Rattlesnake Taxidermy

Have Any Home Taxidermy Advice?

I have had a Rattlesnake (dead/frozen) come into my possession. I would like to dissect it and then afterwards I would like to assemble the bones into an anatomically correct assemblage. I want the bones to be pure white (like in the museums). Any Advice on how to go about doing this without using a professional?

Should I boil the bones?
What about carion beetles?
Any advice on connecing bone to bone - particularly the ribs (many ribs in snakes)?
Yeah, I'm planning on assembling the bones in the order in which I take them out of the snake's corpse. So, I'll have fresh firsthand experience knowing how and where the bones connect to each other. However, I have no idea what kind of hardware to use to fasten the bones together.........screws seem to big. I'm not looking for the skeleton to be movable like in some fake human models, so it will probably be striking a pose.............any resins/glues that are commongood to use?

well i would put them in a carion beetle pit to get rid of the flesh and then sit the bones in bleach for a few days, that should be all i think.
