Reproduction Blank Construction: My blanks are made of gel coat resins. Mouth pieces are made of latex rubber. Fins are semi-transparent with a hint of flex to them. Unfinished, open gill fish will require an artificial gill. Wood block will be placed in the center of the back side, unless a different positioning is requested. Blanks noted with a CG or OG are molded closed gill, but have the gill flaps spread a little. They can be altered to open gill with a Dremel cut off tool and heat.  I do sell a 5.25″ gill set that will work with larger bass ($12). They do NOT come with a pair of eyes, nor do I sell eyes.

Legend:      LT or RT or STR:  (Left Turn or Right Turn or Straight)
OM or CM:  (Open Mouth or Closed Mouth)
OG or CG:  (Open Gill or Closed Gill)
S or C: (S-curved shaped or C-Curved shape)

Competition Disclaimer: If you elect to enter one of my blanks into competition, YOU assume all responsibility for your score and ribbon. These blanks are molded and cast to the best of my ability, and they are NO guarantee of your success competing. I will refuse to sell a ready-to-paint or completed blank for the purpose of competition. Raw blanks are available for competitions, but it will be your responsibility to complete all finish work.  Upon entering, you must claim the blank as commercially purchased and NOT original.

R2P Blanks:  There may be certain times of the year, when ready-to-paint blanks will not be offered. R2P blanks have all the finish work completed.  Eyes will come with a latex rubber mask that can easily be removed after painting.  

Raw / Unfinished Blanks:  Raw / unfinished blanks are exactly that. These blanks are removed from the mold. Seams will trimmed to about an 1/4″. I scrub them with soap and water, then rinsed with acetone. They will require a relative amount of finishing experience. They are NOT “snap-together” blanks. Task will include midline seam finishing, mouth insertion, artificial gill creation, paired fin installation, and eye setting. Instruction sheets are included with every order. I am available for help by email, messages, text, or phone. Simple instruction sheets are included.  If you experiment with methods, beyond the suggestions given in the instruction sheet, I cannot be responsible.

GEN2 Blanks:  These blanks are my version of “snap together” blanks.  They should have around 30 minutes prep time for most experienced taxidermists. Blanks come with a completed head, that will need attachment.  Midline fins are in place and there is a small midline seam that will need finishing.  Both are ground down and ready for finishing.  Paired fins are separate and fit into a formed pocket on the body.  A pair of red gills come shaped to the body and attach easily with super glue.  Simple instructions are included.  If you experiment with methods, beyond the suggestions given in the instruction sheet, I cannot be responsible.

A full line of commercial reproduction work is also available. Please contact me, to see if I can locate a specific species and size for your trophy. All commercial reproduction work is $24 per inch and normally has a 6 month turn around.
