Gizzard shad

This has to be one of my favorite builds so far. She's made of PVC and is 6 3/4" long and has a nice slow sink. The "S" movement is tight and swims well. I don't have an airbrush yet, so I sprayed her with a rattle can, the third section kinda got messed up due to me being impatient. Clear coated with Etex. Let me know what you think.

Mel , that looks as good as any I have seen. Sounds like you have the swimming action in good shape also. Congratulations.

Thanks John. I can't wait for the weather to warm up a little so I can catch a pig with it. They will only get better once I get my airbrush. It's hard to get the detail out of a spray can.

Thanks for all the compliments. I learned everything off of TU so I have to give all the credit to everyone who posted the how to threads and tutorials. I've only been doing this for about a year and this is my 8th swimbait. I'm a quick learner, but like to do as much research as possible before I dive into something, expecially swimbaits.
