Brilliant, you got my vote!  :thumbup:

It's especially funny as crabs don't have bone skeletons at all.  :grin:

Great! It's very nice of you to share the build of your skeleton crab. With or without you sharing this, you really had my vote from the beginning. I hope you win! :wink:

Thankyou Skalldyr for generously giving us building instructions for your Skeleton Crab!  :thumbup:
I may have to build one of these myself. It is inventive how you attached the scissors and legs.
Well done.  :classic:

This is really fun.  The use of a few number of pieces to really display something well is really impressive.
