Thanks Ollie !  ;)
Here are two 16 1/4" European perch molds, one closed mouth, the other open. I try and get two molds from the one fish before the cooking process renders it useless ! This is my own personal fish so hopefully it will come out nice ! the molds look OK so far, just need a bit of a clean up .

Some nice work in progress so far.....this is a great thread to show the labor pains before seeing the baby...lol
Here's my second pike AND the biggest one in my short tenure: 43 inch PIG....man, there's a lot of work in one of these gators.
     I DID buy a repro head but it just didnt look or fit right so I re-built the original head inside and out. Pretty happy with the way it's coming out and like I told Doug, I'm glad to even be at his point. Skinning that gator took me waaaaaay too long and hell, that was just the starting point....lol. Got a lot more work till its done and have already logged a few hours to get to this point (the form alterations is another story.... ;D).....

Really nice looking Pike so far Brian. Now that all the nasty work is done the fun painting begins and that fish looks fun to paint  with great detail showing. Pike are a hard fish to skin mount but the more you do the faster you get, but they still take time. It takes me a better part of a day to skin a big Musky and it kicks my butt. TOday is a fun day because I got to start painting again. Here are 3 bass I started on this morning and almost have them done. I also washed 62 sets of paired fins and 22 replicas I cast over the last week.

Randy, you must be able to paint fish with your eyes closed you do so many !
I could not even imagine doing that many fish, hats off to you for keeping the standards so high.
