    Well it's nearly ready to mold, just a little clean up left to do. Then I just got to get the funds together for the mold. About $400 or so for the silicone, fiberglass, and casting supplies. Plus I've been busy with work and other projects. But don't worry, I'll get to it as soon as I can. I'd like to get an "interested" list going.
    The neck I was going to do as a one off. Attach the head to the wall mount and build a neck around the armature from the head to the mount. Build it out of foam, and glue fur to it. Still working that out. Thanks all again for following this project. Keep you posted.

    you must be loaded to afford to be able to make a mold for that thing

    That is truly magnificent. Hands down one of the coolest original pieces i've ever seen

    No. not loaded at all. All I can hope for is to sell at least one or two to make up for my costs. It's worked out so far.

    I think I'm motivated enough to get the mold supplies. I'll order them this week and make it my weekend project. Post pics of the mold process when I take them. I have a huge free lance project that could consume my time in March and April, so I'd like to get this one out of the way. Fun fun fun. I'm excited as well about seeing this all furred up. Anyone know where to get some god looking fur for cheap let me know.

    Here are some more pics. I think I'm close now. I changed some things. Added more eye detail, more meat in the back of the head, and over all I changed the skin texture to a more detailed, leathered look. Whatcha think?

    Wow, I just came across this thread. Amazing work there!!!

    I have to add that you must have a very patient wife. If my stuff starts taking up 1/2 of the dining table my wife gets angry, and you don't want to see her angry.

    Actually I have an art room, but she makes me do stuff in the kitchen so I can be around the family and am not holed up back there where noone can see me...

    Beautiful job. So you're going to solid cast them? Wonder what would need to be done to be able to add animatronics to one.
