  1. When I get a master airbrush, the first thing I do is take the needle out and polish it with a super fine polish/cleaner wax. Put a small amount of super fine polish/cleaner wax on q-tip/cotton swab and polish it, till it feels super smooth. My .02
  2. lay side down then put something flat on other flat side measure distance between, half what the distance is your center easiest way to do it now is use an adjustable square, set it to the center measurement and put a pencil/pen and run it top and bottom. My .02
  3. Nice job! a lot of people don't want to spend the time or effort to make jigs but it is the way to go if you want to be able to copy a bait.
  4. I believe bigger than 10/0, start looking at saltwater stuff.
  5. Pin it with tooth picks or metal rods, I use tooth picks, drill 1/16" hole ...stick tooth pick in a cordless drill and wrap 180 grit or less sandpaper around tooth pick and sand until it fits snug. Tooth picks will swell tight in the water and are easy and cheap. Metal glue is usually needed not so with the picks. Addressing the tail issue, quick fix/quick redo.. just dip the part of the tail you want thicker in heated clear plastisol.
  6. It would help if you gave exacts, material used, size, weight placement, and overall weight with all hardware. Plowing generally indicates too much weight/size to bill size/angle of bill.
  7. I believe that will do well.
  8. section before the tail, fat if you want to effect the whole bait, skinny if you want just the tail to move without affecting the front of the bait. I personally use both depending on what the fish want.
  9. Any new design is going to have hiccups, Just remember to take good notes. Resin will make it easier to copy each bait exactly. Tail design can/will have a large impact on how the bait moves, thicker tail section has a tendency to move the whole bait while the thinner tail section has less whole body movement with more deliberate tail movement.
  10. Usually with shallow diving baits line tie is closer to the bill and deep diving further away. Keep in mind 1/8 difference makes a noticeable difference on how the plug reacts. Personally without knowing weight and buoyancy I would put it 1/8-1/4 away from bill. My .02
