The depiction of the 40th president is now in the waxing process, the Daily Pilot reported.

After the wax mold is made, it will be cast in bronze. It is to be dedicated at Bonita Canyon Sports Park by the end of the year, the centennial year of Reagan's birth. Reagan died in 2004 at 93.

The statue was created by Newport Beach artist Miriam Baker.
