    Thanks guys, very kind words.

    Michael P. is correct. It is the original Mears head, though I have been known to change em' out. This particular form had a nice set of dew laps already sculpted in as do the biggest Mears ssnk forms. The extra skin on the cape made up my mind to add a roll of clay to the center dew lap. A small roll was used to create the Roman nose. No clay was used for the chin or the nose pad. If I can get away with it, I like a hard surface to glue to so I usually rasp down the nose with a file to get the shape.
    No Mark, I'm not bringing it to the Indiana show. It's a commercial mount. There are certain anomalies with it that when added up on a score sheet would make me fall short of my goal. But I will be there and I look forward to seeing you.

    ive never used a mears form. I live in Canada. Im taking nothing away from Steve's mount here .....i find mears forms to have such a heavy chin....its almost as big as the nose....or at least apears to be. The other thing ive noticed with most mears is the eyes...how forward they are. I do know this can be altered. These are the only things that stand out to me on mears that i would change before using a mears. I love the way mears narrows the form just at the base of the neck to make the appearance of the neck seem even more swelled. I guess because this is a semi sneak, its different in that area. The shoulder on mears forms also apear to be narrow on the width....the way most deer should are. Am i correct in all these assumptions people? The reason i ask is i am shoping for a form on a remount and need to make up my mind soon. Maybe i should repost..im sorry if i should have but thougt people could refer to Steve's mount
