Good pickings this time around, Sebastian! That fishy looks like it could be interesting, but a bit of a challenge to prep.

I'll be interested to see how that fish comes out. :)

Nice haul, Sebastian.

Well done.  I love that place.  Is the old man still running it?

I just prepped the bone plate from which I showed the unprepped picture above. Its a bit easier to prep than the plate with the vertebrae but its still challenging. I think I worked about 2 hours on it now and the stone is partly kinda hard and the surface structure is a bit fragile ... I dont think that it will turn out as good as the plate with the vertebrae but still not too bad.

Sebastian, you  should use air abrasive methods, instead of picking tools. Otherwise it will be hard to prep the fish.

If you are not familiar with prepping the fish ask one who is.

Thanks Kevin :) It costs 3 euro for an adult and 2 euro for a child.

I actually use air abrasive methods and I also asked an expert about his thoughts on the fish prep. He gave me some useful tips and I think if I would be satisfied with my prep tools I would try it but at the moment I have some problems with them ...

 

Here is another update on my bone prep:

Prepped about 4 or 5 hours until now and I some progress is visible. Still have to do much fine prep work ...

Nice teeth.

Looks like the bone plate is going to be a good one.

Thanks Tony :) I am really happy that I found this plate and the other one. Such finds are not common there so the year is starting good for me!

I forgot to say that I have two associated pieces for the piece with the ribs and I managed to prep them a bit recently. I ran into some surprises :ighappy:

Firstly I found an Ichthyosaur paddle bone:

Not completely finished until now but I already did some work...

The other surprise are two Steneosaurus (crocodile). One of them is pretty small but the other one could be the largest one I ever found...

Here are some pictures:

I didn't finish this one because I need to do some hard work on the plate to prep the ribs and I don't want to damage it. It's about 2.5 cm long and I think my biggest one is about 2.6 cm! Normally that are about 1 or 2 cm long but bigger ones are very rare!

 

And some more progress in the ribs:
