Definately not for Artists
By Kat the Artist

Comments about Mr. Thrifty Skeleton:
I received this model as a gift for Christmas to use as artistic reference. It was purchased for it's "poseability", which turned out to be extreamly limited. This model is only good if you don't need to pose it in any natural position other than standing straight or sitting on a towel or other fabric surface to support it. The box shows the model with head turned and arm up as if waving. The model is not capible of doing either. The flimsy plasic parts are held together with tiny metal screws. When recieved one of these metal screws was found in the box with the model's hand hanging half way off. Super glue was used to fix the issue to keep the screw in. Next the rib cage began to come apart where the clear frontal area attaches to the solid white ribs. Super glue again. I will keep this model seeing as it was a gift but only to stand straight up. It is also quite large which turns out to me more of a pain for my particular use. I would only recommend this product to someone looking to teach the names of the bones. However, it does have good detail as you will see in the photos. Each bone seems pretty well defined. Also, the description clearly states that the model is "not cast to scale" so I'm not very sure just how good a reference this model truly is for anatomy purposes - artistically speaking. I will be looking for a smaller model to serve my purposes in the future.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
