    I have a customer inquiring about a head mount for a 300lb Mako shark. Does anyone make a fiberglass repro head for one about that size? Also, is a skin mount feesible? My customer cut the head off at the gills. I have not seen it. It is in a cooler on ice. Thank you.

    Your best bet would be to get one totally finished from Mike Kirkhart/New Wave taxidermy and mark it up so it's worth your time...

    Marty is right, and you'll still make a buck...it would be nice to do one, but if its not something that will be in you everyday process then its not worth it from a money stand point..and had Mkingsley been real I was going to order a new wave sailfish finished and ready to go, marked it up a little for my time; probably 15%-20%, and been happy.
