Combined Graphics3D with Separate PlotRange?

I have two figures that I would like to show in the same combined figure.
However, one of them I only want to show portion of them. Is it possible? I
tried using the option "PlotRange", but the "Show" command still showed the
whole range when combined. That is,

fig1Plot=Show[fig1, PlotRange-> {small range}];
fig2Plot=Show[fig2, PlotRange->{bigger range};


Show[fig1, fig2]

still plots the whole range of the figures. I think it's because in the
"Show" command, the "PlotRange" options only change the size of the bounding
box to shadow out those unwanted regions of the figures, but didn't really
cut it off.

I would appreciate if someone could give me some pointers.

Thanks in advance.
