I got this because at £55 it was the cheapest detailed skeleton model available, and I thought half-height would be most convenient for study. At the time of this review it's priced at just under £70, which I think is still good value.
The finish isn't perfect, as you'd expect from a budget model, but it does have most of the lumps and bumps described in my textbook. Alignment of the pelvis and probably spine seems a bit off, but that hasn't bothered me so far. The skull won't sit properly on the atlas because there's a blob of plastic that you use to screw the skull on and the hole for the screw is in the wrong place (moulded, so yours will be the same), which is rather a shame.
The knee joint is a bit unusual, with a protrusion from the superior surface of the tibia that fits between the condyles of the femur so they can be joined with one screw. This means you miss a bit of what the articular surface actually looks like.
Vertebrae are all separate but hands and feet are one piece so you'll need separate models if you want to study them properly.
The radio-ulnar joints work! I didn't understand them until I got this model, so they make me particularly happy.
The limbs have an unusual bungee and toggle arrangement for attaching, which makes them very easy to detach and you can pull them away while still attached to have a look in the joint.
The size is great for studying and drawing larger bones while at a desk, and I've also found him very portable. If I remove any limbs I don't need he fits in a standard canvas shopping bag, and is none the worse for regularly going out with me in my bike panniers.
I've found having a real model in front of me invaluable for studying musculoskeletal anatomy, and this one is quite affordable. If you're considering getting one and are ok with some compromises for a significant saving, this is a great buy.
This skeleton is exactly what I needed in my clinic to demonstrate my clients joint movements, muscles attachments, etc. It has a slight lordosis but you wouldn't know unless you would look very closely and measure all the angles. Other than that I'm happy with it.
