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).
