That's the damnedest thing I've ever seen here. Very imaginative.

Very surprising, but the coat of paint is flawless !
No cheating allowed with this kind of finish !

That's awesome, Erwin. I assume you dry brushed that gold? I've seen samples of modelers using the drybrush technique to apply NMF and they look very good!
But it's not that simple with metal-colour. It dries much faster than other enamels.
I put enough paint on the brush to get an even coat.Going over it several times with wet paint will start to chip the paint.
It's a delicate balance.
I used 1 and 1/2 yar of Revell enamel to get this done.It got three coats untill I got this result.Slightly sanding it with a kitchen sponge between coats.

Thank you all for the nice comments.
This is something I wanted to do for a long time.Just couldn't decide what kit to use. The Arado seemed a good option.
I first planned to do this in silver.I'm glad I went for gold .
