I did all the sewing but my wife helped me taxi the dermy. It was wide gap that I had to stretch together.

So... do all the various form pieces you stretch the skin over... for the major body parts.... do they all inter-connect together? (at what would be the joints) And can they then be locked-down with screws at all the joints in order to hold the desired pose?

I'm assuming you have to order each body part piece measured to within measurable circumference and length of that area of the hide, right?

Let's see... I'd assume you can order forearm, arm, torso, foreleg, leg, and moveable/poseable articulated neck piece, right?
How does the neck-piece attach to the skull exactly?

Are the body-part pieces like shave-able non-collapse-able foam so that you can trim them down and custom shape them to achieve best fitment?

How does one go about curing the paws? How do you get the flesh out of them but leave behind the hide and bone? Beetles? Or do they just somehow cure it with the palms containing the bone and flesh that remains within them?

How do you mold/shape/form the artificial "tongue"? Does it come pliable/maleable and then you "Set it" with a hardening type solution?

Curious minds.
