    Jeff,

    What was the base color? It has a bronzish look.

    That bronzish look was accomplished by spraying the entire rocket with Auto Air Sealer Dark (kind of a black airbrush Primer) then spraying VERY LIGHTLY Jacquard Metallic Solar Gold at an extreme angle towards the back. Too much Solar Gold would have made it way too bright, so you can spray as little or as much as you want until you get the final color you desire. Spraying at a sharp angle towards the rear gave more definition to the 3D features (like rivets) by leaving the bottom half dark. Afterwards I sprayed Model Masters Acrylic Flat Clear to remove any chance of shine before I antiqued it. The antiquing was just watered down cheapo black acrylic craft paint brushed on then wiped off with a paper towel before it dried.

    This one is "kinda" steampunk, so it "kinda" belongs here. More pictures are in the ACME Spitfire gallery.
