    Maybe consider getting these out to some of the outdoor shows.... I think they'd do pretty well...

    I just received a Sable decal from Scott and all I can say is WOW! Great quality and detailing and very easy to apply. An awesome way to showcase my passion for hunting in Africa. Thanks Scott for creating an awesome product! I will be ordering a Buff decal soon...

    Eric they look great on the safe. I have a local guy who is going to offer the decals as a special option and I am doing some custom work of Elk, Mule Deer, and Whitetail (the hunters personal animals) to be placed on the safes.

    For all of you following the thread, Eric had an issue with the paper seperating with the decal. I had just changed blades on the cutter, and it had in fact cut into the paper backing slightly. I encourage anyone who has ordered decals, if there is an issue please let me know. The problem was resolved by simply backing the blade up a little.

    Thanks Eric for posting the pictures.

    No problem Scott, I hope your business really thrives! I probably need one more to even my safe out picture wise a little bit, I wasn't sure how they would fit on the safe but it was no problem. You did have that blue wildebeest done at the time, but he would be a fine addition.

    Added a few this weekend, 2 Euro mounts, a Lechwe and a Tsessbe.

    Then the two 2 skin on animals. Been wanting to do the Gemsbok for some time now and finally got a picture that I liked the animals position. The Lioness roaring is for bluey and BnC 04. The Euro mounts were sent to me and requested by a Mr. Tom Murphy . The reflection is inside the carwash, it was so bright today none of the pictures at the house were turning out, so I found some shade.:D

    You're right, now that I think about it, they look at you kinda like a Cape Buff,,,,, they are pissed at you, for whatever reason. Maybe they know why you are there.:shooting: Whatever the reason, I am realy happy with the way the Oryx turned out. Spike, the 3 Euro decals were on request, and I am not too familiar with the animals themselves, but after looking at other pics after I did the decal, I am quite happy with them as well.

    I hope bluey like the Lioness.... Like it or not ones on the way to him....:p

    Thanks to you and Eric and all that have looked me up. I think Jerome and I have almost come to an arrangement.

    I think the lechwe and tsessebe look fine, I can picture them in the bush with skin on them. I agree with Spike t that oryx has a gleam in the eye...don't thread on me!

    Sitatunga, the right way.... Learned my lesson. I will check photos sent to me from now on. Thanks Sest.

    I appreciate all of the feedback, good and bad. The neat thing about doing this decal thing is the opportunity to learn about the critters I am decaling. (think I'll have a drink to Africas snorkeler)

    Thanks again to those of you who told me the last Sitatunga was not right.

    I agree, you have it there now. Even got the face right. Sitatunga have a different shaped face than most other lopes. Looks great!
