    Did this one for a customer that wanted something a little different. I took a Coombs New Northern and sawed the right shoulder off, foamed in a new wood block, and built the habitat on back. I also did a lot of altering to the form itself as far as adding the dewlap and some facial wrinkles with apoxie-sculpt prior to mounting. What do you guys think? I had a lot of fun and already am getting more requests for this type of alteration. Video paid for itself the first time! Thanks Micheal!

    Thanks guys, I really appreciate the compliments. It was also my first attempt at using a liner in a ripped up ear. I was happy with how that turned out too. It is really amazing how much great info and helpfull people there is on this site.

    I love that form they put a picture of my deer in his catalog, small like all the others on the second to last page for that form to show what it looked like mounted ; mike Adams interlochen M.I. when that form came out they wanted pictures of it ; but any ways that form ranks right up there for a big deer form . I always recommend it on this site. its ben out four about four years now its made for big northern deer.Dewlap is on the form.Good job,send a picture to Coombs i`am sure they would love to see it. ;D

  20. OK.....I'm a fan

    Interesting to the point I can't quit looking at it. Sumpin' new the longer I gaze at it.


    I have only used one Coombs form, but I must say I really enjoyed using it! Just fell together.

    I too have used MP's system with great results.

    Big Fan of MP and now You!!
