Goose Gut Molding Tutorial - Finally!
« on: March 04, 2013, 04:42:39 PM »
Well, after many moons I finally got a chance to get a tutorial together on molding up goose guts. I took lots of pictures, and was helped out by a couple of great fellas down at Coos Custom Calls in Coos Bay, OR. I put the tutorial in a PDF document so everyone could download it if needed. I hope to have section 2 done in another week.

 Any comments and or questions should go here or in another new post. Hope you guys like it!

 Bob

P.S. - an awesome double  :bigup:  :bigup: to Fred Wills and Jack Cheney for helping out with this!


Here it is

Very cool Bob!  Looking forward to seeing more on this!

This material you use looks like it may be some of the stuff that hobby stores sell.  If so, folks can get a heck of a discount by having their local hobby store's iPhone app with them when the go into shop!  http://thogamecallsforums.com/index.php/topic,15755.msg119182.html#msg119182

There is often a discount coupon off one item of 40-50 percent off.

The first time I bought the High Strength 2 was in a hobby store. There's TONS of different ways to do this with different types of products, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to show everyone the one that I use.

 I know I left a ton of stuff out, but if there's anything you cant figure out, just holler at me and I'll do the best I can to get it covered for ya.
