  6. Looks great, Mark! Just curious what product/technique you used for the natural metal finish? I think it turned out really good.

    • Thank you , I painted individual panels black and white then sprayed chrome silver over the the plane . I use Vallejo acrylic paint. I felt it was easier than masking the panels and painting diffrent shades of metallic colors.
