    Well all I can say to my peers and fellow artists alike is thank you! I just like you am a taxidermist and a carver (some times) and like our great friend Terry just another fishhead! I wrote and posted so late that I did want to thanks a lot of folks who made this totally possible! “Polymer Guy” AKA my brother and friend Scott McCussey from Innovative Polymers went above and beyond to create a material that I could use for Terry and I make the skin. I planted a seed when I did the shark as I needed to come up with a better skin and leave it to the industries pace setters IP to come up with one! Thank you Scott! Also the beautiful Kings were a combination of Lake Country Replicas handy work (thanks Gang) and none other then Mr. Dave Campbell!! Who can do a King project with out a Campbell replica supplied by my friend Jeff Gould at JG replicas as well! As I mentioned there will be an article done on the entire project so I will go over in some detail who did what and the cool stuff that comes from talented folks (I won’t got there but it is cool to be in good company) getting together to make a plan work out! So much gratitude goes out to the many who did their part for Terry and I to be in a position to make and create a Killer Project come to life!

    I don’t get much in to politics or religion but I have to say that I’m completely humbled by the comments from my peers and I know that I should never speak for any one but I know Terry is too! My creator gave me a gift of business and a gift of passion to follow to where it can take me. I believe that we all have a gift for sure and that if you work hard enough and long enough, believe in a higher power, humble your own ego this will allow you to focus on what matters! Your family importantly must believe in you as you believe in them and your creator! Remember I didn’t start off with any God given Talent I juts took the gift that God gave me and made the most I could from it thus far! If a guy of minimal abilities can learn to do good work you can and will too! Believe in you as I do! I see each and every month how talented you all are and how inspired I am by the work and courage you all put forward! We are still still learning each day I know I ma and Hope you are too! It is such a fun ride to learn and get some thing new out of it each attempt you make!

    Here are few more photos of the project.

    Here are to packed in the truck Orcas!


    If you ever need a boat built or a Orca carrier! LOL!
