    Here's my current project that I'm now finishing up. It's a 7 1/2" x 18" in an upright. I've already finished the model in a semi-sneak.

    I had originally sculpted the head over a skull, then made a mold off that, then some castings in turn. I sent one of the castings to Dan Jennings and he test fitted the head to capes at different stages of green to tanned. He then gave it a thumbs up. Don't change a thing he says.

    I then sculpted a working prototype in a straight and sent it up to Mr. T for mounting and his critique. He didn't like the fullness of the muzzle, so I've been re-sculpting the heads as I go.

    I've sent 19 sculptures off to the mold maker. Still waiting on molds. Once we get some in hand, we can start running scholarship auctions again.

    You were one of the lucky ones ; I was with out till 9:30 in the morning 5 days total , the roads were plowed when you came up ; still thousands with out power , but you can get a burger at Wendys . the snow was so heavy and wet trees and limbs came raining down , only took till sunday and every thing was plowed ,but the lines were down all over, they have line crews from down state and 27 crews from Indiana working around the clock and don`t expect to have every body up till monday ;. Rick your on a paved main road and they got power to you guys fast as well as Interlochen corners . its taking time to get all the roads ware people live ni the woods, i`am a mile in. don`t think you need to look for broken pipes it got in the high 50 s yesterday and we lost a lot of snow , but 4 inches to night but the week end will be in the 40 s
