    die oorspronklike was uit gesny met 'n sker, na die form.
    Op die oomblik gaan daar soveel "idees" deur my kop, met die pote, dit is eintlik verskriklik.
    bv. die scud body, met een van die "barred rubber legs" vas gemaak bo op, vir die illusie van beweging ens.
    die buigings met dun oranje draad, as "micro hotspots" sodat die vis dit makliker raak sien. ens ens.

    I was speaking to Cliff from Fishient about the crab eyes and telling him about the "new crab leg" method, when a light when one.
    What about using copper wire for the leg joints. Easy to work with, easy to finish off.
    Later I tried to cut the "rubber/latex" to get a better joint. Still a work in progress.
    Unfortunately, my UV light's battery is flat, but I think you can create lovely shaped legs, by doing a UV knot sense leg joint.
    Fantastic. A little extra prep work I believe that will give you a much better chance.
    Well done Korrie and thank you.
