Thats top shelf...looks like you really took a lot of time on this. Did you use the skin just for the gills or along the entire side.

Superb!

JK, I did use the skin first and then coated it with epoxy. I did 2 bandsaw cuts after it dried to scoop out the face area and then I added the cheek and gill plates and then 4 more coats of epoxy to get back to smooth. Did some highlite face details and then 2 more coats. What was I thinking! LOL
