Tim,the result of your work (both,the replica you made for me and that you made for Bass Tackle Master) are realistic and magnificent beyond expectations. Absolutely wonderful!  I am very grateful and YES!!! It is a lifetime keepsake!!! Everyone who has seen the redear sunfish recognized it is a truly masterpiece of art. Again, my deepest gratitude. Your friend, Hector
