Thank you! I made 9 of them of various colors and materials. Haha, I now have an obsession with them. I have plans to make a new version which will be more historically accurate. I posted the tribe below. I hope its ok to do so in this thread.
The Moai on the far left is fresh out of the casting. I need to paint and add remaining texture.

Hey there, after researching past posts here I'm amazed at the decication of the members in discovering and preserving Tiki history. I grew up in family with rich history in Tiki, hot rods and motorcycles. I grew up in Costa Mesa and lived in San Diego during college. Also spent my childhood hanging out in my great grandpa's backyard Tiki bar. I have quite a bit of history from him as he was a professional artist and dedicated much of his life to South Seas/Tiki research and photography. I'll post more as I find time to scan and share. Here's a shot of me doing pretty much the same thing I do now on a regular basis. Glad to be here!

Hi, My name is Phil and for about a year now I have been fascinated by all things Tiki. I think I may have been an islander in a past life. Anyways I have been lurking on this site reading all of the great posts so I thought I would join the conversation.

Hello fellow Tikiphiles! Kahiki Guy here (aka P. Scott). Been checking out TC for years for tips and tricks, so I figured I'd finally go ahead and sign up. So many of you have contributed to my thirst for Tiki knowledge without knowing it, and I'd love to one day be able to return the favor. I have a meager mug collection (approx 40 mugs) that I will continue to add to for the forseeable future, and I built a small (16' L-shaped) Tiki bar, named the Freaky Tiki Hut, in my backyard, which I use quite frequently to entertain. I also have a dry bar inside called the Rock-A-Hula Lounge that I use in the colder months. I love mixing up classic Tiki cocktails, as well as inventing my own, or putting a new twist on some favorites. Whenever I'm interested in trying a new cocktail I try to find the very oldest if not the original recipe to use. I hope to get to know some of you and to learn even more from you, and maybe make some new friends who share a passion for Tiki.
