Ya its not to hard I have a kit but have not got the right squirrel yet, the only thing bad is the instructions don't give a lot of detail on like the toes to have to make, and the tail is kind of weird. But overall they are good kits if my uncle did it i would just ask him if you have any other questions.

Okay they Tail is pretty easy just wrap thread around the foam rubber in the kit till it will fit all the way in the tail, the nose and lips you will just have to pin in place till they dry.
