    Sea Wolf, I did use Elmer's for the skull. The glue was great but the bones were a pain to reassemble. I don't want to mess with it. Once one piece comes loose, it sets everything off. IMG_2381.jpg

    Doing well with it regardless. Does it have a future display home? Would be a shame if it has to live in the garage when done.

    It’s mostly done. I still have the dewclaws and “cartilage” (clear silicone caulk) to apply.
    next time I’d use thicker threaded rod to keep it more stable.
    my wife is letting me display it for now. Long term it will probably go in my kids’ school or the local nature center. 69D9163D-B03C-4EB5-9AD9-87F8EC18BE2A.jpeg 8544740D-D380-4D0C-907B-E740B62BD196.jpeg 53EAF5F8-2E75-4A5F-A2E1-D8F7D463AC1E.jpeg

    You know, if you put a little red, shiny ball on the nose and a red harness with some brass bells ... and some Christmas lights I bet the wife would laugh and let you keep it there. :)
