recently on another birding list, the following site was mentioned

it contains "3D" movable, rotatable photos in quick-time
format of all the ornithological type material in the
Zoological Museum Amsterdam.

If you can be bothered downloading the large versions,
the resulting image is quite impressive.

Not many Australasian species that I could see on a quick
browse - but for example the holotype of the Sumba
Eclectus Parrot  subspecies is viewable in all its
mid-19th century glory.
