The fish is ok, but the slab doesn’t look good.

I'm going to re-prepare the fish. The slab has been supplemented with plaster. I'm gonna get me a big slab from Kemmerer. I'll fit the fish into the slab as an inlay.

Argh. So you were the one who outbid me haha.

 

Beautiful fish man. Can't wait to see the result of the new inlay.

Wow. That's a nice fishy. Gars from the green river are very interesting. The texture of the scales is unbelievable! Any way you could give a close up of the skull? :)

Here you go. As you can see, a part of the tail and the tip of the snout are reconstructed
