I had no idea there were two similar fetal skeleton models on the market that, although very similar in appearance and price, are not the same. Figured if I was confused, others might be as well.

First, I bought this version (identified by the mounting hardware including springs on mandible) for $57 shipped:

Then I purchased this one with glued joints for $67 including a "bonus" skull. It is slightly larger (I'm guessing a week different in age) and definitely made from a different original::

I had a devil of a time getting the hardware screwed in place on the first model, and the paint color for the cartilage is very bright and peachy. Paint color I can change, but I'm disappointed in the overall appearance caused by mounting issues. The right hip just won't seat right and looks like the hole for the screw needs to be re-drilled at a different angle. I'm also struggling to get it to pose nicely upright like the version without hardware. OTOH, I barely touched the arm of the glued version and the brittle glue just popped off. Again, an easy fix but worth noting.

Of course, for those with very deep pockets, there's always this high end skeleton :D

... and this high-end skull:

Anyone else care to share their experiences and suppliers?

So not only am I less than impressed with the hardware version, I paid more than I had to? Grargh! I know what's going to get used in my conjoined twins build!
