    and some more pic . i paint it with humbrol 53 gun metal and used humbrol 62 thinned with white spirit for rust , however this gun metal looks bit to grey I'm probably going to mix some black with it and paint it again , i also installed a laser pointer in scope to imitate a sight , but that wont last coz i just found a proper scope with mounts for 5

    Nice job and really inspiring. I intend to scratch build the ESB version and your work really motivates me. Did you use the Wizard of Light templates (which are great...Thanks WOL!!) or some other source material?
