    Started out just wanting to see how detailed I could make a corpsed skeleton, then it evolved into a corpse on a stake, then into a corpse staked on a tree branch with some severed rotting heads alongside. The corpsing was done with latex, shop towel and great stuff. There are a few other odds...

    What would the average size motor be for an Axworthy Ghost? I will be using a lightweight ghoul head with foam arms and cheesecloth so he will be not weigh much at all and my yard is maybe 60 feet across so the cable he will travel on will be about 130ft.

    /scratches head. I know this sounds like a stupid question (and maybe it is) but-I don't have a truck-and I have to believe that I'm not the only one;) I can't find anywhere that will deliver the foam board used to make tombstones etc for a sane price. So that makes things a little difficult...
