The Haast’s eagle was a large, extinct species of eagle that lived in New Zealand. It had a wingspan of up to 10 feet, making it one of the largest eagles known to have existed. The Haast’s eagle lived during the late Pleistocene epoch and was a top predator of its time, feeding on flightless birds such as the moa. The eagle became extinct around 500 years ago, likely due to a combination of habitat loss and over-hunting by the Maori people, who arrived in New Zealand around that time. The Haast’s eagle is a fascinating example of island gigantism, a phenomenon where animals on islands evolve to be much larger than their mainland relatives.

Due to the inherit nature of 3D printing the miniatures might contain imperfections and could require additional cleanup where the support have been; use sand paper or green putty for example. Print layers will sometimes be visable.
3D resin is brittle, even if we use a mixture than makes it more flexible. However it cannot be compared with the normal plastic that is used for example Warhammer, Marx or Conte miniatures. Handle the 3D prints with care, a fall can break them. Glue info here.
