    Moose was doing some lure painting, I'm not sure if he's doing it for others now though.

    You could also maybe try Andrew Hinkle (look him up on Facebook)...he does swimbaits and would probably take on the job of repainting some for you.

    the triple trouts are not meant to be taken apart. built like a rock. just paint it like the way it is that way everything lines up straight. but don't forget to sand, prime, and paint. unless you just want a touch up then i would probably do airbrush or paint brush. have fun

    so i've got it all primed grey...debating whether or not to get fish nets to do scales or if i should just wait til i see InRodWeTrust and borrow his...or if i should just go for a straight up paint since i'm brushing by hand and not using an airbrush

    Super hard to get an even coat with hard bristled brushes. I rattled on the primer and base white coat and will have to get soft brushes for the rest

    i just meant the color scheme

    triple trouts don't have mouth or gill details so i'm not gonna try that...the eye is just a sticky eye
