I'm converting several 28mm boats to be used as fishing boats. Can anyone recommend a source for fishthat can be attached to the deck?
TIA,

Mirliton have a game and fish accessory pack; but there is only about 5 fish. The rest are rabbits and birds. Not sure that would help you.

This is one situation where mixed media might excel. Find a hi-res pic of fish and scale it down. Cut to fit your reservoirs or make the edges irregular and throw a net/mesh over them. A little card or foam board would make the fish pile 3d if placed underneath.

Perhaps better than photos of fish would be scaled down Gyotaku.

This is an art of inking fish and making a print of it.

Grains of rice would be about the right size.
