Looks like another Natural Metal build; but I'm going to look into going back to enamel paint, at least for the base layer. The checkerboard is really talking to me; 84th FS; 78th FG based in Duxford. I'm going to assume that the category is the modeler; not the amount of money you throw at a build.
