This is the armature that that was used to create the clay model of the life size wild turkey. The armature is made of 1/2 inch concrete reinforcement bar (re-bar), 3/16 inch welding rod and covered with 1/4 inch hardware cloth. The tail hasn't been covered with the hardware cloth in this photo. The Base is a wonderful piece of junk that I found in the metal scrap yard in Mattoon Illinois. A 5/8 inch "all thread" supports the armature on the base.
