    That's a loaded question that when you get your answer might not even tell you anything. The old adage Cheap, Good, or fast pick two applies. Have you talked to the taxidermist about it?

    I'm currently at 1-2 years, trying to get it down to 1 year but work another job and am a perfectionist, doing stuff competition quality and not making money on it, can't compete with the guys who are cranking out commercial quality stuff. Have a couple I was 2+ years on, trying to get those done and out the door.

    I'm the same as Katie C, plus this year has really sucked 2 surgeries, and a new position at work, quality tech. Company is making aerospace and parts for airlines (ie) wing assembles. I'm the last guy to inspect part before going to the plane. Don't forget the honey do list and taking her on vacation.

    A year is typical for a one man shop that does decent work. Talk to the guy.
