3d Foiled Dean Helton

3d Foiled Dean Helton

This is my second attempt at putting 3d scales on a crankbait. It is a flat side balsa wood made by a good friend. I think this one turned out a little better than the first one. Thanks to all for your encouragement, input and advice.


    Looks good John. The scales turned out great.

    It really does look good.  

    I'm glad you were able to make such an original idea work!


    That thing should flash like a trooper's light bar in your rear view mirror when he rolls up on you!

    Thanks Guys, I am very happy with the out come and  it really does have a lot of flash. I will try to get a picture of how bright it is but, you can't see the scales or lure because it is so bright.


    Video of flashing scales. About 2 seconds into the video, you will see the bright flash. If you blink, you will miss it.



    I love the looks of these scales.

    Thanks Rhersh I am happy with the outcome of these also. Looking forward to learning to paint with the air brush. This was done with a small hobby paint brush, acrylics and D2T. I took it fishing a few days ago for about two hours and caught four small 14 to 15 inch bass and two stripes on it.
