    That wrapping method for small mammals really appeals to me. They just look so soft and real.
    I wish I weren't so allergic to the darned things ...

    yes, that wrapped mammal body is fascinating - beautifully done -

    HFP - yes, I would love to see your marabou's - they are one of my favorite birds.

  5. Nice roosters Wingman. Do you remove the tails on those and bondo them, or do you just use the blue tape to hold the feathers in place? Just curious because your pheasants are top notch.

    Dt, Thanks, I remove them and hot glue them. I often leave them removable on birds to be shipped Theres a Wingtip on the method under "tutorials by subject" the first thread under tutorials

    I like that idea. Seams a little easier and more controlled than bondo. I'm going to try that one out.

    Wingman I hope you share your process when you get around to doing your toucan, I have a couple crows in the freezer that I have been saving for toucans but I'm unsure about what process to use for coloring the feathers. Thats one good looking grouse you got there.
