This is the current Status of my Warthog Skeleton.

I have shot the sow in November and received the dip&pack Skeleton in March.

Since the bones were still greasy, but not overboiled, I did some more degreasing and whitening on the bones and the skull.
The bones were requested like this by me.
It’s easier to degrease the bones for me, than working on overboiled and brittle bones

This week i started with the articulation of the spine and the Thorax :)

If there i some interest in this project ill Update this thread when i have build more of the Skeleton / finished it

Liking it thus far- keep it coming. I've always wanted a rattlesnake done like that.

Agreed … 1st project of this type I’ve came across & what a cool idea/project!! You may have started a NEW trend …

Would you be willing to share your secret sauce for the degreasing & whitening? The whitening & texture is very nice …

Cool stuff!

Hey everyone..rookie mistake here. Packing to leave tomorrow and I have no idea JNB policy for bringing I cigarettes. Yes I know a smoker, plan on taking 4 cartons if able. Any advice please. Will be greeted by Mr X to ease custom’s hassle. Thanks in advance !
Hi,

Glade to hear from you and that you have kept me in mind.

I hope all is well and the hunting has been good.

Everything is fairly good.

The 2 fellows that I had lined up for this great hunt opportunity have backed out.

I'm in the process of purchasing a new house and having knee surgery, or surgeries depending on the left knee MRI, hopefully I can get back to Africa as early as 2024.
I'm concerned about Australia's indigenous species that are being killed by feral cats. Is anyone aware of any hunts I can joining to go to Australia to take a few shots at feral cats.
