Balsa RC 1.5
This is my second finished lure out of balsa. Made to resemble an RC 1.5. It's 2 7/16" long, 15/16" wide and 1 1/32" tall. Not an exact copy, but close enough after shaping and sanding for hours. It has a wire through harness, is weighted with 0.120 oz. of ballast and has a finished weight of 0.410 oz. including hooks and hardware. Had to bend the lip where it fits into the lip slot so it would miss the wire harness, but the angle and size once it leaves the slot are the same as the RC 1.5. Not sure how deep it will run, but it has no trouble getting to the bottom of the bathtub.
