Around the 3 inch mark I believe. I'll have to give it a measure tomorrow. Not my biggest by any means, but as far as preservation and mouth border I can't really ask for anything more. Should hopefully get it finished tomorrow :dinothumb:

The ‘almost’ finished article. Just a little abraiding left to do to tidy up some parts where I just can’t touch with the pen.

Any pictures pal? Be interested to see if the mouth borders are similar. A lot of mine tend to have pieces of the mouth missing from where it's though that Lobsters  would cut in to pull out that delicious ammonite :hearty-laugh:

Get ready to become an addict then haha. Personally I use paraloid, but there’s many other consolidates you can use. There’s probably a thread on here somewhere.

It’s looking great. Did you have to add a gloss to it or does it naturally shine up like that?

Just a very light coat of beeswax buffed in. Some suit the shine, and some don’t. I think this one suits it.
