very nice! do you use an air brush, or simply go with cans layered (I'm asking but mind you I'm 100% ignorant about painting plugs, heck I'd just like to get to the point where I can replace old guides, and I don't even care if it looks good when I'm done, but I digress.... )

Rob, airbrush. Definately more control and overspray only where you want it. After seeing Rui master the art at fly tying and plug painting day at my house I said "what the hell" and jumped in head first. Glad I did. It's a lot of fun and rewarding......and it's teaching me patients. Now to catch a "30" on my original paint jobs.

Nice paint job guys, I am NOT going to start painting plugs, that would cut into my teaser tying time.

Lol. If you did start, I know you would be painting Mona Lisa's and the Sistine chapel before you know it. Better yet you could come over and paint my house.

Reviving an old thread with some scratch built gliders. Still in the R&D stage but satisfied with how they swim.

The killer B's will get them this weekend and hopefully do some damage.
