Wow looks like a lot of work, but I bet it'll be worth it. I can't wait to see the finished project

it is turning out to be very much work i figure its gonna take me about 2 more weeks until completely done i think its gonna be worth it though its looking pretty good so far. i'm very anxious to see the it finished too. i still gotta do a coat of black and then blend it all together with some small patterns in all 3 colors and we have some rain coming up so i wont be able to paint when i want to. I'm tryin to keep myself busy until my irs money comes then i get a few new toys including my first AR! gonna tape for the next coat tomorrow but its supposed to rain so i'm not sure when ill be able to post the next pic. i'll keep you guys posted
