Is my Rose-Hair T an adult?

I got this girl from somebody in a trade a few weeks ago and he said she was an adult. It's my first Tarantula so I can't tell by her size if she's an adult or not. Could someone with more experience tell me if it looks like she's an adult? Thank you!

So she'll molt again even if she's already an adult?

Seems a little small to be an adult. Perhaps one or two molts away. I'm leaning female, but like rockpython, I used to have one I swore was a female until it molted into a mature male. If it ends up being female, it will molt until it dies. If it's a male, it will stop molting after maturing (or should at least, though some T keepers have had mature males molt again, often with very little success though).

On an unrelated note, I like the pics you have of your pinned insects :) You're a collector then?

Thanks for the info!

Oh, I just noticed you can scroll and see the other pictures! Yup, I'm an avid insect collector and breeder, a fledgling entomologist and wannabe tropical cockroach taxonomist. :)
