That's fine with me. Good luck on your project!

Shoulder blades support important muscles of the neck (e.g. the levatator scapulae and sternocleidomastoideus). And when combined with the proximal humerus (down to the deltopectoral crest)  the pectoral girdle supports not just neck muscles but important torso-stablizing muscles like the lats, the pectoralis, and the subscapularis. The fact that the shoulder blades are large in long-necked predatory theropods (even with small arms) isn't a mystery at all.

Yeah - unfortunately those sources aren't always as reliable as we'd like. I'm quite confident in the proportions of this skeletal.

Thanks for the comments, but I'm curious what are you basing your thoughts on the proportions on? I only ask because I'm _really sure_ the ones in the skeletal are correct. Past estimates (e.g. those floating around on the web) are based on older (and incorrect) measurements.
