Roby Canyon Hackamore: Progress
Over the weekend I managed to finish Bosal 2 for this set (below right). Somehow, it, as well as the mecate, came out a scoosh too big. I tell you what, folks (voice of Bartok the Bat here), proportion is the greatest challenge in model tackmaking.
Meanwhile back to the vision I saw in that canyon in June! Finally putting the pieces together and finally getting a morning without rain, I had a little photo shoot... and the trees promptly dripped water on him.
To suggest what the entire rig might look like, I added the closest thing I had to a plain TSII saddle. This is TSII #117, from 1985, my first good basketweave. It's 33 years old... still looks good to me...
The jaw strap is actually needed on such a large head.
