    Could you agree with the customer on a pose that would hide that whole leg.Maybe some good habitat.Just a thought.

    I doesn't look like much is missing, just separated. If you get it a little thinner with a skiving knife and work out the puzzle it should be fixable. I think it will work out OK. Better cut down on the circumference of the foot on that mannikin. Or just cut it off and shape it with Apoxy sculpt.

    Hi Rick, lot of it missing.
    Look at pic 2 it shows stitchng as far as I can go on back of leg. front of leg at ankle is mostly there but below the ankle to the toes is GONE
    what you see is about the closest that it comes together below the ankle.
    It's togehter now drying more pics tonight.
    It's in a jumping custom made pose both front legs are two feet offf the ground no to shave it down, if your talking about shaving the form and still make legs lok same size.
    I've dealt with worse, this will make it OKAY
  13. hahahaaa god .. all i can say is just do the best you can repairing it and hide the rest with habitat

    brushwolf, no habitat will used to hide it, the type of pose and base will not work for that.
    Pics of completed mount will be posted
    Tonight repaired leg and clay work
    It will not be finished but you will see where i'm at with it.

    I look forward to seeing the finished pictures. It would be cool to hear how you go about fixing that mess up. It is amazing to see the kind of damage that can be repaired in the right hands.
