whopper plopper 1
It's raining and cold here, so I carved a Whopper Plopper copy yesterday out of Azek PVC trimboard.
I'm waiting for my musky wire to do the final through drilling, finish sanding, and painting.
I was worried I wouldn't be able to copy the prop tail section, but mine does rotate when I shoot air past the bait. It remains to be seen how it works in the water.
The original is 4 1/2" long, 1" diameter, and 34 grams without hardware. Mine is 1" wide, but 1 1/4"deep, so I can add some ballast low if I need it.
A black bird paint job is my plan, dipped in Solarez UV polyester resin for a top coat, which I hope will reinforce the tail prop without adding too much weight.
A fun build.
