    Finally after six month have arrived today my trophies from South Africa to Buenos Aires Arg.
    The work has been done by the people of Marakalalo Trophies in Bloemfontein City.
    I have not seen yet because I live in Cordoba Province and my Taxidermist is in Buenos Aires.
    He sent some first pictures of the crate and told me that the work is very neatly done and packed in a perfect way with everything in the rigth place......told me so neatly is unusual in this times.

    This is the operation information........

    Crate Size.........and my friend and my Taxidermist in one.....!!!!

    The shipment is Kudu, Orix, Zebra, Red Hartebest, Blue Wildebest, Blesbuck, Impala, Sprimbuck (2), Warthog.....skulls and capes plus Zebra back skin.....ten trophies total and I will do shoulder mont for each one.

    I paid for this size crate and capes and skulls named above US 2300 in South Africa Plus US 600 to my Broker in Argentina wich make a US 2900 Total.

    The shipment was done Airway via.

    At first glance it seems an exellent job but the final word will be said after pickling and tanning the Capes.
    The skulls can go rigth to the plaque if I want, they are perfect clean and white.....will see.

    Saving money again for ten shoulder mounts.......:Rage::Rage::Rage::Rage:

    I hope it is useful for someone.

    See you....!!!!
