This is the photo of the completed and painted model. I coated the face, ribs and a few other parts in latex and after peeling some away, it looked reasonable and fairly patchy. I painted the scope first in dark graphite grey and then a slightly lighter shade.

I did the same to the base and then merged in some ivory, light brown, rust and red primer, all these were from rattle cans.

When it was all dry i blended some of the colours using and airbrush. Before madness set in, i called it a day and a project that spread over two years was finally done.
