    Wow you did a great job for your first time! Looks really good man:) How did you get the Testors Paint to stick to the rubber tail? Everytime I try it cracks when it dries

    @Curt & Brad - thanks guys! 

    to answer your question about the rubber tail- the paint doesn't stick! I don't have the proper paint for the soft plastic part yet.  Was just kinda painting the bait as a learning process & now that I'm having fun I will invest in some proper materials.  I have some hand made baits in the works and a couple of other BBZs to paint.

    Great that you've made your way into the TackleUnderground , .....you'll definately enjoy yourself in here , and I'm sure we're going to see some more beautiful baits of yours in future .
