Couple of gadwalls

The bluish tint is from the lighting. Gimme some opinions. Ya'll think the "frankenstein" ring around the neck is too noticible? They haven't been clear coated yet.

I admire your willingness to attack those decoys and modify them to the extent you have. ( I do the same thing with mine)

Hard to really duplicate a gadwall paint scheme with only solid brown/dark gray.

EDIT: I think you have that picture upsidedown.

yeah, I looked at some photos online, and there's no way way to make them look like a real one. Just settled on a paint scheme and went with it.

The heads could be a little bit lighter but other than that they look great to me. Great job
