First, here are some of the shots I took when it was completed for the first time in 2006. Excuse my poor camera skills at that point.
Here's what happened to the paint after 10 years. I used Winsor and Newton inks on the whole fleet - a cellulose based ink that doesn't age well on 3D surfaces. As a result of this, it's returned to the painting table for a repaint with acrylic based inks and paints. Expect an update soon-ish.

Coincidentally, this is my 500th post on this blog. Here's to the next 500!
