Lynn, that is a Blue Marlin but it is a terrible representation of a real fish. If you just tap on the mid side, a replica will sound hollow. If it is a mounted with real parts of the fish, it will sound muffled. You can also tell by the weight of the mount. This is a typical pose often seen in pelagic species, but is inaccurate as to the body shape and arch. The paint job looks nothing like a Blue Marlin and the colors are all wrong. As per value, it is not worth much based on the paint job, and if it is a replica which I feel it is, a new paint job would increase the value and be much easier to sell. Just trying to give you an honest opinion to your question. Hope this helps, and have a great day
This is a fiberglass reproduction
I did this very same blank
And yes a good paint job will increase the value from a fisherman
But from someone wanting a fish not knowing a natural paint job it would sale as well
I would list it at $28 per inch
Thank you very much for your honest opinion . That helps a great deal.
Thank you , that's helpful.
better paint job than a lot of mass produced
How much did you buy it for?
If you wanna sell it id recommend going a lot lower then 28. Some of the best fish guys in the world are only a few dollars more per inch for their work. If you really wanna sell it go somewhere in the 15-20 per inch range.
