: Hmmmmmmmm...thinking....thiiiiiiiiiiinking.....would it be possible to fabricate the expensive parts from wood? Or paint? It IS just for show, and all? Or would it be too labor intensive to be worth the extra work?
: Obviously, you must finish your orders first and foremost, and I certainly hope you have more waiting upon their completion. But it would be nifty if you could think of a way to salvage the piece when accidents happen. While we all cogitate on a possible solution, hang on to that thar cracked stock. No burning it in Lainey's fire for at least two days an' a bit whilst we ponder!
Wood might be an idea. Possibly. sealed and painted a metallic color. If the entire thing was non-functional and the lock made of wood even, it could be done very cheaply. If that is really something you guys would find acceptable? Keep thinking guys,
and if you come up with something that is mutually agreeable as a "fake" killdeer and it doesnt involve a lotta expense, I can do that and just send it to Marcia to raffle off and proceeds go to the Gathering fund. I dont know WHY anybody would want a life-size fake Killdeer but if you guys think this idea is worth pursuing, well okay.
I am SUCH a NICE Gnome! Why on earth would ANYBODY wanna stuff me or mount me on a stick????????????
