New Year, New Stuff

I really do enjoy those 2 weeks that bookend Christmas and New Year's. Most trophy shops that deal with the military take those 2 weeks off, so I get to kick back and relax. Of course, your idea of 'relax' and my idea of 'relax' are two different things. I've gone on a sculpting binge as of late. I will be introducing quite a few new statues over the next 2 months: Ol' Bill by Mench – based on that famous Remington drawing. Great Cavalry piece. Hambone – a real mule used around WW2 by the army Engineers Corps. Fascinating story about him. Check it out here: AF mini Chief – Yeah, you could put it on a Christmas tree... but, why not hang it from the rear view mirror of your car when you drive on base? Show 'em who runs the base! Minute Man – halfsize – For all our National Guard people out there, we're offering a smaller size at a very 'friendly' price point. Now, some of the photos that you see are of the statues that aren't finished. The photo of Hambone was taken when it was still in the wax form; the photo of Ol' Bill by Mench shows a first casting. That pole that is attached to the horse's belly is just a pour spout. Obviously, that is going to be taken off while small holes are patched. Keep checking back for updates on these new designs. The mini Chiefs' bust will be here before the end of the year; the rest should be arriving some time in late February, 2016. Yes, we are taking 'backorders' on these pieces. Just give us a call at 800-987-1126 to place yours. Your card won't be charged until your order ships. Now, I'm going to post this, turn off the computer, and have a well-deserved drink. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all of you. Rod

Happy New Year
