Oh wow! Beautiful job on this guy, the little switches in metalics really do a good job highlighting all that careful sculpt work you did.

That's really awesome. I'm terrible at looking at fossils and trying to figure out what they'd look like in life, so thanks for the 360 view!

That one deserves a full wow. =)
And yes it was a really creepy little organism back from the days when live experimented wildly with just about any solution to find a way that were possible and successful.
And I think Opabilia were that, and a forebear to the arthropods we got today perhaps even the amphipoda. (Others were weeded out, like the really weird Hallucigenia.) =)

Opabinia! :D Wish I had $70 to spend on this. It's so beautiful and accurate! If you ever do a mini version, I'll have to get it. :)

Possible. At what maximum value you expect?

Oh wow, wasn't expecting a reply. :) I could probably do the $40-45 range. Any higher than that is just harder for me to justify right now. But it's absolutely beautiful and certainly worth the $70, so if a mini version isn't doable, maybe I can just save up for it for someday in the future. :)

Hello! You have not yet figured out the problem Paypal? Maybe you will be more convenient to pay Western Union? When paying by Western Union will be a discount of 15% (given that most Western Union Commission).

Hello, Hontor! Yes, I ran into some issues with Paypal that I have to call them to resolve (something to do with the fact that I've moved and so cannot meet all the proof that they need that I am the person who set up the account). Western Union may work better, yes. Does it work well internationally? (I'm in the US.)
