Small red fox

Submitted by Sal on 3/12/02. ( )

I am trying to do a pedistal mount of a red fox but the fox measurments don't match any of the mannikins I can find. The fox measures 2 3/4 eye to nose and 7 1/4 around the neck. the closest mnnnikin was 2 1/2 x 7 3/4. Please help this is only my second mount.

Go for it. That form should fit perfect. The eye/ nose measurement is more important than the neck circumference. If needed you can always shave down the neck with a rasp. That's quick and easy. The eye/nose measurement can be a little bit shorter than the actual hide, this way you can fit the hide loosely on the face rather than stretching it out to much which would give the mount a tight look. You want a soft look in the face. This form will do it for you.
