Strengths: 

This model provides a very detailed description of the skin.  The size of the model (enlarged 105 times) is incredibly important in providing appropriate tactile information.  With guidance, students are able to clearly feel the hair follicles, hair, sweat glands, oil glands, etc.

As the model is so large, I will sometimes even have two students studying it at the same time. 

Limitations: 

I have not found any problems with this model.

Ordering Info: 

This oversized model of the skin can be ordered from mannequinmart.com.

The current cost of this model is $64.99 but the site indicates that the cost had been $84.48.  It is unclear what the regular price is.
