    i have a 21" blesbok cape and i have searched through every catalog and every website i know about for a form for it and the largest i have found is 19" my question is : does anybody know of a company that makes one this big or would it be ok to use a hartebeste manikin.
     
  2. Just alter the form to fit, enlarge the neck some. A Hartebeest will look like a Hartebeest.

    Most African form manufacturers give one neck measurement usually at the atlas or tight around ears. That 19 inch may be 21 or bigger a few inches down the form making it a lot bigger then you thought.
