1/40 Stegosaurus ungulatus- Released
« on: November 18, 2012, 09:15:39 PM »
No photos to post yet, just an armature built so far. Just wanted to start a thread for this figure so I can just upload photos when I can.

We'll need a new attacking Allosaurus to go with it I'm thinking.. ;D

No, He can use that Active Ceratoesaur sculpt to go with this.

I have to say.. SO !?   T-Rex VS Triceratops is cliche but it's still a hugely popular image.   Malcolm does have another Ceratosaur planned as well...so maybe it could be two Ceratos VS a Stego VS an attacking Allosaurus. Talk about an awesome diorama scene.   :)

Interesting choice of Stegosaurus species :) How about a browsing pose, with some ferns or shrubs on the base?

I figured it would be a little different to do this stegosaur instead of the standard. I had thought of making it on its hind limbs, but just went ahead with a more standard pose first.

I don't think standing stegosaurs are too played out yet.  One that was rearing and attacking though.. :D Just tossing out ideas here.

It looks lovely so far, very elegant :) I found the following article, when you get around to detailing the hands: http://blogs.smithsonianmag.com/dinosaur/2010/11/stegosaurs-walked-like-sauropods/
Also, there's this little post about stegosaur neck armor: http://archosaurmusings.wordpress.com/2011/10/17/gular-armour/

Quite possibly stuff you'd already known, but I thought it couldn't hurt :)

Wow. I have to agree with Pixelboy. I'm tempted to buy this just on these pics and imagining what it will eventually look like !

I think it feels a bit more elegant than the Safari one. Maybe even sexy ? ;D

Why bring up the green and red color scheme ? Malcolm might just do it now.. it is getting toward Christmas ! lol

I wonder if it is a valid species?

"...Maidment et al. (2008) reviewed the known Stegosaurus material and concluded that all of the differences between specimens could be accounted for by intraspecific variation. All specimens previously described as Stegosaurus were therefore either referred to Stegosaurus armatus or considered to be indeterminate..." (Maidment 2010)

If it is a S. armatus, I wonder if the number of plates on the back are still correct?

I am not sure myself. I based it on Gregory Paul's reconstruction in his Princeton Field Guide. Well whatever, this one is finished sculpting, and I think it turned out real nice, will post photos of the finished clay sculpt when I can do so.

I see, you've mainly swapped the position of the back legs (although now it becomes an unusual step phase, maybe it's posing instead of walking...) and curved the body a bit. Oh well, you've finished sculpting the animal already.
