UKRD Pteranodon:
http://dinotoyblog.com/2020/10/18/pteranodon-ukrd/

I have one, and it is really ugly. But somehow I like it. I am afraid of giving it away, it won't probably find a new owner for it is so ugly ^-^

Had one as a child too, don't think I have it anymore, at least I can't find it in the attic.
To me this model pretty much confirms my suspicion that U.K.R.D. didn't have much reference to work with and the best they could gather was that one single book with Sibbick illustrations, thus some look great as they are based on that and others look odd, that being the bat wing Pteranodon and the theropod head Dimetrodon, as they were based on inferior reference material.

@Libraraptor If you want to you can send it to me, I could repaint it as the Pteranodon from Gwangi or might come up with another repaint idea, I guess that way we could trade as I'll send you the Yangchuanosaurus base so or so.

Yeah, I was wondering about their Dimetrodon too, I have it somewhere, so I'll see if I can review it...

Wait, it hasn't been reviewed yet?
I have one too in quite good condition, though I won't be at my place until next week.
Let's see which one has less paint wear.
That's not to say that I would do the review, I can leave that to you but if you want to I can provide photos of mine.

Hehe, we can exchange photos when we find them! I think most of the UKRD toys need reviews, actually, I have a bunch lying around that are not on the blog yet.
