PG Strike Freedom - Progress thus far: 4 - Completed Frame Work


I'm pleased with how it's turned out so far. The gold I sprayed on the body ended up being a bit pinkish but it's OK because it more than makes up for it in luster. The gold I used on the wing frame was actually gold leaf and it was very yellowish and required a different type of spray pattern. Not totally even but definitely acceptable.

All together there are about 5 different types of gold on this thing now so there are some nice contrasts even though it's one type of colour. I like it. This is basically how I wanted the frame to look and there isn't anything else to do. I'm going to be working on the backpack and the rifles next. So far the wing repair job seems to be holding up. Very happy with this.
