Spec repaints

Postby Mean Gene » Tue Nov 19, 2013 4:27 pm

Been working on lots of different projects in the shop as I can get to them. Have a bunch of spec repaints in the mix.. Got these three finished this morning, will have the others done shortly. Interesting that inside in the light the browns come out, and outside in the overcast the grays come out. No sun today, so I can't show a sunlight shot. Oh well, I think these should work OK.

Here's a comparison of new, out of the box Dakotas and the flocked Dakota:

Those things look great! Itd be interesting to see a comparison between the flocked decoys and an actual bird you harvest with them :thumbsup:

I only have 1 real bird here to look at, so I'll do a comparison between that and the others. Best I can do right now.
