agreed - our carving of the body is the same style

the pattern I used was from an old boxed set of full sized plans for working decoys I found in an antique shop by a Charles Murphy - big pattern sheets I think will eventually look great framed in the shop. there are 6 different birds in the set - i have a set of heads cut out for woodies - they are next

I've shown them before, but my birds now have one season under their belt, and will get wet next week

Looking at the draketail curls, I saw a neat trick by using black fiberglass strapping tape which is used to strap stuff onto pallets. It's about the right width, and if you heat it, and bend it to shape, it looks great. Not sure of it's durabilty, however
