I threatened to complicate this paint job really fast. I started off wanting dozens of silver and grey textures but that wasn't working out too well for me. When I finally gave in and realized that this was a very straight forward paint up I started making the progress I'd hoped too. I'm very happy with the finished paint. Hope you like it as well.

As I started to highlight different details with silver and copper I realized it made the bio sort of uneven. So I added copper to the tri-laser and tubing section.

Here you can see where a much brighter silver was used to highlight some of the bio's detailing.

Here's a shot with minimal lighting. It show's some of the shading and color better. I'll be finishing the bio off with some tri-lasers in the next week or so.

amazing how a paint job can sometimes look so much cooler if you don't over think it. like you said, you kept it basic and everything fell into place. looks great.

The original Celtic bio has a pretty understated paintjob. The silver is a little more metallic and warmer than what you ultimately went with and the detailing was brought it with a light blackish-brown wash which can be seen in the pits and crevices. While you may have gone a much more straightforward route than you originally intended your paintjob is still far more detailed and interesting than the original.
