great thread, very neat seeing the way that you do things, amazing how people can operate differently and still get great results. Some of those pics scare me! Like the one of the pulled under skull and you are in the shop barefoot. I used to do that, but ya kick a plaster mold edge with your pinky toe just once and I was cured of that bad habbit.
Once again, great (and prolific) work. are you on theeffectslab.com ? Its a great site and their animatronics forum could use your frequency of posts.
