infection.

Skin of Mastodonsaurus was most probably scaleless, because on big capitosaurs we don't know scales (even on belly region).

Russian capitosaurs is known jnly by skulls and some pieces of postcrania. About skin of capitosaurs - see, for example, original description of Paracyclotosaurus by DMS Watson: some little scales was found, but not overlapped. Also exists article of F. WITZMANN (2006) about temnospodyl scalation.

So the two front teeth went into holes different from the nostrils?

Weird: I wonder what purpose piercing its own jaw like that served.

Very interesting that in old reconstructions (for example,on Z. Burian picture)this holes is not seen. In others capitosaurs this holes not perforated (lower "fangs" not so big).

Maybe it was to help keep the jaw shut tight once it snapped prey?

Maybe... So, in Trematosaurus (according to E. Case, 1946)can be identical perforations on snout, but in pictures I can't find it.
