Awesome work on the positions, details, and flocking. They both look great especially the hens.

He is a foam carver, I believe.

Nice work again, Gene.

Derby, they are foam with various sealers and hardeners on them. Then they are flocked and airbrushed.

Here's a thread on another site from a guy who has 6 of those mallards from his first hunt with them. There's pics of them on the water.
