    I have a mannikin that I've ordered from OTS. In my mind I was thinking of it being in 1 piece. It's actually 2. I am guessing so that the taxi can adjust the pose. It just totally blew my mind. How do you guys secure this thing, let alone make it look natural with it being 2 pieces?

    Was it cut for shipping purposes? I use hot glue for reattaching the small stuff.

    Why a coyote ped form was cut at all, where was the cut or what two pieces. Secures very easy with threaded rod or square stock, you supply. Most come with rods attached, post a picture.

    Do you mean the base and form are separated? Yes post pictures.

    It's likely an Ozark Woods, and that is how they are made. Rough up both sides, attach together w/ some bondo, and run a long drywall screw in there to hold it while the bondo sets. It'll be ready to mount the next day. It literally takes about 5 minutes to do this.

    Aside from the assembly required, it is one of the best coyote pedestals on the market. The extra time assembling it is made up for not having to do as much facial re sculpting.
