If any remember, several months ago I was working on articulating a male white tail deer skeleton. I've recently had some time to work on it again and it seems it's done degreasing. It's been a big learning experience for me doing such a large animal for my first articulation. I've got all of the legs pinned and glued, the vertebrae is complete, and I have both back legs up. The only issue I'm having atm is how to attach the ribs and the skull. Could anyone give me some tips? Here are some pictures of my progress so far, I'm trying to put him in a slow walking/watching pose. Some of the ribs are shattered and I repaired them the best I could but some are missing the top that attaches to the vertebrae. He was killed by a car I believe, since I found him close to a highway. I also am not attaching the sternum to the rib cage. If you can tell in the pictures, the tops of two vertebrae have been broken and healed over. I found a bullet among the bones when I found him and I'm guessing he had been shot in the back before but survived. Deer sure are good survivors, poor guy must have had a bad backache.
