Part of the calf started to check with abandon, so here I am trying to glue it and pull it back together.
To stop the glue from leaking out the bottom of the check, I filled it with stray wood chips. They dried in the crack, and then I shaved them off. This makes for a much stronger, and better looking fill.

The bit of material on the inner thigh is part of his race-id number (keep in mind however, that eventually, part of the hamstring will be cut off (see the overall plan).
