Miragaia is a close relative dinosaur to Stegosaurus.
The number of nail, forelimb is 2(Ⅰand Ⅱdigits), hind limb is 1(only Ⅱdigit).
I referred to Stegosaurus of Sauriermuseum Aathal for forelimb, and Gilmore 1914 for hindlimb.  Stegosauria researcher, Shoji Hayashi, gave me some advices for this work.

Allosaurus( from One Million Years B.C.(1966))


Allosaurus( from One Million Years B.C.(1966))
height 20cm

  This Allosaurus is my favorite dinosaur in Ray Harryhausen's dinosaur movies. The dinosaurs in Harryhausen's movies were my first "living" dinosaurs!
About 15 years ago, I sculpted some Harryhausen's movie monsters as original models for goods.
But that time, I wasn't able to sculpt dinosaurs.
This time, finally I was able to sculpt it as my personal work.
