    Hello all. Just wanted to show some pics of a tauntaun bust I have made. It is not 1:1 scale but it is very close. Enjoy the pics and thanks for looking.

    That is both sweet and scary at the same time. I wish Tauntauns were real......

    AWESOME looking replica, as always.

    Thanks guys for the kind words. I used a fake snow that I bought from a taxidermy shop. It is used for dusting over displays as well as the animal mounts. I think it looks very convincing. :)

    Man - let me tell you ... I work for an accounting firm and have been working 7 days a week, 16 hour days ... this just made my day Richard. That is awesome looking. Perfect in every detail. You and Tom are dangerously close to bringing every Star Wars creature to life.

    Great stuff.
