    I would, but the damn thing is still wet. LOL Can you say "fatal flaw"?

    Yeah I can say Fatal Flaw. Make sure my mount gets hung in the corner on this one. Never try to re-do something on the night before and late at night. I promise you will screw it up worse than what it was. :-[ I won't be there on person but I got a buddy that has me covered. ;D I'll actually be in Ohio at their show. Next year I'll try to make it to Iowa in person. ;) ;D

    I just put the fins on my fish today. I willl have it all the way done late tonight I hope. So far, no accidents yet. Now if the fin junctions look good, and it makes it to the show, I should be ok.

    Thanks Cole!!!! I had that PinkSalmon at the Iowa show 2 years ago. did pretty well with it in MO also.

    I have been tipping scales for the last 2 hours. I have one side of my fish done. Sealed it, and now gotta do my other side. Its the fish on my homepage, but repainted, and different movement with the fins.

    I can't wait for the show and see all the nice pieces!!!
