Thanks! And well, I kinda don't have room for it :P Which is why I leave it in lots of boxes in my parents house most of the time.

That's pretty cool. Are you going to keep it in boxes or assemble it like a museum? Because even though it's a little on the large side it is pretty complete. So cool to see this

VERY nice!  Coelodonta antiquitatis was an impressive beast!  You have done well to amass such a collection.

Looking good, excellent project to work on and probably not many in private collections.  Are there shows you can attend to pick up the missing items?

Not really, I get everything locally here in the Netherlands. This most recent batch of bones I got from the guy from www.northseafossils.com

That’s fantastic. It’s getting to the point where you can get a frame made to display it in a lifelike position.

 

Thanks for showing.

Looks like a very ambitious project.

You seem to be well on the way to completion too!

Good fortunes in finding the rest.

Lord Trilobite,

 

I remember your posts and have wondered if you had made any progress recently.  I have given myself a similar side project, assembling a composite skeleton of Allodesmus, an extinct relative of the sea lion (all remains from the Sharktooth Hill Bonebed).  I don't have a skull nor even a replica, hardly any vertebrae, only rib fragments, but many limb elements and teeth.  I understand the challenge of not only finding the missing bones but also ones that are good fits with what you already have and I certainly salute what you have achieved so far.

Excellent progress on this project! I don't post/log in too much, but I've browsed the site for years and remember seeing this in the early stages. Do you plan on constructing a mount for it some day?

I don't have a plan at the moment, nor do I have the space for a mounted woolly rhino. :ighappy:

 

I'll worry about space later I guess :P
