Nice work again from everyone! Really cool fishes!
Yeah, those dogfish and bowfin make3 neat mounts. Ever see any with lime green fins? I did a few times and found it was al in the mucous coat. Here is a guy that made me happy by placing his walleye above all his precious memorabilia. Giant 36 inch replica from Research. Another walleye and a redfish recently.
missed that walleye
Nice fish everyone, Doug love that walleye!
Beautiful walleye Dennis!
I posted this picture elsewhere on this site but I wanted to contribute (TMIFP) first lakers, 38" each, skin mount carved body cast head, I asked a couple guys on here for advise on the fish in front which dried very blotchy, their input helped a lot.
Beautiful fish everyone!!
Nice trout hambone. Did that paint schedule hellp at all?
Nice Jackalope also Denny.......... ;D
Good job on those Lakers Hambone
Fin positioning looks real nice!
Jim F. I like those Kings...nice and shiny looking ;D
Dennis, is it just my eyes... or is the eyeball on that top Walleye actually hanging out of the socket?
Can't take credit for the trophy jackalope....although I do create wooly walleye and rhino bass. Richard, I think it is an illusion about the eye socket. The fish came "ready to paint" from LCR and they do some nice eye socket work IMHO. Maybe it developed a dark ring around it when I Q-tipped all the overspray from the eye????
Den, I just thought that it might have been an injury or something that the customer wanted put into the replica. It looks to me like the eyeball is hanging by a white membrane as if it "popped out" of the head entirely and looks to be hanging down by the maxillary bone.
Just finished up:
Chrome Chinook Skinmount(repro head/real fins) and Golden Trout (made from Rainbow Skinmount(repro head/fins)
Wow beautiful golden trout!
I'm not a taxidermist, don't plan on being one, but I absolutely love this thread every month!!!
I love looking at what you all can do and its truly incredible. Angling Artisan, that is one beautiful Golden Trout! Absolutely a beautiful fish.
Everyone else, you all amaze me with your talents.
Rich...outstanding king and golden! Magnificent!!
good job hambone, they look great....hope i helped
Here's a custom mold/cast 23" rainbow
Richard Benedict....Where did you get that picture you posted on your second comment? My fish all have accurate and "outstanding" eyes and eye placement. (Get it....outstanding?).
By God I know fish eyes, and here is a prime example. Taken from reference of every fish I have seen in the Bass Pro HOg Tanks.
I think you need to see an optometrist!
