Is that the concept drawing to the Animas aureus modela? :)

It can be, it's very much what I had intended though it's head is tilted rather than strait on, we could always do it like that though

Dude it looks awsome.   Only thing I suggest changing on the actual model is the jaw would not be as wide and maybe make the lifted foot touch the ground.

If that's what you want, so you want it walking and not running? That would ad to stability,
And that jaw width is somewhat based on Scott harmans illustration, but we can tone it down.

What ever width is more plausible for the mouth is fine.     I figured I don't want it to look like it's really screaming for no apparent reason.    I will pm details later (I'm out of town and on my phone)

Is that a Torvosaurus gurneyi?It looks really good,though I would oersonally leave the mouth closed if you want a running pose.Also,what about adding some feathers?Torvosaurus was a megalosaur,from the same family as Sciurumimus,which was feathered.

Yes that was the general genus being aimed at, and the mouth is only open because it intends to drop the hammer on something, I wouldn't imagine it running mouth agape most of the time, and I don't mind feathers on even the largest theropods, but this time I didn't, just imagine if you'd like that it's recent severe irregular molt,

I'm going by the consensus that sciurumimus was a colurosaur. So I had the torvo  made in scales.

Precisely Dino-mange, brought on by mites, a sort of Dino-mite

Since I was busy with various things including sculpting I did not get to make a diorama but for fun here is something simple with Asilisaurus

Kentucky, we have Cretaceous soil but no one has really gone looking for dinosaurs, so the whole dinosaurs/Cretaceous chapter is extrapolated from dinosaur finds in neighboring states, so the third chapter is a day for Appalachiosaurus.

I've been very tempted to make an Appalachiasaurus for the Park here, but I just can't it all worked out in my head, there's the lack of fossil arms issue, if it has tiny two clawed hands it would be pretty similar to my juvenile Gorgosaurus.

Yes as I recall they had originally pegged it with powerful 3 clawed arm but then suddenly did a 180, I supposed based on some cladistic analysis. Which would be interesting as it would put appalachiosaurus and whatever predicated dryptisaurus in the same general area where they would have had run-ins.

But in general I wanted to cover several time periods/animals in the state
Chronologically:
Cameroceras
Edestus
Appalachiosaurus
Megalonyx

All predicated by the fact that when I was growing up no one could really tell me what animals lived close to home. As interesting as the dinosaurs in Texas or Montana it is very rewarding to be able to talk about your on home in the grand scale of time.
