As always I will promote and REWARD the first people to post quality makes (must enable tips on your profile for reward). A quality make is a successful, complete, hopefully decent looking print at 50% scale or larger. This doesn't necessarily need painted but extra bonus if it is.
If this proves popular, I will work on some other Dinosaurs, Dragons, and Prehistoric and mythical Creatures,as well as accessories and variants of this model if requested. I could possibly do things like
the fully body,battle wounds, dino-rider armor, a wall mountable bust, a Special base. So Please post your makes, hit like, and provide feedback on what you would like to see in the comments.

.2mm layer height or better

For SLA....I have provided a version that has already been hollowed, with drain holes, at 30% scale and supports added, it is what I used for my little blue print shown in the photos. It worked great with no issues, at .05 layers on the anycubic photon with Anti aliasing enabled it took about 3 and a half hours. While it is a lot of supports the print is successful which is the main thing, and despite the supports only takes about ten minutes to trim (pre cure), Just be careful on the wings at this scale they are very very thin and I would not recommend going any smaller in scale for this reason
For FFM....good luck and sorry, I wouldn't scale down too much as the wings will become problematic. Probably best to orient this on his feet as provided to hide supports and clean up, this is a challenging print to clean up no matter how you do it... If requested in the comments I will work on splitting this model to be easier to print.
Scanned using the Einscan SP, then altered, enhanced, modified, and optimized in Meshmixer
I can not take credit for this design as it is heavily based off of the Pathfinder Battles Deep Cuts Unpainted Miniatures: Gargantuan Green Dragon, if you want to skip the print and own a high quality Dragon buy the Pathfinder Battles Deep Cuts Unpainted Miniatures: Gargantuan Green Dragon
