Moa were a group of large, flightless birds that lived in New Zealand until their extinction around 1500 AD. They were one of the largest bird species to have ever existed, and some species stood up to 12 feet tall.
- Moa were herbivores and had a wide range of beak shapes that allowed them to feed on different types of vegetation.
- They were flightless due to their large size and had strong legs that allowed them to run and jump over obstacles.
- Moa were hunted by the Maori people, who arrived in New Zealand around 1000 AD, and their extinction is largely attributed to overhunting.
- The extinction of the moa had a significant impact on the ecosystems of New Zealand, as they had played an important role in shaping the island’s vegetation and habitats.
- Today, the remains of moa provide important information about the evolution and ecology of flightless birds and the impact of human activity on prehistoric species.

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.
