  1. So you know how they've got those nigh-pornographic art models with the poseable skeletons and all that jazz? Do they make them in non-human? Looking for a mouse or a rat... uh, also non-lewd. I don't need a sexy mouse. Not yet....

    1. @scribus This guy carved a jointed skeleton out of wood. I encourage you to look elsewhere in his gallery for more pictures http://rainbowdash.net/url/875862

      1. @thelastgherkin Dude I've seen that before! And it is a good idea... um, in the context of trying to make an anatomical/biomechanical model. heh

    2. @scribus What are your specifications? Do you need any mouse skeleton? Do you need to hold only one pose? Do you only need an approximation of the skeleton with a fur (artificial) over it? Has it to be life size or can it be bigger?
      If it can be (much) bigger and the look isn't that important you can 3d print a skeleton, drill through the bones and use armature wire to hold it together and for some posability. It is just tedious to make.

      1. @adiwan I dunno, lol. This is really probably just Perfectionism stepping on Productivity's toes. Mostly I just was looking for a reliable way to check if something I would write would be physically plausible. But I've already taken pages of notes on "The Secret of NIMH" and other cartoons and actual live animal footage, so I probably don't *need* anything at all.

        1. @scribus I think it's cheaper to buy a real mouse and not bother trying to replicate the skeleton in order to see if a pose is even possible. Yeah... It'd bite back but still cheaper time-wise and financially. I don't think pet shops allow anybody willy-nilly to grab a mouse and contort it.
